I am not taking any regular Yoga classes, but my wife is and she brought the book and CD's home from Robins Yoga Barn and I began following the book and CD's. I have been on the program for a little over four weeks and I have seen significant improvement in the way I feel more limber and posture has improved along with being able to move more freely. I believe that once I finish the 5 CD's as directed I will be active with Yoga the rest of my life( I am 71 years old). Robin has written a great program and is a great Yoga instructor!!

I sit at a computer all day, and work out and do yoga every day, but after 3 days of doing the first practice, I woke up this morning without pain - that is new! I found more on Robin at [...] so cool that she is bridging the gap between yoga and western modalities - check this out and pass it around - wouldn't the world be a better place if we weren't so grumpy with back pain all the time?

Yoga teachers, do yourself a huge favor and buy this, ASAP. Buy it for your own practice, so that you may learn from a master "teacher of teachers." Buy it for your students, so that you can learn these tried & true, proven methods for working with low back pain.

I've worked with these sequences in my own practice, and learned so much, even though I've been practicing yoga for 20 years, and teaching for 18 (ten of those years under Robin's direction), and am certified at the 500 hour level by the American Viniyoga Institute. I continue to use "Yoga for Low Back," both in my own personal practice, and in my teaching. But if you can't study with Robin, this is the next best thing. Her voice will clearly guide you through the practices. The text & photos in the book will help illustrate what you hear. And your back, and your students' backs, will feel blissfully better.

This book has the best layman's information for understanding the physiology of the spine and how it relates to the rest of the body of anything I have found. I was diagnosed with scoliosis over 30 years ago and have worked with MDs, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Yoga Teachers and Personal Trainers and never gotten the information I needed to really make and maintain positive changes in the health of my lower back till I started working with this book. The author had done an excellent job and I would recommend this to anyone, no matter what level of restriction or pain your experiencing. I wish I would have found it sooner.

This is an excellent program. I have had lower back pain for years. I have tried muscle relaxers, pain medications, physical therapy and manipulation nothing worked as well as Robin Rothenberg's low back program. After using The Essential low back program I no longer have any pain or stiffness. I recomend this program to anyone with lower back problems.

Dear Amazon.com, I recently purchased the Essential Low Back Program by Robin Rothenberg and I wanted to go on record that I am very happy to have it! Over ten years ago I had a sudden cardiac arrest, not to be confused with a heart attack. I was clinically dead for 20 min. and the statistics say that I was "200%" dead. All of my medical Dr's. tell me it's a miracle that I survived - and without brain damage. It did leave me very weak for months after and one of the ways I built my strength up again was to begin taking Yoga classes from Robin. Since then I have had many other life challanges. The major one was losing a son in a drowning accident. A year later I had to have open-heart surgery to correct my mitral valve. Through all of this and more Robin and her staff at the Yoga Barn supported and encouraged me. My Yoga practice strenghtens my mind, emotions and my physical needs There were many times when I felt as though my Yoga practice saved
my life! I do not have lower back problems, Thank God, but the practices covered in Robin's new program are still amazingly helpful and I will share about them with my friends. Now when I travel via motor home I can take Robin with me through these tapes and book which will be a great help. I will be telling others about it who may not be able able to take classes from Robin so they can enjoy her expert guidance also. Sincerely, Rachel Wierda

I have had chronic neck and back problems for years, and I was getting very discouraged. Of course I tried everything - physical therapy, chiropractry, acupuncture, shots in my neck. These gave me some relief but required lots of office visits for short-term relief.

I had tried several yoga classes and videos, but they all were too difficult for me. The videos were particularly hard because I had to keep looking at the TV screen to see how to do the poses. A friend recommended Robin's therapeutic yoga class, and I have been going once a week and using the CD's ever since. Although my pain is not completely gone, I now have, anytime I choose, a way to ease the tension in my muscles.I am not disciplined enough to do it every day, but I find myself wanting to practice more often because it works!

I spent a month doing the first CD and now have practiced with them all. Robin describes every move and guides you to get into the correct position. She makes it easy to understand and easy to do. She teaches you how to modify the position if it hurts. The stretches feel good and the breathing exercises help you focus as well as relax.

I am really grateful to have this program. It has given me hope that I won't be in pain for the rest of my life!
