Level 2: Yoga for Scoliosis
Designed for the experienced yoga practitioner, this 60 min practice includes more advanced breathing techniques and asanas to promote greater core stability in the safest alignment possible for the person with scoliosis. This video includes a 10 min presentation on the science and mechanics of scoliosis. The focus of this presentation is to understand what movements in yoga and exercise are safer to do, what is less safe, and how to modify. Meredith teaches why we are doing some movements and why we are not doing others so that you can apply these principles of movement to your other exercise endeavors. . Recommended equipment is a 1/4” yoga mat on a firm surface. If you are practicing on carpet, no mat is required.
