Seated Spinal Twist
This simple, but effective, pose is a go-to for relief of sciatic pain, especially for those new to yoga.
“A simple spinal twist gives the piriformis muscle a mild, gentle stretch guiding it to release and lengthen,” says Visram.
Just don’t force your body into this pose.
“It is important to start slowly and intensify the depth of the twist gradually to avoid discomfort and pain,” says Visram.
