  1. Hi Candace, Recently, with the help of my yoga teacher, I discovered that I have a tight fascia in my lower back - I think it's called the thoraclumbar fascia. I always thought it was my tight hamstrings preventing me from doing any sort of forward fold, but now I realize it's my back. For example, during forward fold, I can pretty much only bend 90 degrees and just let my head hang. I'm not really able to stretch my hamstrings too well since my back is inhibiting me from any forward bend. It's giving me some lower back pain as well. Would you be able to tell me more about the fascia as I don't really know much about it, and what sort of things can I do to stretch it out and eventually increase my back flexibility to a normal range?
