Over the past 3-10 years, I have fixed my own problems with health. I have recovered from my endometriosis pain, that was the main thing that made me start this website. I have been released from my 20 years of headaches and migraines. I don´t have IBS any more. I have been able to manage my anxiety. I have recovered from a major burn out. So now the turn has come to deal with my lower back problem. I´ve had this pain for a couple of years. It got worse last summer when I was picking blueberries. I have noticed that yoga of course helps a lot, but I haven´t found the right yoga program - yet. Or maybe I have! Right now
I´m trying a yoga program that seems to help. So I want to share some of my favorite yoga poses from that program.
There are many things you can do to ease the pain in the lower back, so it can be that you need change some things in your life to get better from your pain (as with many health issues). Like posture, exercises, stretching& strengthening muscles.
The "funny" thing is, that many of my offline yoga students also have problem with the lower back, and many women exactly in the same spot as I have. It´s in the lower back, in the buttock, probably has to do with the muscle "piriformis" and sciatic nerve. So in the yoga courses that starts offline next year it´s going to be a lot about the spine. Together we will get rid of our back pain!
So try the three yoga poses below! The good thing with these yoga poses are that they also help with your pelvis, at least the first and second pose!

I remember the first time I did this meditation, probably 8 years ago or so. I was taking a yoga course at my yoga teacher´s yoga studio and this class was about the aura. The yoga set ended with this beautiful meditation. I remember how wonderful I felt afterwords.
I have talked about the aura in some other blog posts and have also posted a video with a yoga pose that strengthens the aura. (You find them below)
In the yogic tradition the aura is important. It is the electromagnetic field that is around you. It helps to filter the negative energy, so it doesn´t reach you and you don´t get affected by negative people around you for example. It also helps to strengthen your immune system.
This meditation is not only for the aura, it is also for self love. You repeat affirmations that both helps to strengthen your aura and self love. I like to use visualization in this meditation. You can try it too if you want to. I describe it in the instructions below.
This is how you do the meditation
Sit in easy pose or on a chair. Keep your spine straight and pull in the chin so you get the straight line from the spine up to the neck. Close your eyes, place your hands on the knees in gyan mudra (tip of the index finger touches the tip of the thumb, palms facing up). Relax your shoulders.
Notice the flow of energy and that it is expanding around you while you are listening to these affirmations.
I´m full of light (you can imagine the light)
I´m shimmering (imagine that your aura is shimmering around you)
Repeat the sequence six times
Sit in this pose and breathe long and deeply for a couple of minutes.
I´d love to hear how you feel about this meditation! Share your comments below!
