Yoga pose for sciatic nerve pain
This yoga pose for sciatic nerve pain is a supportive stretch that softens and rests the muscles in the back of the hips and buttocks. With these muscles at rest, the pressure is taken off the sciatic nerve. Piriformis syndrome and sciatic nerve pain down the leg are thereby relieved.
While practicing this pose, the first chakra—the root chakra—is opened. The ability to ground is increased, thereby banishing fear in the body. Feeling comfortable in the body, feeling worthy of prosperity, and feeling safe and secure enough to let go and relax are developed as this energy balances.
