Yoga for Scoliosis by Elise Browning Miller

TOPS Associate and frequent guest teacher Elise Browning Miller marked the trail for the Yoga for Scoliosis practice. In this article for Yoga Journal, Elise shares her journey to alignment through her own scoliosis while clearly outlining the history, anatomical context, and variations of the condition. She underscores the mental commitment and inner awareness one needs to help themselves. Yoga can help prevent and alleviate the pain that might come with a scoliotic spine, but above all Elise emphasizes that healing is about meeting our limitations where they’re at and taking the time to nurture self-awareness and inner knowledge.
