Gary, I love you! This DVD has changed my life, seriiously. I'm buying another one for my cousin and now I'm trying the one for upper back, neck and shoulders. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. For anyone with a "bad back", chronic pain, and difficulty moving, sleeping, simply living please try this - you will benefit greatly. (Posted on 10/27/10)

What a lifesaver Review by UALGAL
Rating
I suffered for months and went through 3 rounds of traditional PT including massage and even tried Rolfing. All good but this DVD is outstanding and I'm sure is what started to make the most lasting improvment!

Thank you so much!!

love this dvd Review by bean

I suffered an L5-S1 herniation in October of 2008 and was told to have surgery by my chiropractor, of all people. I decided to try yoga and happened upon this dvd. I have done it almost daily since then and can honestly say my back has never felt better. People always tell back sufferers to focus on the "core" but these exercises work where back pain resides most and allow you to gently and effectively strengthen the muscles responsible for good back health. I highly recomment this even if you are now having pain. These exercises diminish and eventually eliminate back pain! (Posted on 5/11/09)

Media Reviews

"Viniyoga master Gary Kraftsow developed protocols for a recent National Institutes of Health-sponsored study of treatment for back pain. This excellent two-DVD series is based on this work and on his 30 years of experience as a yoga therapist. Each video includes short but valuable explanations of the types and causes of back pain, as well as the goals of yoga therapy and a techniques workshop.

One DVD focuses on the upper back, neck, and shoulders; the other, on the low back, sacrum, and hips. The detailed instruction, gentle repetitive movements, and focus on moving with awareness and the breath make these ideal practices for a wide range of people, including those who may not have pain but can benefit from strengthening and stabilizing their backs.”"

-- Yoga + Joyful Living Magazine

"Gary Kraftsow... elevates the genre of yoga DVDs to a whole new level... Whether you endure back pain or not, these are some of the best yoga DVDs on the market."
