In my classes, on my blog, and by email several people have asked for some help with lower back and hip pain.

I have pulled this clip from my Heal Your Back Now! DVD.

This is Part 1, which means I will be posting more video clips from the DVD.

Don’t think that because this is so simple and easy that you won’t get a lot of benefit from it.

I use this method in Yoga Therapy to teach students how to

  • Relax
  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Reduce Swelling and Inflammation
  • Heal Back and Joint Pain
  • Learn the Proper Attitude to Practice the Yoga Postures and Meditation

For success stories with this method, check out this post: Heal Your Back Now! and this Comment.

Feel free to leave comments below and let me know how this is working for you, and what you need.

I will be expanding the Videos and Posts on Back and Hip Healing.

Do you need more help? Move videos? More explanation?

Just let me know. Here is the link to Part 2.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you,

Thanks Norm. In most posts/video you encouraged to breathe through disphragm (or do disphragmatic breathing). plesae elaborate on disphragmatic breathing.

Good question, Vijay.

Often I say, “Slow, deep, complete, diaphragmatic breathing. Breathing from the bottom of the lungs.” Often called the yoga complete breath, this is the most efficient and beneficial way to breathe. This will help you to more easily calm and relax the body and mind.

When you are standing or sitting, gravity keeps a lot of venous blood at the bottom of the lungs, which is also where the largest surface of lungs are. Most people are breathing shallowly, rapidly, and incompletely into the upper part of the lungs only. This means that they are doing a poor job of expelling carbon dioxide, the waste material/toxin of cellular metabolism, and taking in oxygen. This kind of breathing increases agitation in the mind and body.

Please let me know if you have more questions,
