YOGA FOR SCIATICA | RELEASE
LEVEL 0-1 • 32m
Sciatica can be caused by overused and underused muscles, compression, damage or injury to the Sciatic nerve. However, we can help relieve discomfort by gently stretching and strengthening through the back, hips and hamstrings. This class focuses on mindfully and gently opening and strengthening these areas through a steady and calming yoga session. Please be especially mindful when compressing the Glutes and Hamstrings and be very careful not to overstretch these areas.
