Mothers suffering from nerve pain in the legs and buttocks, or sciatica, can find some relief with the Extended Side Angle / Utthita Parvaskonasana pose. The positioning of this pose broadens the hips and pelvis and promotes strength in the legs and back, both of which can help relieve discomfort of sciatica.
