Sciatica & Piriformis Syndrome Release Workshop

 Saturday May 18th  10AM - 1:00PM EDT


The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body running from the base of the spinal cord to the feet.

Pain from sciatica and piriformis syndrome can take many forms including low back pain, pain in the butt, radiating pain down the leg and in severe cases, numbness of the foot.

This workshop covers the anatomy and function of the sciatic nerve and piriformis muscles and includes a series of therapeutic exercises designed to relieve pain and provide you with tools going forward.

You will get a recording of the workshop along with a pdf of the slideshow presentation and an eBook of the exercises.

Additionally, there will be a follow up Q & A on Sunday May 19th @ 10AM where you can ask any questions you want .

The Sciatic nerve

The sciatic nerve is the longest, widest single nerve in the body. At its largest point, it’s as big around as your index finger.

Take a moment to look at your index finger.

It’s pretty incredible to have a nerve this large moving through us.

It deserves respect.

The sciatic nerve actually forms in the butt in front of the piriformis muscle. The sciatic nerve originates at the base of the spinal cord as five nerve roots that make there way through the pelvis meeting at the piriformis and forming the sciatic nerve.

Which is actually two nerves, the tibial and peroneal, that are wrapped in the sciatic sheath.

This workshop will cover all of this and more and the exercises will leave you feeling free and easy in your hips and pelvis...

I came across the BodyMind webinar while recovering from back surgery and because walking was the only activity I was allowed to do, I signed on and was immediately smitten with Jonathan FitzGordon’s style of presentation, open-mindedness to both anecdotal and scientific data, diagrams of anatomy not usually found in anatomy books, and discussions of books concerning Anatomy or Yoga both current and past. All of this has helped me. This concludes my specular take on Core Walking BodyMind

His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious.

Jonathan is a refreshingly wry teacher whose classes are both precise and exploratory. His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious. I always learn new ways to engage my body, and I typically enjoy surprising soreness a day or so later. I've watched countless students transform their practice under his guidance, and regularly recommend his classes for anyone looking to strengthen and balance their body using an intelligent and light-hearted approach.

His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious.

My initial introduction to Jonathan’s work came during a web search because of trouble with sciatica pain in my left lower leg.The doctors had recommended steroid shots and possibly surgery! CoreWalking promised relief and I was willing to listen to more. After a year of working with Jonathan I am without pain, more aware of my walking posture and engaged in his live yoga classes as often as possible. Following the MindBody webinars over the past year has given me extensive information and valuable insight as to how the body functions. I appreciated the special guests and Jonathan’s unique ability to make all the brilliant information “user friendly”.
