Sciatica refers to back and leg pain and numbness caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. When something injures or puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain in the lower back that spreads to the hip, buttocks, and leg.
In this workshop we will start with some basic anatomy to introduce you to the sciatic nerve, and how it functions. We will then do gentle stretching and asana (exercises) which can be done daily to open and relieve the pain and numbness.
All levels are welcome!
