Back2Health Yoga, an Iyengar yoga studio in Wappingers Falls, is offering a Yoga for Scoliosis series from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on September 12, 19, 26 and October 3, 2023. Additionally, they are adding a weekly Back Care and Scoliosis class for all types of back conditions, including scoliosis; it will be held on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. beginning October 6, 2023.

“Yoga for scoliosis is a growing specialty that provides a holistic approach to ease structural imbalances caused by curves in the spine. Yoga can help improve posture and alignment by stretching muscles that have tightened and strengthening muscles that have grown weak. This can help to reduce the curvature of the spine and prevent further progression of scoliosis,” explains Cristina Roy, studio owner and certified Iyengar yoga teacher.

In the four-week series, attendees will learn the foundational skills needed to work with scoliosis, including understanding their curve pattern and how to modify poses. During the weekly class, participants will experience a sequence of poses that lengthen the spine and slowly coax the body into more symmetrical alignment.

Cost: $205 for the series (includes a private yoga session; required for new participants); $25 for the class (new students are encouraged to either attend the series or have a private session before joining the class). Location: Back2Health Yoga, 6 Broadway Ave., Wappingers Falls, NY. For more information, call 845.202.2228, email [email protected] or visit
