Scoliosis is confusing. It creates imbalances in the body that can lead to pain and discomfort. Join us as we learn more about our own patterns of scoliosis and explore how to modify yoga postures and other movements for our individual needs. The first part of the workshop will be an overview of the anatomy and physiology of scoliosis. We will then use biomechanical and neurological-based movement techniques to explore how to create more balance and ease in our bodies while building strength and flexibility.
This will be an interactive class where we will learn from each other about our own habits and patterns. We will discuss modifications that can be brought into other yoga classes as well as specific practices to do at home.
No yoga experience required.
Sandra Razieli’s deep exploration of movement began when she was searching for ways to reduce pain associated with scoliosis. She found that the precision and awareness of an Iyengar-based yoga practice helped ease her pain and better understand the various imbalances created by scoliosis. She believes that focusing on alignment-based movement is a particularly powerful practice for those with scoliosis because it is a means by which one can take an active role in self-care.
Sandra has been teaching yoga since 2000 and is certified by Elise Miller as a Yoga for Scoliosis Trainer. Her work with scoliosis incorporates numerous movement techniques, including the Schroth Method, Scolio-Pilates and Z-Health.
