Pinched nerve in left hip. On pain meds. Not sure how to resume yoga. The actual trigger was during a session on weights I had done before w/o problem. Thinking of Tai chi as an alternative.

Problem has been resolved, I modified my weight training by eliminating the position that caused the problem.

Sometimes, the very best idea is to lay off completely for some weeks and let the body heal without putting pressure on it. I love watching Grokker's cooking videos to zone out, but very many people enjoy Grokker's meditation videos or other videos in the "mind" category. Here is a collection of videos that might put you on an unexpected journey while you might ease off your hip:
Breathing, Meditation, Pep Talks: Good luck! :)
