Yoga for Scoliosis with Melissa Watkins, 15 October
Sunday, 15 October
Do you have scoliosis but have been told by doctors that there’s nothing you can do about it? I disagree!
Scoliosis is a lateral curve of the spine, which can be mild or severe, sometimes requiring medical interventions such as bracing or surgery. Most often those with scoliosis are encouraged to swim or stay fit, but are not advised to do anything specific for their scoliosis.
It is empowering to learn and understand more about your beautiful, special body and that you can do something to manage discomfort and pain, and even improve your posture. In some cases you can even improve the degree of curvature. The key is to learn how to work with the unique physicality of a body with scoliosis.
Yoga for Scoliosis is one of the only practices that addresses the curves specifically. In this two hour workshop you will learn:
• unique exercises and positions for each curve type
• exercises to help improve posture
• positions to ease pain
• strategies for lifetime scoliosis management
