1. There is no "required" sequence of poses -- at most, recommended by a specific teacher. Much healthy diagreement among schools of yoga and among individual teachers about sequencing.
2. A relationship with a teacher is very important in yoga -- if you don't already have a teacher, seek out a local qualified teacher and sign up for a class. Go early, and explain your issue and ask for advice. S/he may be able to address it during the class; if not, ask if you can sign up for a private session. If you do a private, you will come away with a lot more than an answer to your rib pain issue, I feel sure!
Blessings to you... om shante
