Discover all the ways Yoga can be used to meet the challenges of scoliosis. This workshop is based on techniques learned by studying with senior internationally acclaimed Iyengar instructor Elise Browning Miller which includes

  • Anatomy of the Spine and the Types of Scoliosis Curves

  • Assessment of the spine and identification of compensatory mechanisms seen in clients with scoliosis

  • Optimal yoga postures for scoliosis and ways of adapting postures for each person’s individual needs

  • Emphasis on yoga poses that lengthen the spine, de-rotate the curve, improve breath awareness and strengthen the spine

  • The psychological consequences of scoliosis

  • Adjustments and props

Through a variety of yoga practices and poses, people with scoliosis can develop greater structural alignment, become more symmetrical, and find the balance point that allows the scoliosis curve to coexist with gravity. Students learn practices to improve posture and increase flexibility and strength. Health care practitioners and yoga teachers leave with the necessary skills and confidence to offer a beginning yoga practice to those with scolio
