Yoga for Scoliosis Level 1, May 25 10-7:00, May 26 9:30-6:30. Cost $325 with early pay by April 24 of $295
This class is for those with scoliosis, yoga teachers, yoga therapists, occupational therapists and assistants, and physical therapists and assistants. This class is an approved CEU class for Yoga Alliance, IAYT, Florida OTS/COTAS, and is pending with the Pennsylvania OT board. PTs can submit individually for CEU approval.
Those with scoliosis present with unique challenges, which can include pain management, breathing capacity, balance/fall risk, mobility, cardiac problems, spinal deterioration, body image, and self-esteem. Muscle imbalances that can either contribute to or result from scoliosis can become exacerbated over time through the effects of gravity and positioning during activities of daily living and make the scoliosis worse. Research shows that scoliosis pattern-specific exercise can not only prevent worsening of the condition, but actually correct the curve. However, especially for adolescents, being involved in an exercise program for scoliosis can lead to depression and low self-esteem as they seem to emphasize the idea that “something is wrong with me.” Yoga not only offers scoliosis pattern-specific exercise that can reverse scoliosis curve but through the application of yoga philosophy can lead to a sense of self-mastery and self-empowerment that mitigates tendencies toward poor self-image. Yoga, applied appropriately, is effective in correcting muscle imbalances, elongating and de-rotating the spine, stretching and strengthening the left and right sides of the body separately, facilitating neurological reprogramming, promoting body awareness as well as awareness on all levels of being, and promoting self-acceptance and self-mastery. In addition, yoga gives yoga students clients and patients the tools they need to manage their condition throughout their lifetime, decreasing pain and debility as they age while promoting vibrancy, resiliency, and optimal health and well-being.
Learning objectives for yoga teachers without a healthcare license or yoga therapy designation:
1. Learn what scoliosis is and how it originates.
3. Learn the anatomy of different scoliosis patterns, and how to recognize it in students in class.
4. Learn how daily activities, including yoga can make the condition worse or better.
5. Learn how scoliosis affects other systems in the body which can come into play in yoga class;
6. Learn how to cue students in poses to optimize safety;
7. Learn the role of the yoga teacher versus licensed healthcare professionals and yoga therapists in working with students with scoliosis.
8. Experience a yoga practice geared toward strengthening and stretching the sides of the body separately to accommodate those with scoliosis.
Additional objectives for OT, PT, and yoga therapists:
8. Learn how to accurately assess clients and patients scoliosis patterns, accompanying postural and muscular imbalances in the entire structure, and well as imbalances in the chakra and kosher system using a questionnaire based on the koshas, breath assessment, and chakra assessment and assessment in standing and specific yoga poses.
9. Learn how to develop an individualized scoliosis pattern-specific yoga program for clients and patients, assess the effectiveness over time, and adjust the program as needed.
10. Obtain a written routine that can be prescribed to patients for self-management.
