This video is part of a three-part series of lessons appropriate for anyone with back issue or any issue preventing large, complicated movements. None of the series have any flexion exercises for the spine, making it safe for most types of back conditions.
The lessons are a blend of yoga, Pilates, and myofascial release. Each series contains core stability and strength work, hip, hamstring and shoulder openers, and centering exercises.
This lesson starts with myofascial release with a tennis ball or similar therapy ball for the shoulders and upper back. This lesson includes extra chest opening movements, along with some work on your hands and knees.
Also consider downloading my free video on neutral alignment and lumbar stabilization. In it I describe in detail how to engage the abdominals and pelvic floor correctly and how to breathe well for maintaining stability. You will find a separate download link for this free video on my Video Downloads webpage.
