Yoga and Scoliosis
FULL WORKSHOP - future date coming soon!
When: May 6th 1:00 - 3:30
For Yoga Teachers and Students with Scoliosis
Scoliosis can be mysterious and confusing, whether it is in your own body, or when you are looking at someone else.
In this workshop I will provide knowledge about what scoliosis is from a scientific standpoint, and you will learn and practice integrating this into your yoga.
If you are a teacher, this is a wonderful opportunity to understand what you are seeing in your students bodies, and how to better guide them in their practice.
I bring a unique perspective to this topic, as I am advanced certified in the most evidence-based physical therapy methods for scoliosis, Schroth and SEAS,
as well as being a certified,Iyengar yoga teacher.
This will be a fun class!
All levels welcome.
Scoliosis Education Workshop
TBA - Message me if interested!
Many adults have never had a meaningful conversation about their scoliosis.
They don't understand what it is and what they can do for self-care,
so they are often fearful and worried.
Basic education and simple tips can make a big difference!
Common Questions to be Discussed:
What is scoliosis, and why do I have it?
Why is my back shaped this way?
Will I be able to walk when I am older, or will I be bent over no matter what I do?
Is it safe to exercise?
If so, how do I do so without making things worse?
How should I sit and what are good sleep positions?
What are reasonable goals for an adult with scoliosis?
( stabilizing the curve/curves, managing pain, improving daily habits to minimize stress on spine - just a few examples )
This workshop is for adults who would like to know more about their scoliosis
I'll keep the class size small so we can have Q and A and discussions as we go!

A Healthy Back - Education & Care
Date coming soon!
“It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it!”
There is so much information out there on how to have a healthy back
- it can be overwhelming to sort through it all.
I will provide you with basic knowledge and skills to make informed decisions on how to keep your back healthy.
Choosing to follow recipes of back care doesn't work since we are all unique!
The foundation of this workshop will be to provide a base of knowledge on back health and care incorporating yoga.
What you will learn:
• Basic biomechanics and anatomy of the lower back, how it relates to the rest of the body and how it can vary.
• Common body types and movement patterns and how they relate to back health.
• Self care for a healthy pain free back - this will include stretches, exercises, strengthening, relaxation techniques and ergonomics.
• How to keep your back healthy during activities of daily life - including fitness activities and of course Yoga!
As a physical therapist and a yoga teacher, I will approach this topic drawing from both worlds.
Integrating Yoga with Neck, Shoulder and Upper Back Care
Where: Yoga Arts Studio in Point Loma
Registration details coming soon!
Neck, shoulder and upper back discomfort are incredibly common.
Most definitely our modern day lifestyles contribute to this -
along with many other things.
Come learn how to address these concerns with your yoga practice!
Often times a healthy yoga practice or fitness routine, and a relationship with your body can help keep the above in check.
Sometimes your yoga practice or fitness routine itself can become challenging, and can contribute to the problem.
If you have the right tools and understanding of what is happening with your body and mindset, this can be avoided!
In this workshop, you will learn:
