Yoga for Scoliosis

Cristina Roy, owner and certified Iyengar yoga teacher at Back2Health Yoga, is offering a four-week Yoga for Scoliosis series from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning May 24, 2023. Attendees will learn the foundational skills needed to work with scoliosis, including understanding curves and how to work with them. They will learn basic anatomy of the spine related to scoliosis and how to modify the poses to develop greater spinal length and create new patterns of movement.

Students will experience a sequence of poses that lengthen the spine and slowly coax the body into a more symmetrical alignment. Roy states, “Improved posture and alignment is achieved by lengthening and strengthening the muscles in the back, hips and shoulders. This can help to reduce the curvature of the spine and prevent further progression of scoliosis.” Specializing in yoga for back care and scoliosis, she offers private lessons, workshops and ongoing weekly classes to address individual back care issues.

Cost is $205 for the full series, including one private yoga session (required) before the series starts. Location: 6 Broadway Ave., Wappingers Falls, NY. For more information, call 845.202.2228, email [email protected] or visit
