Feedback from your colleagues about the Scolio-Pilates webinars:
“Hi Karena I hope this finds you very well. I’m just writing to thank you for your wonderful teleseminar on Friday, living in N.Ireland and in a fairly rural area, attending workshops can prove costly both in time and money so I was totally delighted that you decided to share this superb workshop via the web.
It was just lovely to sit back on my sofa, not weary from traveling or worrying about making my flight back and best of all being able to enjoy the information without frantically trying to take notes knowing that I can access this information whenever I need to review it!
I shall pass on the details of your next webinar to my instructor friends as I know they will be as appreciative as I am to have the opportunity to learn from such an accomplished and experienced teacher.
Thank you so much again and you can count me in for sure for the rest of the programme – that said hopefully one day I will make it over to the US and attend some of your workshops. I’m so looking forward to getting into my studio tomorrow and sharing this new information and exercises with my clients.Register for all webinars HERE!
Well done Karena”– Pamela F, Northern Ireland

ScolioPilates Webinar Part III: Use ScolioWedges to Correct in 3 Dimensions
This webinar was recorded on January 12, 2013. The ScolioWedges help to move the spine in all three planes towards a more neutral spine. A more neutral position allows the muscles supporting the spine to strengthen in a position that will support a straighter spine as opposed to supporting the alignment of the scoliosis.
