Elise Miller: Yoga for Scoliosis, Part II


October 6-8, 2017

Elise presents her internationally-acclaimed workshop on working with scoliosis. By combining the yoga postures with breathing awareness, one can develop a structural alignment, creating a more normal symmetrical alignment. Through yoga, one can find the balance point that allows the scoliosis curve to coexist with gravity and activates the body’s natural line.

Full Weekend $320

*****The workshop is almost full. Please contact graham@iyengarraleigh.com to see if there is any space first before registering by credit card or check.*****

Elise will do a quick review of the basics from Part I Friday night. The workshop emphasis will be on beginning and more advanced standing poses, back strengtheners and back bends, inversions and twists. Adjustments and props including wall ropes will be used to assist participants to work with their own scoliosis.

Who the Workshop is appropriate for?
Students and teachers who have completed the 10-hour Yoga for Scoliosis Part I, or have at least 6 months of training with Elise Browning Miller’s Yoga for Scoliosis DVD, or if you are a continuing student of Iyengar yoga, or have been instructed by one of Elise Miller’s Yoga for Scoliosis Trainers and have an understanding of how to address your scoliosis, you may also attend. Teachers of all levels and systems are welcome and are invited to bring their continuing students with scoliosis so that both will have the opportunity to work together under Elise’s guidance.

If you have not taken Part 1, then you need to attend Friday night before attending Saturday and/or Sunday.

Teachers who are interested in getting certified as a Yoga for Scoliosis Trainer

If you’re not interested in getting certified at this time and have participated in Part I, you’re also encouraged to join us in Part II to learn more poses to address the needs of your students with scoliosis.
