This 3 class series kicks off with a tried and tested stretching programme for starting the process of easing back pain.

Coby will stretch out your upper back with the Standing Twisted Cat, the Standing Twist, the Child (Pindasana) and the Maltese Cross (Shava Udarakarshanasana) completing with the Cat/Tiger (Marjariasana / Vyaghrasana) series to also begin the process of strengthening.

Thanks Coby & Annie..finding this practice really helpful for relaxing all my muscles that have tightened as a result of OA of my hips. Hoping to be able to move into the next session soon.

Thank you so much Coby and Annie for this class - my whole body felt very relaxed by the end and realise just how much tension I can carry as a result f chronic back issues which have recently been affecting my hip too. An invaluable session that includes all the stretches, sequences and asana I needed during lockdown when the usual chirp and acupuncture not accessible! I intend to practice regularly along with Kate's Back Care Class 2 . I am very grateful!! Kathy Field DYTT student

Really enjoying this class. My 3rd repetition today, and I can walk and relax with much less stress. I'm going to follow the full six-week programme. Can't thank you enough.

My upper back, neck and shoulders have become very tight due to a prolonged period of stress. I have started doing this class to help me focus on mobilising my spine and stretching out my muscles. After just one class I already feel a difference in my spine and muscles but also in my frame of mind and breathe. Thank you for the reminders of how amazing Dru is and especially EBR2 part one. I REALLY experienced the wonder of it today:-)

Having fallen at work yesterday and hurt my back, this routine really helped to ease the pain and loosen up all the muscles that had gone into a tight spasm. Thank you.

Hello, when Coby says practice this for two weeks, and then this and the second for four weeks, does she mean every day? many thanks

Hi Coby, this is a wonderful class. I used it as an example for my first ever class as a teacher. I practice it for two weeks before the class and it went very good. The studio is invaluable resource for the teachers. Thank you.

Thanks Coby, What a lovely class. All stuff I've done many times before but so beautifully taught I'm sure I'll enjoy this class many more times over the next few weeks.
