Come and learn to understand your own back and how to use yoga to develop a better structural and symmetrical alignment. Whether you have a mild imbalance/condition in the back or major curves from scoliosis, this series will help you develop better body awareness and improved alignment and balance, while helping to reduce pain/discomfort. We will focus on various aspects of yoga to lengthen the spine, strengthen weak areas, and stretch muscles that have tightened. Those with scoliosis will learn specific ways to work with their individual curve patterns using various yoga postures. We will also use breathing techniques to help connect the mind and body, and restorative/relaxation poses to help quiet the mind and relax the body.
Dress in comfortable clothing, preferably something form-fitting in order to assess and work with the back during yoga practice.
No yoga experience necessary. Please pre-register.
