This 2 day workshop, created and presented by Rika Brixie, will introduce the three-dimensional curves of a scoliosis, methods of assessing them and the physical and emotional effects that these curves have on the body, and the person, as a whole. Pilates for Scoliosis will provide detailed insight into the symptoms, onset, causes and treatment protocol for scoliosis. Participants will learn how to modify and adapt exercises for differing curve patterns as well as exploring repertoire on the mat and Pilates apparatus, specifically designed to optimise movement and conditioning for each unique scoliotic spine.
