You're going to start the stretch byholding onto a wall or stable surface and slowly cross your right or leftleg over your other leg and slowly bend your knees and shift yourweight towards the back of your hips you should feel stretch deep in yourgluts
and this is where your piriformis muscle and sciatic nerve run. uh. hold for fifteen thirty secondsnow runners know this stretch as a figure 4 stretch because you'reactually making a 4 with your body. You should feel a difference between your affected side and unaffected side meaning that you're affected side will betighter and will benefit from holding thestretch longer than the unaffected side. It's a good idea to compare your two sides because it will give you a good indication of
the improvement of your affected leg After fifteenthirty secondsrepeat the same steps on the other leg. For a deeper stretch you can drive your hips back and or use your freehand and push awayyour knee even though one side feels tighter in a few days or weeks you should noticea difference not only in the flexibility
but also the pain you're experiencing as you become more flexible, the painwill start to subside continue to stretch most days of the week, if not everyday Thanks for watching. I hope this tutorialtutorial was informative and helpful.
Yoga Twist Workout for Back Pain Sciatica Relief How To Do Half Spinal Yoga Twists
Hi, I'm Manish Pole and this is Neetu Singh,we are part of Total Yoga. In this series of Yoga House tutorials we are looking at Desktop Yoga and specifically what can be done for the back to counter the effects of sitting atthe desk for very long. Sit cross legged and holding your knee and the armrest turn aroundand look at the back. Breathing is normal. After 15 seconds come back to center and crossyour leg the other way, lock your elbow, twist and look at the back. Stretch as much as iscomfortable for you. Remember that you are are twisting, and don't turn the chair and thinkthat you are twisting, and say that you body are twisting. For the standing stretch, seethat one hand is on the opposite shoulder
and holding the hip start to twist the back.Even a simple movement like this goes a long way in ensuring that your central nervoussystem functions optimally. Change to the other side. Ensure that there is no stiffnessin the back, especially if you are sitting 78 hours at your work station. See to itthat the back is kept flexed. So in this tutorial we saw what could be done in terms of spinaltwisting. Most people would start working sitting like this and as the day proceedsthey will then end up working on their desktop or laptop like this which means over a courseof few years gets extremely unfit. So we've seen what we could do with twisting of thespine. In the next tutorial we are going to look
at how we can give the other range of motionto the spine. Keep watching Yoga House tutorials. This is Manish and Neetu from Total Yoga signingoff. Subscribe to Yoga House Channel.
