Gill’s Story

I was diagnosed with an ‘S’ shaped structural scoliosis at the age of 14 which I endured into my twenties, when to my incredible good fortune Yoga entered my life. This gave me an instantaneous, huge release of physical and emotional tension. 

Unfortunately, a car accident in 2008, which left me with a whiplash injury to the thoracic spine. Yoga helped me manage the condition, but I turned a corner when I undertook Yoga for Scoliosis with Elise Browning Miller. This generated a catalytic release in the stuck muscles in my middle back and the pain from the injury dissolved!  I enjoyed and ‘felt’ visible improvement to the symmetry and alignment of my back.

I continue to maintain my spinal freedom with daily practice of Yoga for Scoliosis. My experience has inspired me to teach Yoga for Scoliosis to children and adults. 

Class Content

Class Content

Each One-to-One Session is carefully tailored to your unique curve/s and age. It is a combination of physical Hatha Yoga postures, breathing techniques (Pranayama) and deep relaxation.

Yoga for Scoliosis will help you to achieve more symmetrical alignment to your body, as “the body with Scoliosis has developed a highly sophisticated compensating ‘act’ and it can also learn a more refined symmetrical ‘act’ with proper instruction.
Elise Browning Miller

This is achieved by stretching muscles that have become tight and perhaps painful, and strengthening muscles that have become weak. For Scoliosis sufferers, this type of Yoga practice will help ease pain, improve posture and strengthen muscles to support the spine.

Since commencing Yoga for Scoliosis with Gill and practising it daily - my daughter has less back pain. She is more mobile and her stamina is better. She is able to walk for longer periods. She is less self conscious, as there is less rotation of her shoulder blade.
