Yin Yoga: Sciatica Relief
Kate Smith

Watch this Practice
I hear ya, Tracy C !!! I did a happy baby yesterday that felt the same!! It's so "painful" (maybe it sounds better to say uncomfortable ;) and yet when I take the time to do it, I feel SO MUCH BETTER after just a few minutes. If the tension is there, I am grateful to have a way to endure and RELEASE it.... Thanks for practicing with me. Love love and more LOVE coming your way...

These are great tools for sciatica, which has been barking this week for the first time in months. Towards the end I definitely eased some of my lower back tightness, but the whole time was enjoyable and dug the three-pronged mantra. Your leg drop to the floor during half-happy baby is inspiring (would be nice to have the ground support me in that pose).

Enjoyed hearing that this was a helpful practice for a sciatica flare-up, David Goldstein :) In regards to the leg drop, I appreciated this feedback because it made me realize I was missing the gratitude for the fact that my leg can drop like that. I was taking it for granted....not any more thanks to you, David!! You could possibly use a bolster or a stack of pillows/blankets to support your leg and be your "floor"support.... worth a shot to try...  Grateful for your comment. I send LOVE in your direction

Hi Kate,
Thank you so much for this wonderful practice - I had my first real sciatica attack - shocking how painful it is - something Ive heard of for years but never experienced. I had to   go to doc - for the first time in about twenty years and received an injection in the glut which certainly helped . It relieved the pain so much that I was able to do this session yesterday and am about to repeat it as it just felt so wonderful! It´s such a relief to know there are tools at hand!
Thank you again!
have a wonderful day
Woohoo! Michelle F, this has made my day... !! Sounds like you are tackling the issue wisely - get the shot to relieve the pain and then get back to "work" healing with yoga. I'm inspired by your efforts! Sending you much love and healing vibes.

So glad the yoga is working....I'm always so impressed and re-inspired when I become patient enough with my body to ALLOW the yoga to work. Love love love....Happy to know your low back is feeling the LOVE!

Oh wow, two day in and I’m already finding back and hip relief. Grateful blessings to you for this practice. Tears of joy!
P Janine K I am SO glad to hear this! I have been out of town staying at a house with no internet so my apologies for the delayed response!  I did a great deal of research before I "created" this series -- both by asking professional bodyworker friends and also by practicing over and over again with my own body. Recently, I had a hip issue come up due to a mishap and I turned back to these poses myself. After months repetition with these poses, I am pain free again! Woohoo!

I am genuinely grateful to know that this practice worked for you. Brings true joy to my heart. I send you love love and more LOVE! Keep up the good work with your amazing body!
