This is what we like most and what we recommend if it is possible. I know that California is not always easy to get to, but if you can make it, we find that working in-person is the most effective. We’d like to meet you one-on-one and Karena likes to be able to spend an extended amount of time with you to perfect your home program. These in-person programs are generally 4-10 days in length. You will meet with Karena up to 3 hours a day. A typical session is two hours in the morning with a 2-hour break for lunch and then a 1-hour session after lunch. Do what works best for you. What we have described here is what works best for most of our clients, but you know what’s best for you, so we will work with what you’d like to do. It’s most important that you spend enough time with Karena that, together, you can create a strong Scolio-Pilates® exercise program for you to continue at home; as long as we can accomplish that, any schedule works.
During your intensive you can expect the following to be accomplished:
- Assessment of your scoliosis curve
- A system for wedging your curve towards neutral
- A system for strengthening the spine once placed towards neutral
- A system of elongation for your scoliosis
- A system of breathing to assist movement towards neutral
- A system of fascial involvement to assist the more neutral position
How to Schedule: Email Karena
Invoice: You will be asked to pay for two hours of your session before you arrive. The invoice will be emailed to you.
Still photography and video of your exercises are allowed and we encourage it. Thank-you! If you’d like us to video your home program and prepare it for you, please let us know and we can make arrangements for that as well.
