Class Descriptions:
Stretch, Dance & Yoga for Scoliosis with Martha Carter | Based on the Yoga for Scoliosis teachings of Elise Browning Miller, Martha introduces ways for each person to understand and work with their particular asymmetries. Through a series of simple stretch and yoga poses, Martha draws on her own experience as a dance artist with scoliosis, guiding students to explore a creative approach to connecting with their spine, finding balance and relieving symptoms of pain, tightness, and compression.

TRE (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) with Joanne Wong | This technique was developed by Dr. David Bercelli to solve his own PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Come and experience what all mammals on the planet already know. We have the innate ability to discharge past and daily tension and stress. Yet we layer on negative life experiences until we have aches and pains, sleep disorders, gastro-intestinal troubles, etc. In this class, you will be led through simple exercises to help open the body to relaxation. This technique allows your nervous system to release tension from cranium to sacrum. With regular practice, the body eventually finds homeostasis.

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.
