About Martha's class:
Through a series of simple exercises inspired by dance, yoga, pilates and massage techniques, Martha draws on her own experience as a dance artist with scoliosis. Her classes guide students to explore a creative approach to connecting with their spine, finding balance and relieving symptoms of pain, tightness, and compression.

About Joanne's classes:
Based on her extensive training in Pilates, Yoga and the TRE method (Trauma and Tension Release Exercises), Joanne's classes will focus on decreasing stress on the joints to minimize pain and the risk of injury. The TRE method can also help with anxiety and sleep disorders caused by holding tension in the body.

Stretch for Scoliosis: The Martha Carter Way

Martha Carter was a young and enthusiastic 11-year old dancer when she was diagnosed with a ‘C’ curve scoliosis which required extreme Harrington Rod surgery, a year in a body cast, and the destruction of her dream to dance. But that did not stop her. Several years after her surgery, she found herself drawn back to dance realizing that it was essential to keep her back mobile and healthy, and was also an important way to express herself emotionally and artistically.
