Viniyoga Therapy Complete Back Care Series Effective! Review by Brad
I had been doing hatha yoga for 15 years, but a few years back I suffered a herniated S4-S5 disc sports-related injury that had me in unrelenting sciatic pain for three long years. With characteristic discipline, I tried half a dozen different therapies for relief, including the Egoscue method, the McKenzie method, Global Postural Re-education and kinesiotherapy, as well as regular sessions of acupuncture and massage. I tried to return to hatha yoga, but couldn’t continue due to the painful flair ups. Today, I want to report here, that no other body work has freed me from pain so quickly and effectively as the Kraftsow Viniyoga series for the Upper and Lower Back, found on his DVDs. The postures and movements are deceptively simple, but they have literally reconstructed my postural alignment and spinal strength in less than a month, which in turn has relieved my pain and put me back into my martial arts practice without fear. I’ve now incorporated the DVD sessions into my daily life and feel better than in any former period, including my years in hatha yoga. I urge anyone with back pain to dedicate themselves to this plan and see for themselves the results.

Viniyoga Therapy Complete Back Care Series What a lifesaver Review by UAL GAL
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!

Viniyoga Therapy Complete Back Care Series 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!

Viniyoga Therapy Complete Back Care Series 5 out of
5 user 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.”"
