Yoga with Scoliosis & Spinal Fusion

Immersion & Teacher Training

Join Abby in studying one of her favorite topics of all time: Yoga with Scoliosis & Spinal Fusion!

 

The first 30 hours of this program will be dedicated to understanding how to work with scoliosis and spinal fusion in your personal yoga practice. The last 20 hours will focus on the art of teaching private sessions and workshops to folks with scoliosis and fusion.

 

While this training will be grounded in sound anatomical understanding and precision, we will work with more than just the physical aspects of scoliosis and spinal fusion. Not only will we examine specific ways to adapt asana and pranayama for your and your students’ unique spines, but we will explore best practices for making your practice and teaching more inclusive, adaptive, and welcoming.

 

Note: This program will be live-streamed via Zoom, and capped at 16 students.
