Event Details

The scoliotic spine affects not only the bones and muscles, it also affects the nerves. The feedback from the right and left sides of the curves is not the same: one side is contracted and one side is overstretched. In the nervous system, this can create disorientation and a mix of inertia and tension in the scoliotic body, along with a building sense of anxiety, discomfort, and an inability to rest.
In this workshop with Deborah Wolk, acclaimed Yoga for Scoliosis teacher and founder of Samamkaya Yoga Back Care and Scoliosis Collective in New York City, you will learn techniques using prop set ups and other stimuli to allow the nervous system to balance these extremes, practice building your energy with active poses to access numb unused areas, release overused and overstretched muscles—and find a centre place where you can rest.
