Pain When Stretching

Sometimes lately when I stretch my left leg, I feel a pain going down the whole leg. It feels like when you hit a wrong nerve.

 

Would appreciate if it someone could tell me what it is caused by and how should I prevent it. Thank you.

That sounds like a hamstring. All that can be done is to make sure that the legs are well-warmed-up and as flexible as possible before stretching. What are you doing and when does this symptom appear? Before class? After? Instead of?

OK!:) There it is. Just modify your pre-class stretches to the gentler ones, and relegate the ones that provide the pain to the post-class "warm-down" - I think you'll find that the pain will be gone!:)
