These classes cover the basic skills you need to participate in the Backcare & Backcare Basics classes in a progressive manner.

Yoga & Scoliosis (Wednesdays @ 6:00 PM, Thursdays @ 10:00 AM, Saturdays 12:15pm)
For students with a lateral/rotational curvature(s) of the spine. The focus is on extension and working with issues affecting people with scoliosis such as balance, proprioception, strength and reducing compensatory patterns. All levels welcome including those new to yoga. $23
Intermediate Yoga & Scoliosis (Mondays @ 7:15 PM )
For students with mature yoga practice or who have been taking the Yoga & Scoliosis or Backcare class on a regular basis for a minimum of 1 year.

Yoga & Scoliosis Lunchtime Basics (Fridays @ 12:30-1:30 PM )
This class covers the basic information needed to understand the way to work in the Yoga & Scoliosis classes at Yoga Union Backcare, including learning and understanding your own curves, basic poses to charge awareness and gain extension, working with proprioceptive issues and balance. This class moves slower and more step-by-step than the Open Level Yoga & Scoliosis classes.
Yoga for Disc Herniation/Backcare & Herniation @ 6:30 PM Tuesdays $22, @ 12:30-1:30 Wednesdays $17
This also includes any other disc related problem such as bulging discs, dessication, extrusion, degeneration, etc. And since herniation is so common in the L4/L5/S1 area we also welcome students with general low back pain. Both classes are also appropriate for general backcare.
Yoga & Scoliosis for Students with Harrington Rods & Other Surgical Fusions (Starts Wed October 1 4-5:30pm)
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 hypermobile joints or open up very stiff areas—without destabilizing the body or the instrumentation itself.
Restorative (Fridays @ 6:00 PM)
This class is for students of all levels. By supporting the body with props, poses are held longer. Poses emphasize deep release and rejuvenate the body and mind. $23
Lunchtime Backcare Basics Classes (Tuesdays & Thursdays @ 12:45 PM)
For all types of back problems, pain and postural problems including scoliosis. These classes are only 1 hour long and move a bit slower, and step by step in comparison to the Backcare Classes. $17
