Scolio-Pilates: An Introduction to Scoliosis Exercise

As movement professionals, there are two primary questions that surround scoliosis: What is safe? What is effective?

In this course, we focus on contraindications for scoliosis within a scoliosis-specific exercise program and discuss what is safe outside of a scoliosis-specific program. Together, we will explore how to close the chain in an elongation exercise to provide stability and length simultaneously. You will have new exercises to take home to your clients and a new principle of understanding so you can continue to create closed-chain elongation exercises on your own. After experiencing and applying the movement, we will re-group as a class to discuss the scientific literature that supports this work.


(Saturday) 7:30 am - 12:30 pm
