These videos are great if you have a desk job and don’t move as much as you could, or if you already have stiff spine, shoulders or hips. Just remember to do the practices in these videos. Every day. We have got videos of different lengths here so you don’t need to put your back out trying to fit it in your schedule.

We don’t guarantee that you’ll be ready to join the Chinese circus, but we think that your back will appreciate the extra loving you give it and will reward you with less pain. You’ll start feeling that your life has some backbone, quite literally. This will lead to you making better decisions, possibly leading a life from a position of courage.

    Emma Henry

    This challenging, full-length fast paced Jivamukti class is a cleansing, rinsing twist-based, a strong and risinging practice. Starts with chanting and call and response Sita/Ram.

Sita/Ram are the perfect couple, and from this practice, this is the most perfect asana practice. The intention is set to being the most perfect being we able to be. With this intention, this Jivamukti class will keep you moving.

    Beginners Creative Vinyasa

    Liz Lark

    A lovely introduction to the standing poses or for when you don't feel like a more dynamic practice. This is a slow, nourishing vinyasa without a sun salutation in sight. Highly recommend also for advanced level practitioners who are having a slower day. This sequence is highly restorative, as well as benefiting from being a breakdown of some of the more familiar poses.
