Yoga for Scoliosis & Teacher Training – Part 1 is designed to present information and experience in the ways Iyengar Yoga can be used to meet the challenges of scoliosis. At the lecture portion on Friday evening, Elise will offer a lecture/presentation on scoliosis, an assessment on each individual participants’ spinal curve, and a discussion of cause and effect as well as the psychological consequences of scoliosis. In the workshop portion, participants will learn optimal yoga postures for scoliosis as well as how to adapt specific yoga postures to their scoliosis. By combining the yoga postures with breathing awareness, one can develop more structural alignment of the body and find the balance point that allows the scoliosis curve to coexist with gravity and the body’s natural line.
This workshop is appropriate for anyone with scoliosis whether he/she is currently a yoga student or not. Teachers are urged to attend in order to be more skillful when assisting their students with scoliosis. For teachers who are interested in becoming certified as a “Yoga for Scoliosis” Trainer, The Yoga for Scoliosis “Part 1” workshop fulfills the first 10 hours of the 20 hours required to get started on the Elise Browning Miller “Yoga for Scoliosis” Training program.
