    No - but sounds like another reason not to buy Sadie's video. However, I did damage my back from incorrect stretches when I did jazz - we were encouraged to "stretch" standing and bending over (you cannot stretch your hamstrings this way). I was very enthusiastic and got all the movement from my lower back. Could have been worse - one teacher would leap on students doing flat backs at the barre!

    I know of a few who strained their backs but they had a teacher who learned from videos and didn't teach correct posture. Listen to these ladies and you'll be fine.
