Yoga for sport: To relieve back pain and sciatica.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in the human body. Its position is from the beginning of the lumbar spine to the feet. It is a mixed nerve, as it carries both sensory and motor information. For those athletes who suffer from sciatica or any discomfort in the back as a result of their sport, they may feel so much pain that they are unable to perform any movement. This is not always the case, but yoga can help you reduce and prevent them and continue with your routine. In this routine, Tamara Suárez proposes a series of postures to keep you active, recover elasticity and become aware of your body to help relieve the tensions that lead to sciatica pain.
