Rated 5 out of 5 by spiky Great Back Pain Relief!
I'm so glad I purchased this DVD. I suffer from a lot of lower back pain and this helps me a great deal. I not only use it as a regular workout but also when my back pain gets intolerable. Rodney's excellent cueing enables me to follow along quite easily. Using the support of a chair was new for me but it really helps a lot to move more easily.

i am just getting back into yoga, and have had some back problems. I LOVE this video. Rodney is easy to understand, and his voice is very soothing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by NoneOfMyNickNamesWork Gaiam needs to check its own DVDs
Under a different account we ordered this DVD, and it didn't work. The screen is all large colorful squares, making vague shapes of Rodney Yee doing his yoga routine, but without enough detail to know what he is actually doing. We returned the DVD for another because the DVD clearly had problems. The second one they sent had the same problem, though it did not appear until about 2 minutes in. Gaiam needs to make sure its DVDs are in working condition before packaging and shipping them, in my opinion. Another problem with this DVD is in the program itself. This requires a chair, but in order for it to actually help (rather than hurt) the back, the chair must be of a certain height. If a person does not own a chair with a relative height, they can't perform 1/3 of the exercises.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Goodis Useless DVD for Back Care
As I am suffering from Sciatic nerve pain, I expected this DVD to help me become a healthier me. The are too many props needed, to have at your disposal to use this DVD.The timing is fast and does take into account, those who must move slow due to back issues. This class would be better suited to a yoga studio.The DVD does not allow you to fast forward or rewind to specific poses as they are (linked )categorized by sections , not poses.This may be a good DVD for those who want to strengthen a healthy back,
alas for me this was a misleading purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Corndog Bulged disk help
I love Rodney Yees other workouts, so after I developed two bulged disks in my lower back, I picked up this dvd. It covers all the stretches my physical therapist assigned me, but has the calming effect typical of a great yoga session. Without the distraction of a classroom I can really listen to what my body is telling me and not overdo it.
