Light on Scoliosis

Join us for a special scoliosis workshop with Laurel Thomas Laulkar, who studied intensively with B.K.S. Iyengar (Guruji) and his daughter Geeta Iyengar as she sought an alternative to surgery for her scoliosis. Guruji’s guiding wisdom is that the person with scoliosis must bring the spine into alignment by working the muscles along the corrected position. Learn how to adjust āsanas (yoga postures) to address your scoliosis in this workshop.

Included in this workshop is a 1 hour component especially for teachers. We will address ways to accommodate students within a class, so that their needs are attended to at the level of others, such as proportional differences, and how to compensate in poses.

The body with scoliosis uses the spine as a means of self-discovery. Students and teachers are encouraged to attend the entire workshop to gain the most out of Laurel’s experience in this field.
