Yoga with Scoliosis: 5-week class series with Teresa Heit-Murray

Next held on Thursday, May 4, 2023 at 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm

This enrollment runs May 4, 11, 25, June 1, 8 (no class May 18 )

This 5-week specialty class series is designed for students with scoliosis, a diagnosed asymmetrical lateral curvature(s) of the spine and rotation. Working with intention, students will learn how to adjust yoga poses for their specific curves. Practicing yoga for scoliosis can build strength, knowledge and potential pain relief, as well as build confidence and understanding. Alignment-based yoga positions, anatomy, breathwork, relaxation, somatic myofascial release, strength and stability will all be included in this series. Students will be led into poses to strengthen the spine and support areas of the body for healthy posture. We will work to reduce compensatory patterns while standing, sitting and lying down. Presentation of the latest science and thinking relevant to scoliosis, how the brain works, and current yoga teaching around scoliosis will be included along with yoga practice. Creating community and support for each other is another key component.

All levels are welcome, from new yoga students to teachers.

Note: Students are encouraged to bring a copy of their scoliosis x-ray to accurately confirm their scoliosis curve location and direction. Information session for first time students on April 27 will focus on understanding individual unique spinal curves with scoliosis and a presentation of more information about scoliosis. This is key to practicing yoga with scoliosis.
