October 24, 2021 Yoga and scoliosis with Helen Barsby – working with imbalance

“Yoga presents the kind of training that is needed to alter the life-long inclination toward scoliosis” (Dr. Loren Fishman, MD)
Since the first workshop in spring 2014 working with scoliosis and yoga, Helen continues this interesting series of workshops in 6-8 week intervals. They are designed to go into depth with the concept of symmetry in the yoga poses working with an assymetrical body. It is open to all levels and ages, to people familiar with Iyengar yoga practice.

In the workshop we will explore the need to practise with heightened sensitivity, concavity and convexity each requiring different adjustment. Concepts of stability and mobility, centralisation and decentralisation, and three dimensional working with the spine are explored in the familiar yoga poses. The workshops can be joined at any stage, each workshop, after a basic sequence of grounding and sensitising the practitioners on the current state of things, focuses on a particular area, or group of asanas, in order to constantly go into more depth and understanding, bringing about better alignment and ease in an asymmetrical body.

Helen came to yoga in her early twenties looking to balance the disbalance in her spine. She found in Iyengar® yoga the precision and depth which has made a profound impact on the shape and state of her spine.
