Scoliosis-Friendly Yoga

We’ve collaborated with the talented yoga instructors Kerr McLeod and Anne Zavalkoff to offer scoliosis-friendly yoga classes in our Vancouver AND North Vancouver locations!

These classes incorporate scoliosis principles and language based on the Schroth Method into traditional yoga poses, and are heavily focused on teaching participants how to modify movements so they can participate in community yoga classes.

Before your appointment

If you have X-Ray images, be sure to let us know as this will help your Physiotherapist design your treatment plan.

If you or your child already have a brace, physiotherapeutic scoliosis-specific exercises (PSSE) are recommended to maintain postural muscle strength, and to retain as much correction as possible when brace wear ends.

A referral to a spine surgeon and/or bracing can be discussed at the initial assessment.

Please bring:

  • X-ray images either digitally or on disc if available
    (we can request them directly from the imaging facility; more info upon booking your initial appointment)
  • Any relevant reports
  • Sports bra / tank top, shorts or leggings

Please note: Payments can be made by VISA, MasterCard, cash, or cheque. We cannot accept AMEX or debit at this time.
