Rowena Brown wakes with a start, bracing herself for the wave of pain created by severe carpal tunnel and debilitating fibromyalgia that had stolen her sleep for years. But the pain doesn’t come. She shakes her head, amazed, again, at the pain's absence. After years of ineffective treatments, it took only six months of Bikram yoga to free her body from the shackles of her disabling ailments.
