Yoga for Scoliosis

Did you realize that certain yoga poses can have significant benefits for people with scoliosis? Do you know which parts of your back need more strengthening, and which need more stretching, to help balance out your muscles and connective tissues? Do you know how to modify common yoga poses so they help compensate for, rather than exaggerate, the asymmetries of your spine? Come learn all of these things and more in this carefully designed workshop. If you don’t already know what type of curve(s) you have, where they're located, and which direction(s) they go, it would be helpful to find that out before the workshop so we can accurately tailor the poses for you. (If not, you'll just need to do some research afterward to make sure our guesses were correct). Class size is limited to allow for individual attention, so sign up early!
