As always, Judy Gudmestad is excellent. I have been subscribing to YJ for almost 20 years, but cannot find this article. Which issue is it?


Sounds like classic sciatica pain, most likely from bending from your spine and not your hips. You should really see a doctor if the pain has continued for a long time.

Dana Pottratz

I have been having pain in my right hip, deep within the buttock for over two months. It was set off during a home yoga practice session. I'm not sure, but I think I was doing a seated pose with my legs spread wide and at some point my right hip popped rapidly out of the socket somewhat and then slid right back into place. This hurt a lot, and now triangle pose, lunges and most other standing poses where I bend over have become excruciatingly painful. What should I do?
