How to warm up and stretch the piriformis – It’s Yoga

Here’s a little yoga nugget from our Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care class. Sequence to warm up and create circulation in the piriformis muscle, then to S-T-R-E-T-C-H (stretch) that muscle out!

Some primary goals in doing yoga is to:

  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Increase circulation
  • Increase range of motion
  • Release chronic contraction
  • Increase strength of muscles around joints
  • Identify dysfunctional movement patterns and create functional movement patterns.

Enjoy this little sequence!
