Hello everyone. Welcome to yoga with Adriene. I’m Adriene, and today’s practice is yoga for Sciatica or for lower back pain, nerve pain. This is a really great practie for anyone who has dealt with any flare ups in the lower back body. Perhaps you’re recovering from an injury, and you’re needing to ease back into things.
Be really mindful. If you are in pain now, you might need to ask your or you might need to check in and just make sure you’re doing the right exercise, but this is a really yummy practice that’s going to balance strengthening and stretching in a really kind and loving way. So, for today’s practice, you’re gonna need a towel,.
A little towel if you have it. If you have a yoga strap, awesome, or if you have a tie, you can use that as well. Just something about yay long that will help you find length. Alright, so hop into something comfy. Grab your towel or your strap or your tie, and let’s get started.
(lively, bouncy strumming music) Alright, the first thing we’re gonna do is going to be a supine on our backs, and you’re gonna need your towel or your strap or your tie, whatever you got. So, put it right to your side so you can grab it easily, and then bend the knees, use your hands to slowly roll down to your back.
Get situated here. Connect with your breath. Knees are up towards the sky. Feet are on the mat. And take a second to bring the hands to the belly or right to the hip points here, and just notice what’s going on in the lower back. If there’s a space, if you can crawl your hand.
Between the lower back, see if you can make an adjustment to bring your lower back flush with the mat. And if you have to adjust your feet, please do. So the lower back is now pressing against the mat and since we’re here to practice and go the extra mile, self love and care, take a moment to close your eyes,.
And deepen your breath. And then we’re gonna start with this really, really fancy yoga move that a friend of mine taught me the other day, reminded me of it in class. And it’s where you take the two corners of your mouth and gently lift them up towards your eyes or your ears. So chances are if you’re doing this tutorial, you’re tending to a little back pain.
