"be bold the mighty forces will come to your aid"
Those of us who love our physical yoga practice and that have been practicing for a long time have probably experienced some kind of discomfort or difficulty in the practice. This can be a low-level pain, a painful injury, an inability to physically comprehend an asana or a major setback in an asana that you could once do proficiently. The injury or setback could have come from poor technique but often is from functional problems with the structure of the body. Many of us have utilized chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, osteopathy or other healing modalities to remedy these situations.
