Yoga on a Curve: A Workshop for Scoliosis

Yoga on a Curve with Angela Clarkwith angela clark, E-RYT
saturday, march 16
space limited to 10

The practice of yoga is well-known for bestowing the benefits of balance to body, breath, and mind. These benefits are doubly important when a practitioner is working with scoliosis.

This is not a flow class. Instead, through the practice of yoga asana, a healthier understanding of and relationship with your spinal curvature will be facilitated. We use props to support the “frame” of the body to achieve a feeling of balance, both in the physical body and the breath body. Through mindful practice with your curve – instead of against it – new length emerges in the spine and weaker muscles in the trunk are strengthened.

Whether you are familiar with your scoliosis or not, you will learn what happens to the body in the curves and how better to adjust yourself when you are practicing any style of yoga in anyone’s class.

Yoga teachers can gain continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance and apply these hours to Mala Yoga’s 200 hour Teacher Training.
