I think all of us have, at one time or another, suffered pain in the sciatic nerve. This is the large nerve fiber that runs from your lower back, through the buttocks to the lower limbs. There are yoga poses that can stretch and expand these nerves to relieve pain and numbness. Try the pigeon pose, or if your knee does not like that pose, do the relaxed variation on your back.
Other poses to try to stretch those areas are the half-moon pose, the lizard and the locust.
