It has been absolutely fabulous working with you. In so many ways, you embody the qualities that you teach: kindness, gentleness, perseverance and strength. I have learned a great deal from you, not just about a more congruent, patient way to approach my scoliosis, but also about what it means to persevere in the face of chronic pain with more calm and less stress. You are all about nurturing the body, not blaming it for its less than perfect parts. --LS
I have done extensive studies in the art and science of working with scoliosis. I've studied with Elise Browning Miller, the yoga community's premiere scoliosis expert. I received Yoga for Scoliosis certification through her program.
I have also studied scoliosis in the Pilates/Therapeutic Pilates style incorporating both matwork and equipment. Melanie Byford Young, my Pilates mentor, is a world-renowned expert in all things rehab or therapeutic-focused Pilates.
Somatic Movement is also a wonderful way to work with the curves and long held patterns of scoliosis, and I have studied with Martha Peterson and Laura Gates of Essential Somatics to more fully understand how scoliosis can be unwound using somatic movement.
I work with scoliosis students in a private, one-on-one setting. After teaching a group scoliosis class for years, I've found that one-on-one nets the best results.
