Hi I’m Jessica.

I want you to know this right off the bat: low back pain is not something you have to live with.

The cause of low back pain is no longer a mystery.

And even if you had an old injury, or an x-ray to prove how bad things have gotten, or fused vertebrae – you can ALWAYS reduce your low back pain, and usually make it go away completely, with yoga for back pain that anyone can do.

Growing up I watched my dad’s back “go out” frequently. He’d be flat on his back for a couple days, and then go about his life hoping it wouldn’t happen again.

When I started practicing yoga in the 90’s, my own back pain (and neck pain, and wrist pain) went away. I set out to figure out why. 

Why does some yoga heal us? And some hurt us?

After more than 10,000 hours of studying alignment, and receiving my Masters in Kinesiology, I finally understood. I created Ma Yoga to help people realize that YOU have the power to get yourself out of pain.

You see, it’s not the pose you’re in – it’s what you’re doing inside the pose.

You can be hurting yourself on your mat, and healing yourself while driving.

And when you understand alignment-based yoga for back pain, everything becomes a healing pose – sitting, standing, even sleeping.

And right now, you can start your free Ma Yoga Living Membership trial, and get instant access to yoga for back pain in Happy Back in 5!

What Happy Back Practitioners Are Saying...

I’d give 10 stars if I could! Ma Yoga was a lifesaver to me during the last trimester of my pregnancy last year.

I had pretty intense lower back pain and used the ‘Happy Back Practice’ routine to help relieve the pain and regain mobility.

Jess was SUPER helpful, followed up and provided additional recommendations on how to get relief.



Just finished the rescue stretches and I can tell there’s a difference! Oh, thanks so much :o)

My back was in pretty bad shape – Achy, sharp pains…just overall UGH.

The rescue poses felt so relaxing I almost fell asleep. After just doing Module 3, I feel looser and able to move without as much pain. I feel encouraged that with continued practice I can nip this back pain in the butt!


I’ve done the Happy Back video the past 2 mornings & it feels AMAZING when I’m doing it.

I’ve been trying to stand with my butt back more.

Thank you for being so so helpful!

I honestly wouldn’t be painting right now if I hadn’t taken Happy Back.

Jessica walks you through each step so it’s so easy. Now I do simple things to change how I’m standing while I’m doing my work, and I’m pain free.

At night I do the Rescue Poses just because they feel so good and relaxing.

Yoga for Back Pain Addresses More Than Physical Suffering

Low back pain comes with a lot of emotions. We feel fear that it will stay like this 
forever, anger at ourselves for doing this AGAIN, and sadness at what we can’t do right now.

And this can create a cycle where we feel hopeless, like there’s nothing we can do.

That’s why just changing ourselves physically isn’t enough.

While what we do is similar to physical therapy, you’llHappy Back in 5: Ma Yoga for Back Pain find there’s a mental/emotional component in Ma Yoga for back pain too.

The idea of alignment isn’t just about moving your spine back toward its natural curves.

It’s also aligning with your own highest possibilities.

When you learn to breathe first before moving, you’ll connect to your body’s intelligence that will begin to guide you.

healthy back for moms - pregnancy yoga for back painInstead of having thoughts like “I will always be in pain” or “it’s my fault”, you’ll start to notice thoughts like “all I have to do is return to my natural curve” or “that’s ok, justs 5 minutes of yoga for back pain will make it go away completely”.

If you start the day finding alignment again in a delicious five minute Happy Back Practice, and then take that awareness into your day when you’re sitting, standing – even lying down to sleep – you’ll feel better not must physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.

We can’t wait to help you feel optimistic about your body again!
