Thanks Dynamic Flow Yoga!
I love it when I go back to a workout and I am better than I was the last time! Such a great feeling. Doing Dynamic Flow Yoga is really strengthening and working my hip and inner thigh after a pinched sciatic nerve left me unable to stand on my own and put me in remedial physical therapy for 3 months! A lot of work to do still on my left hip and inner thigh, but progress is progress, and that is GOOD! HAD to FIGHT to get and keep the lunges on my left leg with proper alignment. Getting better! Take that, sciatic nerve!

What is Sciatica?
For those of you that want more info on Sciatica … this is straight from wikipedia, but I can tell you from experience that this is it.
“Sciatica is a set of symptoms including pain caused by general compression or irritation of one of five spinal nerve roots of each sciatic nerve—or by compression or irritation of the left or right or both sciatic nerves. Symptoms include lower back pain, buttock pain, and pain, numbness or weakness in various parts of the leg and foot. Other symptoms include a “pins and needles” sensation, or tingling and difficulty moving or controlling the leg. Typically, symptoms only manifest on one side of the body. The pain may radiate below the knee, but does not always.
Sciatica is a relatively common form of low back and leg pain, but the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is a set of symptoms rather than a diagnosis for what is irritating the root of the nerve to cause the pain. Treatment for sciatica or sciatic symptoms often differs, depending on underlying causes and pain levels. Causes include compression of the sciatic nerve roots by a herniated (torn) or protruding disc in the lower back.”
