We all have times in our lives that are tough. It might be because of a bereavement, a break up or other relationship problems, redundancy, financial difficulties or illness, physical or mental illness such as depression.

Back pain can be an issue as we age due to changes in posture caused by tight hamstrings and hip flexors, tight chest and shoulder muscles.
Also, as we age, our core strength may weaken so that our lower backs do not have the support they had when we were younger.
In this yoga sequence we stretch tight hamstrings and hip flexors and strengthen the core muscles.
