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 is Yoga for Lower Back Pain: Strengthen, Stretch and Relax Your Back II.

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

Would it reduce the effectiveness to do 20 minutes during a study break, then finish it after another study session?

In general, it's more effective to stretch when the muscles are warm so best to do it all in one flow. However, you could warm up the muscles with a bit of exercise before you begin and I can't see it being a problem.

Thank you so much :) <3 Take
