 Very good one, different one than the previous one which gives us more options for a quick session in the living room front of TV, my girls are enjoying my spectacle/show on carpet each time. LOL Thanks Abi - regards

 It's really good to mix up your routines to avoid RSI and also so you don't hit a plateau. Love the image of your girls giggling at your valiant efforts!

 This was exactly what I needed, thanks. I spend way too much time sitting at a desk, and then expect my body to leap into action for 90 mins of biking. No wonder I ache. You've got an incredibly soothing voice too, which helps.

 My pleasure! Try to get up and walk around every 30 mins or so during the day and stand as much as you can. This will also help you not to feel so stiff.

 @yoga15app: Plus of course, you're gorgeous, so that helps too.

 @yoga15app I really struggle getting into some of these shapes, especially when bending forward from a standing position. I can't get anywhere near my toes, only about halfway down my shins. Any tips for this?

 Have you tried easing into it? say taking 5-10 minutes to loosen and progress into the position?
Try putting your hands on the ground a couple feet in front of you and work your way backwards slowly

 Specifically for forward bends/touching your toes, Google "hip hinge". It's crucial you don't round your lower back and add extra stress to your lumbar spine. The aim is not to touch your toes but to stretch your hamstrings which is going to take patience and persistence.

 This is great general advice Dustin. If you're not ready for a pose and you don't yet have the required flexibility, take it easy, warm up to it.

 Perfect, thanks abi. I think I'll do this one quite often. I've got a weakness in my lower back, do you have any other tips on how to strengthen my lower back?

 No problem. This routine is fairly gentle so you should be able to practice it every day or so. I'll post an article in the next couple of days with lots more tips.
