Fire Log Pose
If you’re looking for a deep hip stretch that also eases sciatic pain, fire log pose is your friend.
“If the piriformis muscle (a deep hip muscle) is tight, it exerts pressure on the sciatic nerve causing sharp, radiating pain,” says Visram.
That’s where fire log pose come in. It’s a sciatica stretch that helps to release the piriformis muscle, offering some much-needed relief for tight hips and sciatic pain.
To make the pose more effective, make sure your form is correct.
“The trick is to fold forward from your hips rather than round forward from your belly,” says Visram.
