Yoga for Scoliosis Introductory Day
Understand how to teach and practise yoga for scoliosis, exploring how the therapeutic effects of yoga can be applied specifically to structural / functional imbalances.
Can yoga improve the condition of scoliosis? How does one practice yoga with scoliosis? Does it help, and yield sustainable long term results? What about the frustration, depletion, self-consciousness, disharmony that one can experience? As someone with scoliosis,these are some of the questions Adelene had and would like to share with you in this one day workshop open to teachers and practitioners alike.
With open discussions held within a safe sharing environment, Adelene will share her journey and experience. We will learn and understand practising with scoliosis, explore how the therapeutic effects of yoga can be applied specifically to structural / functional imbalances. This non-invasive approach to the condition could potentially help to alleviate physical discomfort, recalibrate and re-map postural alignment, re-establish and refine balance, release emotional psychological tension on practising and living with scoliosis.
The intention of this workshop is to offer insights into the spinal health of those with scoliosis, as well as modified practices to improve the symptoms of scoliosis and restorative postures to balance and rejuvenate. Through years of training, research, teaching, self-study and dedicated practice, Adelene has successfully helped herself and many others reclaim freedom (physically, emotionally and mentally), hope and empowerment within themselves.
_Please note that this workshop counts towards elective hours on the Yoga Therapy Diploma
What our students say
I found this workshop profoundly useful both for my own practice and as a teacher to help my students with scoliosis in both regular and pregnancy yoga classes. Many practical tools and a better understanding of how to adapt practice to create space and ease. Kate Hayes on Yoga for Scoliosis Introductory Day, January 2017
