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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gale So simple, but effective
I ruptured my L5 disc and had surgery, but the slightest thing could aggravate my psiatic nerve & I also had developed bursitis in my hip. I was in physical therapy for 3-4 weeks at a time, about 4 times a yr. This went on for 4 yrs until my neurologist recommended this DVD. I couldn't do it all at first, but over time I could do things I couldn't at first--painfree. By doing these stretches 3-4 times a week I have almost alleviated my pain & stiffness. Buy it, try it!
