I agree, now that you are a yoga teacher, you can help my back pain more than my faithful chiropractor and masseur. I will fire them forthwith.
There is nothing I enjoy more at the end of a hard day than watching you master another pose in front of the television, and then being questioned on whether there is any improvement.
