Why do so many of us have pain and discomfort in our lower and middle back when we try to go into forward bends/forward folds?

While this session does not solve this problem, it attempts a thorough exploration of the lumbar area:

  • experientially through simple movements
  • by looking at the anatomy of the lower back.

Having an anatomical understanding of our bodies is not essential for Asana practice.  But having at least broad overview can often guide us and inform our actions.
