This accelerated workshop will introduce the concept of “C curve” scoliosis (the lateral curvature of the spine), causing a long leg/short leg or high/low shoulder distortion. The course will include a review of the musculature and medical conditions possible with this distortion, including the more complex condition of “S curve” scoliosis. Participants will be given treatment protocols, with lots of practice time.
1. Bring (or wear) a fitness tank top and athletic shorts for draping during participant practice sessions.
2. All other class materials provided.
