Yoga for Scoliosis and Spine Assessment Workshop
Sunday Sep. 15 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm| $60
Early Bird Rate: $55 ($60 after September 8, 2019)
This workshop is designed for students with Scoliosis (a lateral curvature(s) of the spine) and for Yoga Teachers who want to learn about scoliosis. We will assess your spine’s curvature, map the curve, then apply what we learned to classic yoga poses adjusted for your specific curve pattern. Both students and teachers will benefit from learning how to adjust for the curvature in various poses.
Yoga poses offer relief with the use of traction, props, and relaxation to alleviate pain and discomfort. The focus of this workshop is on lengthening the spine, de-rotation of the curve, and reducing compensatory patterns standing, sitting, and lying down. In addition, deepening the breath will be a major component during the session.
All levels are welcome, from newbie to teacher.
