Yoga for Scoliosis

Elise Browning MillerIn August this year, the Center for Yoga in Los Angeles will be offering an important yoga workshop for individuals who are living with scoliosis, a condition that causes an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine.

This internationally acclaimed workshop will be presented by Elise Browning Miller, an experienced Iyengar yoga instructor who is recognized as a leader in developing adapted yoga practices for scoliosis, lower/upper back problems, and sports related injuries.

Through her experience of managing her own scoliosis, Elise has come to understand the advantages of a yoga practice that offers solutions for proper balance and posture. The workshop is “designed to present information and experience in the ways Iyengar Yoga can be used to meet the challenges of scoliosis.”

In addition to presenting the workshop, Elise has developed an instructional DVD, Yoga for Scoliosis, that offers guided steps for improving the health of an individual’s spine. The DVD includes yoga poses to “lengthen the spine” and help relieve overworked muscles that may add to back stresses.

The workshop at the Center for Yoga will take place from August 15 to August 17, with prices ranging from $60-$90 per session. There is a discounted rate of $225 being offered for individuals who participate in the full weekend.
