David has spent much of his adult life understanding how to heal his lower back pain. In this class, David takes you through a beginner level yoga class that shows you how to strengthen your core to protect your lower back (including the transverse abdominis), how to use yoga stretches, or poses, to heal the lower back and how to use relaxation to speed up the healing process. The lower back stretches alone can cause great relief and the three approaches together will ensure that it lasts. This is the first of a 2-class series. The second class isĀ Yoga for Lower Back Pain: Strengthen, Stretch and Relax Your Back II.

Equipment: Strap, Bolster
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yoga for Back Care

All. I can say is WOW! Thank you so much David for this incredible series. I had a fall and landed on my tailbone about a month ago. I've only been working this series now for a couple of days and already feel improvement. I am inspired to become strong in my core as I venture into my middle years.

Just the right mix to get a new focus on lower back pain and really have it be managed rather than constantly working against it and trying to avoid it. Thank you so much for this class that opens The physical and the mental space of managing the pain.

Good for immediate relief as well as strength building

Thanks, David. I hurt my back recently trying to lift a wheelchair, and this class seems to allow some de-compression. Gentle enough not to aggravate my back, but soothing as well. One of the problems with many of the back classes are that they are for prevention and not necessarily when you are in pain at the moment. This class stries a good balance, tipped slightly for those in pain.

Amazing class with precise instruction

Loved this session. I'ved suffered on and off with lower back pain for a few years and the last few weeks have been particularly painful. I spotted this class and thought I'd give it a try and it was just perfect. I will definitely be coming back to this class time and time again.

As always David's instructions are so clear and precise. I never have to look at the screen as the instructions are so easy to follow. Thank you so much David for this class.

Sooo calm, precise, and

Sooo calm, precise, and relaxing.
A great one to do on a day when you "don't feel like doing Yoga", or being physically compromised.
Thank you, David for this also very foundational class.
Will do more of yours again - fabulous effects on me.
....and I liked the purple / green / black colour coordination (work on the strap colour lol)!
