This was not what I expected. It would be more appropriate for someone currently recovering from an injury, however not great for building back strength. It doesn't flow very well from one posture to another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chay Yoga From Back Care with Rodney Yee
I was determined to find a way to get relief from back pain after many, many years of chiropractors and massage. This DVD gave me the freedom I was seeking.....it has been a blessing for me. I have had back pain most of my adult life and this is the first time I feel in control of how I feel. The exercises were not difficult even at age 56 and the relaxing vioce Rodney uses as well as the breathing reminders and beautiful scenery all combine to produce "Magic" for me~ I noticed a difference afer the first few sessions. I have to remind myself to completely relax and that helps greatly with the results. I have memorized several posistions so I can do them on the road in our motorhome when we travel with or without turning on the DVD. As most RVers know...travel can take a toll on your back and Yoga for Backs is the answer! I still have a lot to learn and am looking forward to MORE YOGA with Rodney Yee....Thank you from the bottom of my heart for opening up this door to feeling GREAT~ A special mention....the staff I dealt with were wonderful....very professional yet friendly...they went above and beyond for me at Gaiam...I will be a customer for life~~~

I bought this for me. However, my mother is having lots of back pain too. I gave it to her to use first and see if it helped her. She hasn't used it yet nor given it back. I am about to cry foul, (Just Kidding).
I am about to ask for it back so I can try it myself.
I think giving her a month to try it out proved to me that she is not really interested and I am!!
Here's to getting my relief soon!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by cgee Very Easy and Relaxing
I bought this video because I was having some back pain even though I am still fairly young and active. I thought this video would be a little more rigorous and would help me get a stronger back. However, it's more of a relaxing video with poses that lightly stretch and comfort the back. You will need two chairs, one of those long pillows (rolled up blankets might do), and some yoga blocks. My yoga practice is done in the morning to wake me up and get me ready for the day so this video doesn't really fit into that; this video is very relaxing so it's more of a gentle evening practice. To be honest, I've done the video only once. It's not a bad video by any means, it's just not a good fit for me.
If you're looking for a light, gentle, relaxing, slow-paced video, then this is for you. Otherwise, I would recommend the Power Yoga Flexibility DVD. I've been doing that regularly and have not had any back pain lately.
