This 2 DVD set puts together 2 single DVDs released several years ago. They were reviewed by Beth Cholette at the time: Yoga to the Rescue for Neck & Shoulders and Yoga to the Rescue for Back Pain. I turned to the DVD on back pain because I was getting lower back pain. While the DVD had useful information, I agreed with Cholette's comment that the program is disjointed and hard to use in a simple way. With over an hour of material, it is a lot to do at once, and it is hard to know how to navigate it. So it is best suited for people who have the time to view the whole DVD and make a note of those parts they want to view again. Those who are looking for a selection of a few workouts they can use to reduce or prevent back pain will want to look elsewhere. But it is worth looking over once to get ideas about how to use yoga to avoid back pain.
