Got scoliosis? Take a stand for your spine with yoga

Yoga offers a lifetime of rewards for students especially those with scoliosis.

Take a stand for your spine by strengthening your foundation. Strong legs creates a solid base from which the spine can stretch and become freer. Standing poses enable your legs, rather than your spine, to carry the weight of the body.

Stand with your feet hip width apart and look at your toes. Spin your second toes so they are parallel with each other.
Feel your big toe ball mound to your inner heal root into the earth. Breathe and feel the length of your legs with a slight bend in your knees. Feel the pinky toe ball mound press down as much as your big toe and then feel the outer edge of heel to become as root as the first three points. Breathe and feel the distance between your knees resting a matched distance away from each other as your ankles.

When on your feet standing or walking, it’s important to put equal weight on both feet and with the practice of yoga in your life you’ll be aware of any imbalances to move towards balance.

Take a stand for your spine with scoliosis by practicing public yoga classes weekly or meet for Personalized Yoga Programs.

Yoga can be very beneficial for scoliosis patients. It’s good for the mind and body and can be very therapeutic. Of course, a scoliosis patient should first consult their doctor to find out what kinds of exercise they should or should not do.
