About 20 years ago, I was starting to feel the negative aspects of teaching aerobics
and running. I also had scoliosis which was causing pain in my neck and shoulders as well as the lower back (sacroiliac joint).
I went to a week-long Yoga seminar. Immediately, the pain went away!! I also started feeling more grounded and secure!
Because there was no one in the area teaching Yoga, I started teaching a yoga-
stretch class at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club. The members loved it so much they
asked me to make a video so they could do it more at home. So now you can have
the opportunity to learn some of the best yoga stretches in your home and get relief
from back pain. Many people have done this video so many times that they have
It starts with a standing side stretch which will stretch your whole
side body. Then you go to a wall and open up the chest and upper back as well as
the back of the legs (hamstrings) and the lower back. Then you move to the floor and
stretch the psoas (great relief for lower-back pain) and also the outer hips with stretches
that resemble a lunge pose. Then lying on your back and using a belt you will learn
a stretch that opens the hamstrings, inner groins, illiotibial band (outer thigh) in less
than five minutes. This video ends with a seated twist.
You will end up feeling open and free. Doing this video on a regular basis will help you feel
younger and more agile. It is a great way to start your day and even end your day. Some
people use it as a way to give them more energy in the middle of the day. You can even do
15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening. Regardless of how you schedule
your session, it can be at your convenience and you get to have relief of back pain!
