A long-time yoga practitioner and instructor, I have had my first (and I hope only) bout of sciatica. I feel so fortunate to have found this very helpful video, and new-for-me website. This class takes takes supta padungustasana variations to an even more therapeutic level. Thank you so much for offering it!

I'm suffering from sciatica for the first time. This really helped! A few parts were really uncomfortable which is understandable but I pushed through and wow- it really gave me relief.

This will be part of my daily routine.

Thank you for the wonderful class, David. I want to download it; is a small computer considered large screen? (Maybe those are two different formats and one doesn't work in both devices)
Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hi Teresa.
Thanks for the kind words. It actually depends... the mobile version will work on a computer screen but it may seem a bit pixelated if the screen is fairly large. The HD is your best bet if you want the video to be sharp.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Take care,

I love this class and always feel very energized when It's completed. One thing I notice is with my left leg, from a previous hamstring injury, is that I feel tingling on the outer aspect of left leg. Particularily when I bring straight upper leg across lower right leg. I don't over emphasise the stretch but I can feel tingling. Should I avoid it all together?

Thanks for the feedback! No, you don't need to avoid it all together, but you do want to be careful not to hold the stretch for too long or move it deep enough that you feel pinching or burning. Sometimes tingling is a necessary part of releasing really tight muscles.

Thank you for the relief and precise instruction?
If there is ANY burning, I should move out of the stretch? How can I determine what pains are safe and unsafe?

This class was a blessing. Thank you, David, for always explaining the stretches in great detail. I look forward to repeating this class frequently. Namaste.
