I got introduced to Yoga because I was in pain and conventional western medicine could not help me, even Cortisone injections did not do it anymore. School medicine confused and scared the hell out of me, then I got a blood test from two different doctors that diagnosed that I have Scoliosis, a rheumatic disease.
One Doctor was a specialist in the genre and got an autographed poster from me for her son! She also ‘needed’ (read: wanted) me to be living case study, she wanted me as a project and to scan my back every three months to show it getting worse!>>
