Can yoga improve the condition of scoliosis? How does one practice yoga with scoliosis? Does it help, and yield sustainable long term results? What about the frustration, depletion, self-consciousness, and disharmony that one may experience?
As someone living with scoliosis, these were some of the questions Adelene had, and would like to share with you in this workshop.
With open discussions held within a safe environment, Adelene will share her journey and experience growing up, living and practising with scoliosis. We will learn and understand how to practice with scoliosis, and explore therapeutic practices to release negative tension and tightness from a somatic approach. This is a gradual healing process and a sustainable one with full embodiment and awareness. The intention is to alleviate physical discomfort; re-map postural alignment; re-establish and refine balance; release emotional and psychological tension brought about by living with scoliosis.
This workshop offers:
- insights into the spinal health for those with scoliosis
- experiential practices to promote sensory intelligence
- accessible modifications for individual curvatures
- build confidence in managing and practising with scoliosis
- restorative postures to balance and rejuvenate
Through years of training, research, teaching, self-study and dedicated practice, Adelene has successfully helped herself and many others reclaim freedom (physically, emotionally and mentally), hope and empowerment within themselves. Join Adelene on this workshop to understand, to have a conversation, to practice, with lots of opportunities for Q&A. Suitable for students, teachers and practitioners alike, to demonstrate and offer an experiential approach in practicing and living with scoliosis.
