Yoga Therapy for Scoliosis with Dr Alison McLean

Saturday, January 18, 2020

A workshop to create space and balance
With Alison Mclean DPT, ERYT, C-IAYT

We will bring symmetry to the curvature of the spine by lengthening restricted areas, strengthening weakened ones, as well as utilizing traction techniques to bring space to the whole spine to reduce pain and discomfort.

Using a unique series of asana (yoga postures) combined with therapeutic techniques to reduce stress and tension and calm the nervous system, you will learn and experience new ways to create length and space in your body you can then replicate at home. We will focus on normalizing the curvature of the spine and opening up the tight or restricted side, and strengthen the overstretched side that can contribute to soreness and dysfunction.

You should attend if:

  • You know you have scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, arthritis or chronic tension in your back
  • You would like to create space in your spine, relieve compression and energize your nervous system
  • You want to bring balance to your body side to side even if you don’t have scoliosis
