Session Description:

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg.

This session will present how to elongate the spine and how to lengthen and soften the column of muscles that supports the spine through basic asana with modifications to accommodate the healing process and alleviate pain.  Participants will learn to recognize how the asanas relate to postural alignment and activities of daily living and ways to prevent recurrence of sciatica.
