The spine is central to our body and posture – this is a given. So what happens when this structure is compromised, imbalanced, crooked, or immobilized? Scoliosis and spinal fusion can present us with a host of frustrations, especially in movement classes like yoga.
In this 4-hour workshop, we will examine the common curvature patterns of scoliosis, and explore four key actions that most benefit students with scoliosis: traction, side bending, rotation, and strengthening. We will also practice pose modifications and variations for students who have received scoliosis fusion surgery.
Whether you’re new to yoga, a seasoned practitioner, or a yoga teacher looking to learn more on this topic, this workshop will offer valuable tools to help you understand and celebrate the unique bodies we carry.
Abby Kraai received her initial 200-hr training from Yoga Tree in San Francisco, CA, and completed her 500-hr training with Jason Crandell. She has studied a rich blend of styles including Vinyasa, Hatha, Iyengar, Yin, Restorative, Meditation, Yoga for Scoliosis, Trauma-Informed Yoga, Kids Yoga, and Yoga for Athletes. Abby first came to the mat as a teenager, when she was diagnosed with a severe case of scoliosis. When back braces, chiropractors, and yoga were not enough, she received corrective surgery in 2002. Two stainless steel rods, twenty-two screws, and eleven fused vertebrae later, Abby found new meaning in the word flexibility, and a refreshed appreciation for the marvel that is the human body. She took up distance running, cycling, and Ultimate Frisbee, and soon found herself pulled back to yoga. Through a balance of Vinyasa, Restorative, and Meditation practices, she built a stronger connection between her breath, body and mind; this connection followed her out of the studio and onto the Frisbee field, the race course, and into her daily life. In every class that she teaches, Abby hopes to inspire her students to appreciate their bodies, stretch their limits, and never to take themselves too seriously. Abby’s other interests include improv comedy, cooking, organic farming, and petting small dogs.
