Join Senior Certified Iyengar Teacher Elise Browning Miller for a special 5-day, two-part Yoga for Scoliosis workshop. This is Elise's fifth visit to teach in BC and she has inspired and trained many local TOPS associates in yoga for scoliosis.

The retreat will be held at the fully equipped and stunning Yoga Weyr near Nanaimo on gorgeous Vancouver Island. Guests will stay close by at the 10-acre park-like waterfront estuary that is Kiwi Cove Lodge. Optional evening activities will include a mixture of social and educational events. Nature walks, river swimming and delicious shared meals included. Get away from your routine and immerse yourself in the teachings. With all of your material needs taken care of, you can focus on learning, relaxing and socializing in your preferred amounts.

These workshops are designed for students with scoliosis of all levels and are also great for yoga teachers seeking to expand their knowledge.

From Vancouver to Nanaimo, one can take public transit (bus), the ferry, a private bus or a plane. For rates on flights from Vancouver to Nanaimo, see here:
