Yoga & Scoliosis for students with Harrington Rods and other Spinal Fusions

Because of the contraindications with Harrington Rods and other instrumentation, being in a general class —even one focused on scoliosis or back problems—can be frustrating.  This class covers all the principles and poses of the Yoga & Scoliosis classes but without twists, convex forward bending, backbending.  The practice will help strengthen muscles around the fusion in an aligned manner, bring stability to the hypermobile joints or open up very stiff areas—without destabilizing the body or the instrumentation itself.

Brand new to yoga? Confused in the Backcare classes? Don’t understand your back problem? Overwhelmed by the props?

Join our Backcare Beginners' Series!

This series will cover the basic skills you need to participate in the Backcare and Backcare Basics classes. With other new beginners to Backcare Classes at Yoga Union Center for Backcare & Scoliosis, instructor Lou Asselin will teach you many of the basic actions, find your alignment and learn prop adjustments appropriate for your scoliosis, herniated disk(s), kyphosis, lordosis, spondylolisthesis, lumbar or neck pain...or any other back problem. Learning these skills through a series will help you make a commitment to your yoga practice and help you integrate smoothly into the Backcare classes.


This series, 
especially designed for seniors new to the Yoga Union Center for Backcare and Scoliosis, offers a gentle introduction to practices many of which you can do at home to improve posture and relieve back pain. It is targeted for those who are ambulatory 
but might 
have certain physical limitations (e.g., using a cane, bone fragility, balance issues) that make other backcare classes less accessible.  This Introduction to Yoga for Backcare will improve your strength and range of motion, and help you develop ease and awareness to support your day-to-day activities.
