    Hello, thanks for very well done video… I’d like to ask u if I can do this exercise if I suffer from sciatica…it has been like 2 months since I started to feel slight pain in my left leg…the pain stops just under buttock…I thought that it would go away, but….nothing. could u give me some advice?

    Hello @Zuzuana llkova 🙂 I used to suffer from sciatica before I started contortion, yes this stretch will help you along with doing this, lay on your back and put your foot up on your opposite leg, clasp your hands under the legs that the foot is rested on and slowly hugs it to your chest, hold this for 15-20 seconds, remember to breathe, switch legs and do this 5-10 times on each leg. I hope that made sense 🙂 also do sit and reach, standing pike, butterfly, plow pose, and do some light briges

    Hi do u recommend this to be done at the beginning of a class as part of a warm up stretch ? Also ,my aunty has this problem where she can’t straighten her legs as she walk due to old age. Would this help her?

  • Zuzana Ilkova 7 years ago

    To ritzyflapper… thank you for your advice. I will definitely try it… I did the hamstring stretching yesterday and after I felf much better….was so happy as this pain gives me a lot of discomfort and I cannot properly perform some exercises at my taekwondo course… thanks once again…

    Hi Zuzana, You could do the exercises, but don’t agitate the pain that is already there, my advice with sciatica is usually to be careful with forward bending and keep the knees bend/soft. Also I have a video specifically for sciatica in youtube. On the channel at the bottom of the playlist is a playlist “yoga for backpain” in there you will find the videos. Hope that helps..

    Hi Esther
    I started yoga in my midth 40 almost three years ago, right before I was deeply injured in an accident.
    Now I am recovering from my last (I hope) surgery & need to find my balance again.
    Don’t ask about my poor knees, ellbows & whatelse!
    So much joy to find your great videos.
    Thanks a million for ’em!!
    Btw, it’s so hot in this part of Ol’ Europe. Are there any exercises you would recommend for sweaty, humid days or even exc., which maybe could you cool down a bit?
