    I love yoga…been doing it for 5 years now. I have a sensitive back as I work in childcare and I totally agree with u. I will not do the bending forward poses anymore as it triggers my back straight away.

    Hello Bob and Brad. I am a Hatha yoga teacher, I have been teaching since 2003. I blew a disc last June (3 days of lifting heavy items, combined with heavy lifting over many years finally caught up with me) and I can tell you that all the asanas you refer to, I have already been avoiding since my injury; avoiding out of fear because after not being able to walk for two weeks, I never want to have a repeat herniated disc, but also because when attempting gently to adapt one of these poses, my back is just not ready one year on. I am healing but I will never do these stress inducing poses again, my practise will have to adapt and evolve.
    Everyone is different, all circumstances are different, but for me personally as someone with an existing injury, I agree with you both entirely. I see that you tried to demonstrate the poses simply; of course you understand there would be preparation time and correct breathing to take into consideration, but your video cannot be one hour long.
    I thank you two for this video, indeed all your videos, as always. I love your gentle humour and the useful information. You help people, this is a great kindness. Xx

    Bob and Brad, you should re-do this video with a qualified yoga teacher who can rebut your claims. Yoga is more than just about positions. It's about breathing and easing into a pose. There's no doubt one can injure oneself when doing a pose incorrectly. That can be said about any exercise, whether it's yoga or not. So, please bring an expert next time to have them talk to you about the do's and don'ts of yoga.

    Yes, don't do these, Brad, until you are flexible enough to do these safely.

    Bob and Brad – what about downward dog? Is that good or bad for the back?

    This was sillier than usual. Start with a private yoga session, or an intro to yoga. If you have any injuries be sure and tell the teacher. Remember that you can get injured doing any sport or exercise. So ballet, soccer, yoga, football, these are all fun, but they all carry risks. I haven’t seen y’all do any videos on the dangers of playing soccer… or lacrosse or baseball. Any qualified yoga teacher is going to have a systematic approach to these and show you the safest ways to approach them for your body. And, of course you know this, but the back bending poses that you keep calling stretches – those aren’t back stretches at all, they’re abdominal and chest stretches and back strengtheners. Yoga teachers ask you to practice with mindful awareness and also that you take responsibility for your experience. We teach you that your spine can and should be strong and flexible in every direction and that, just like working in the weight room where you wouldn’t try the most complicated lifting routine with the heaviest weights when you’re first starting, you don’t do the hardest version of the poses when you’re starting out… and there may be a time when you decide you don’t want to do the most difficult version, also. Any yoga teacher would have asked you to correct your posture as you were so slumped over and twisted and clearly didn’t know what the focus of each of these is. There ARE poses that are dangerous and maybe should be avoided by most people who aren’t in the circus, but having a private yoga session prior to attempting your first session is so helpful to people who have any physical issues.

    I would not want to do your version of a forward fold either… if the hamstrings and hip flexors are tight, we encourage a block, towel or supportive object underneath the butt to lengthen the lumbar/sacral area or over all spine and then fold. Perhaps a strap to wrap the feet if you can't comfortably reach forward. Lots of options to facilitate folks that are tight. We always encourage length through the spine. Love you guys but terrible video because all of your poses are just incorrect… ill have to leave this video at the beginning of first pose ?‍♀️

    What you're doing there's not really yoga. Just bad stretching. Also you only respond to the small number of comments agreeing with you. Misinformative and closed minded.

    This is completely unsubstantiated outdated opinion. If you want up-to-date info on the back and movement, check out Peter O’Sullivan and his crew. The myths you heard in this video only perpetuate fear of movement.

    I appreciate your scientific orientation in assessing these poses. You are helping a lot of people.

    Please get a yoga instructor to show these poses of what you're NOT recommending. It's not clear with your demonstrations. I realize this would be awkward.

    Hi! Recently I started yoga 3 months back, and feeling myself light
    no fatigueness, on third month of my practice I feel flexibility in my body.
    With due respect I want to share my experience of yoga which brings lightness in body,stillness of mind and freedom in body movements.
    Sir the way u demonstrate the yoga poses definitely it will hurt a person who attempting it first time… begginers should start yoga under experience yoga instructor to avoid any injury..as every individual is different and all yoga poses are not for everyone after knowing the person body history yoga should be started and it will definitely help a person if he or she maintains body capacity limit .To do any yoga pose u need to prepare ur body first from the base if the posture is correct a person wont hurt his or herself …yoga is a beautiful practice and it benefited me alot before that I was doing gym and always gets tired and want body massage but now I feel light and energetic, I was doing my yoga practise under yoga instructor so I feel myself more confident and connected within my breath. Never do yoga without a trainer or just seeing the poses pictures will definitely hurts u as I was feeling pain when I was watching ur video.?.sorry for that,plz dont give wrong information for the self progression.
    Kind regards

    Tight back is not good if it’s also weak. Flexible but strong is the key
