Leg pain: You MAY have hurt yourself doing yoga. Please start w/seeing your doctor. He/she MAY suggest physical therapy. You need to make sure you are not currently doing some type of exercise that continues to irritate whatever may have been done. Turmeric is a good natural anti-inflammatory after you know what you are dealing with. Peace and good health.

Stop Yoga: Depends on what you do exactly in Yoga. Some of the Exercises are not for every one,.Some put a lot of stress on the lower back. Please check with your doctor. Meanwhile you can hang from a pull up bar for 10 second twice a day and do crunches and do not bend to do things, until you are cleared by your doctor.
