Yoga Therapy for Scoliosis

Yoga is science and art, just like civil engineering. As science, it requires calculations, precision and planning; as art, it needs a presence of mind and presentation skill. Both combined together, it can make any leaning tower or building stronger and stable.

Citing this example, scoliosis is a leaning tower. Yoga can help a practitioner to be more self-conscious and protect one from any further injuries.

Yoga Therapy

Yoga is all about bringing alignment and getting centered to the body and the mind. Both asanas and pranayama work together to generate structural (externally) and functional (internally) benefits to frame the alignment in the body. Every asana strengthens the weak muscle(s) and brings elasticity in the body so the legs and pelvis get centered with the shoulders and the head. Most importantly, one gets better awareness about the centre and stronger mind to deal with major issues.

Many people don’t realise that they are doing most of their activities predominately on one side. This happens, for instance, in sports or carrying heavy weight. Always try to alternate the same activity to get a balance. This is the main theme in

Hatha Yoga. In addition, parents should teach and ensure their children carrying school bags correctly. It is never too late to practise Yoga therapy for scoliosis. With guidance from an experienced teacher, one can modify and get benefit from the asana practice.
