Pure Yoga West Workshop, NYC: Scoliosis, Back Pain, Shoulder Pain
Scoliosis is curvature of the spine estimated to affect between 3 – 9 million Americans, most of them girls between the ages of 11-16, but also a large number of older people. A difficult surgery with a long recovery is often recommended; conservative, non-invasive treatments are controversial. Dr. Fishman’s yoga method has been shown in a recent objective, peer-reviewed study to be effective, extremely simple and without side effects.
In this workshop, Dr. Fishman will review the relevant anatomy, the processes that create scoliosis, how to evaluate the curves, and how to treat them with yoga, and follow up to be sure it’s working. Together, Dr. Fishman and Ms. Gabriella Barnstone will teach you the poses to experience the effects. Dr. Fishman and Ms. Barnstone have worked with over 300 clients with scoliosis, and reducing the curves in more than 90% of cases.
