Namaskar Don,

It is good to touch base with you again. Although, it would be much better without pain in the hips. Jeann gave some solid advice. An X-ray or an MRI would leave much of my speculation aside.

This is not common, but I have heard of this before. Your Yoga practice may have tipped you off to some premature hip wear. This could be the result of sports you played, work, daily activities, or genetics.

Unless, you have been pushing it, Yoga is not be the culprit. You are a sensible person, and a very good Yoga teacher, so I doubt you are pushing your limits to full skeletal compression.

You and I are in the same age bracket. Unfortunately, our parts are just starting to wear. I have a similar problem with my knees. Recently, Lotus posture causes long-term pain in the knees. My knees have been a problem for over 20 years now, but Yoga has always helped me deal with the pain.

If you modify your asanas or your asana sequence around this problem, you may get some relief. Joints do not forgive us well and take months or more to recover.

The bottom line is, see your doctor for a precise diagnosis.

Please let us know how you do.
