This is a problem as old as mankind itself, and it often has much to do with our postural habits. Our latest digital workshop, "Yoga to Soothe Sciatica" with expert teacher Doug Keller, will help you understand where your sciatica could be coming from (i.e., what daily habits can lead to or aggravate sciatica as well as where it originates in the body).
Doug will also lead you through practices to stretch and strengthen a key muscle for sciatic pain relief: the piriformis. Also included are two practices you can do regularly: a short piriformis maintenance class (useful for busy days) and a longer, more comprehensive piriformis practice. Use this course to accelerate your healing today!
This workshop is very valuable not only for sufferers of this syndrome but for yoga teachers working with their students. This information is excellent and Doug gives a clear, healthy picture to carry this through all of our asana practice. Thank you Doug and Yoga International for sharing!
This workshop will help you understand and address the source of your sciatica.
