Diagnosed with scoliosis in her late teens, Stasia Siena has had a lifelong interest in holistic health and mind/body wellness. She has been teaching the Alexander Technique – a highly-effective method for improving postural awareness, functional movement, vitality, breathing and overall coordination – for over 20 years. Becoming an Authorized Scolio-Pilates® practitioner has equipped her with additional tools for addressing the specific needs of her individual clients.
She is also a registered yoga teacher, having completed a 200-hour (RYT) certification program in 2016.
Trained as an opera singer, Stasia has a special interest in the mechanisms of breathing and the implications of scoliosis on the respiratory pathways. She specializes in scoliosis and rehabilitative work with performing artists through an adjunct faculty position at Roosevelt University’s College of Performing Arts in Chicago. Whether working with a client one-on-one, or teaching in a large group setting, Stasia draws on her unique educational experiences to help people of all ages find more ease and efficiency of movement in their daily lives.
