Managing Scoliosis with Pilates

Hosted by Tessah Joseph, Functional Exercise Therapist & Pilates Instructor


Saturday, April 28th | 1:30 – 3:30pm

Early bird: Payment by April 16th: $40 | Regular: $45

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • the basic structure and mechanics of scoliosis
  • different scoliosis curve classifications and basic scoliosis postural assessment
  • foundational exercises and breathing techniques to improve alignment, stability and posture

If you have x-rays or images of your spine, please send them to Tessah in advance. Any information regarding your scoliosis will be helpful. Appropriate for teens and adults.

About Tessah:

I found Pilates 8 years ago and quickly discovered its effectiveness in managing pain from scoliosis. A year into practice I decided to get certified and bring Pilates to more people living with pain. As of June 2016, I have completed two certifications and various specialized courses on working with injuries, special conditions and managing scoliosis. My scoliosis management program aligns with the Schroth Method adaptations for Pilates. Exercises focus on spinal elongation, gentle derotation and stabilization. While specific goals will vary depending on age and severity, my overall approach targets slowing progression of the scoliosis, reducing pain, and improving posture and quality of life.

I love working with clients recovering from injury, degeneration or pain, as well as those who just need a little direction to help them improve their daily self-care.
