With the emphasis on core alignment and stabilization, asymmetrical movement patterns, and a holistic approach, this Pilates Scoliosis program is designed to improve body awareness and increase core fitness and function. Scoliosis, in broad terms, refers to any lateral (side-to-side) curve of the spine. Scoliosis can create misalignments in the pelvis, vertebrae and rib cage. These misalignments are not self-contained in specific muscle groups, but influence all movements from standing to sitting to lying down. A component of treatment for scoliosis includes exercises that strengthen weak core muscles and stretch the tight structures of the trunk. Utilizing various pieces of equipment, the course addresses an in-depth approach to all aspects of the cause and treatment for scoliosis.

Our main teacher and mentor, Romana Kryzanowska, used to say “Keep the ultimate version of each exercise in your mind. Then modify to a version your client can do. But never forget the ultimate version, it will keep you and your client motivated as it will be a goal to aim for and they and you will never get bored.” In this workshop, we will cover the Super Advanced Reformer. Starting with the footwork following the classical Reformer order will cover exercises like; arabesque step off, Tiger Squat, Long Splits, Backbends, Bridges, Headstands, etc. In addition, we will cover variations for these classical exercises. Variations are NOT the same as modification; these variations will keep the intensity of the exercises but add a little bit variety.
