talk to your doctor and ask them if you're healthy enough to do yoga. My yoga instructor has scaitica. about half the students in a class I've taken have problems with sciatica. they've all told me the same thing i.e. that yoga has helped them manage their sciatic pain.
Have you ever taken yoga ? If you've never taken yoga, do NOT do a DVD. some poses can help and some can hurt. That's why it's important that you take a class with an instructor who understands how to teach a person with sciatica. a good instructor can teach you pose modification.
I would consider taking a good yoga class, but once again, with doctor's approval.
