Elise presents her internationally acclaimed workshop on working with scoliosis. By combining the yoga postures with breathing awareness, one can develop a structural alignment, creating a more normal symmetrical alignment. Through yoga, one can find the balance point that allows the scoliosis curve to coexist with gravity and activates the body’s natural line.
Elise will do a quick review of the basics from Yoga for Scoliosis Part I on Friday night. The workshop emphasis will be on beginning and more advanced standing poses, back strengtheners and backbends, inversions and twists. Adjustments and props including wall ropes will be used to assist participants to work with their own scoliosis.
