Target the sciatic nerve by creating space in the hips and low back. The sciatic nerve often becomes aggravated when there is compression in the low spine, so with consistent stretching you may begin to experience relief. Always listen to your body and never push through negative sensations in the body. Recommended props: 1 blanket, 1 strap
Very good for my sciatica
this is such a great way to wind down the day!
Very helpful. I felt so much better after this class and will be repeating this on a regular basis.
Very good. Thanks!
My sciatica comes from overstretching my hip by sitting cross-legged all the time. It is a chronic pain and I feel the misalignment in my hips when I run, squat, or practice Yoga. This class was exactly what I needed. I found areas I didn't realize needed stretching.
I'm treating my disc degeneration and herniation. I've been going to physical therapy and pilates. This felt like a great addition to the work I've been doing.
Just amazing. So much relief
Thank you so much for this. I felt safe but felt that I was working my sciatica issue. It was just perfect.
this is awesome to relieve the stress of driving long distances.
I loved this class. My SI joint felt so much better! I miss Dani's classes in person, but this is a great substitute.
After this workout my pain is gone. It's unbelievable how the poses relieve the compression in my hips. <3

this is my daily program and gives me huge relief!thank you
Thank you, Dani. How anout feet and ankles?
My sciatica is a result of the narrowing of the spine. This practice helps to decompress and expand the area where the nerve exits the spine. Dani's instructions are clear and very helpful in aligning the pose to create expansion without pain. Thanks!
I needed this today. Loved the instructor's calming voice.
Danny gives really detailed instructions. All the micro-alignments make a big difference, and help to relieve the sciatica pain.
Sciatica is a nerve that exits from L5 and creates a particular pattern of pain in the low back, buttocks, upper and lower legs. If it is caused from a disc problem, bulging or herniated, stretching on that nerve or pushing more into the bulging disc will aggravate it. If the pain you feel is from tight bound down tissue that is pulling or adhered to nerves, or contracted from NOT being stretched, then gentle stretching is the exact answer. So it is important to know the source of your sciatica or you risk making a disc problem worse with long straight leg hamstring stretches and forward folds with spine flexed. If you don't stand up feeling better after this practice, then stretching your lower back and hips is not the antidote for your pain.
After several challenging hip classes this little break was a great relief!
Really helped my sciatica pain! A
I was able to do more by the second class!
Love you, Dani! xo

After you've been driving for a while, your lower back can start to get achy. Stretch it out and give it a little bit of a massage with this forward fold.
