Stretches for lower back?

Tonight after class my lower back was sore, like when it wants to be stretched but it can't. I tried sitting and leaning over from my spine, and it didn't really help. I tried standing and leaning over to stretch my lower back, but that doesn't work too well either. I think I pushed a little too hard on my arabesques :D Any good stretches would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Dancergal, you have already done the best ones. The only other one I can think of would be to find something that is the right height, similar to that of a barre, like a counter top or a chair, and stand in parallel a little back from the "barre", hold the barre and bend forward until your torso is parallel to the floor, with your head at the level of your arms. But I would also continue to try the one sitting on the floor and bending forward over your legs, too.
