Baron Baptiste senior certified yoga instructor. I started having pain on the right side of my lower back; I lived with the pain for a few weeks, which was not fun. I've never had back pain previously, but I quickly learned that back pain is highly inconvenient. I just happened to mention to my husband's sister that my back was hurting; she asked me to describe the pain. Instantly, she said she knew what was wrong with my back; she says it happens to some of her students. Some bone is out of place and rubbing against a muscle. She showed me a yoga position that will slip the bone back into place. I did the pose and instantly the pain went away. It was voodoo magic. The pain vanished.
I'm so glad I married into a family with a knowledgeable yoga master!
