Having recently been given a cortisone injection to address the pain and associated limited mobility I purchased this DVD. This is an excellent collection of soft yoga exercises. I particularly appreciate the explanations that accompanies the visual techniques. I gave it 4 stars as I wished it had had more on the low back exercises. However, having said that it also give 2 other exercise routines to address the hip and sacrum and another to work on your strength and balance. I nice package to introduce you to yoga if you are unfamiliar with the practice and / or for those of us who know of its benefits but have neglected ourselves to only succumb to a herniated disc before we return to the grass root. I believe given the soft /gentle routines it would benefit those of all shapes and sizes putting little stress on fragile key areas. It is obvious that some thought has been put into the exercises and methodology. Graded introductory gentle warm ups to more complex towards to finish.

I have been having problems with my back and started using the video along with chiropractic and massage therapy. As I was use to practicing yoga at a studio, a DVD explaining postures to help with my back was just the tool I needed. This one is easy to follow and gives lots of advise as to how to do the positions.

The instructions are easy to follow, the exercises are manageable but the instructors voice is pretty dry and boring. I agree the voice needs to be relaxing, and it is, but also quite dry.

Once regarded as simply an Eastern discipline, yoga is now a familiar part of the health and fitness scene. A recent national survey has found that nearly 16 million Americans currently practice yoga. Although many people are doing yoga to ease stress and improve their health, a growing number have specific medical goals in mind, such as getting rid of their back pain. But does it really work?

Well, according to a 2009 study in the journal Spine, yoga therapy CAN reduce pain and functional impairment in people with chronic low back pain. This condition can be difficult to treat, and not surprisingly, having a bad back is one of the most commonly reported reasons people are turning to alternative and complementary therapies like yoga.

With great videos like Viniyoga Therapy with Gary Kraftsow DVD 2-Pack Viniyoga Therapy for the Low Back, Sacrum & Hips with Gary Kraftsow, you don't have to be enrolled in a study, or drag yourself to a class to get all the pain-relieving benefits of yoga. Just pop the DVD in, and you'll find the video divided up into some of these sections, such as...

-Presentation on Understanding Back Pain and the application of yoga therapy.
-Technique Workshop on how to safely perform postures and movements.
-Focused practice for Low Back and Sacrum Therapy.
-Focused practice for Hip Therapy.
-Integrated practice for sustained low back Strength and Stability.

Its set up pretty well. In a nutshell, they cover some facts about back pain, and then introduce you to the theory of yoga and some of the postures.
