Yoga for Scoliosis Fundamentals

In Person / 30 hour Intensive
Next date TBC

The word scoliosis may be widely used to define a structural dysfunction of the spine, but Adelene believes there is more to it than a physical challenge. There are often unspoken and unacknowledged mental and emotional needs for one living with scoliosis. Through years of training, self-study, research, practice and teaching, Adelene has positively managed and improved her condition. This is an intensive where she shares her unique approach to practicing and living with scoliosis.
This 30-hour intensive offers comprehensive theory and experiential practice through yoga asana, breathing practices, inquiry-based learning, reflections, lectures and discussions. Participants are encouraged to explore creative ways to practice with scoliosis, listening and adapting from moment to moment, re-patterning through intelligent sensory acumen. This practice approach has been experienced by thousands of students internationally over the past decade.
​Highly recommended for those living with scoliosis, for teachers, therapists and professionals who are interested in working therapeutically with physical imbalances. Adelene has carefully structured the content to facilitate a supportive environment for learning and growth with respect to one’s personal journey.
