– Is your child considering spinal fusion surgery?
The aim of this series is to provide adolescents who have been diagnosed with scoliosis, positive movement experiences in a supportive environment. Yoga offers both physical and mental benefits. The yoga poses will focus on the fundamentals of working with scoliosis: breath, neutral spine, axial elongation, global expansion, and dynamic alignment. We will address pain patterns and muscular tension specific to each individual’s scoliotic pattern as well as the psychological challenges and social pressures that adolescents face as a result of treatment for scoliosis.
Appropriate for ages 11-17, class size limited to 8, no prior experience with yoga necessary.
