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.
I was diagnosed with ‘S’ shaped Idiopathic 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.
My spinal freedom continues to be maintained with daily practice of Yoga for Scoliosis..
I have also been privileged to assist Elise Browning Miller on Yoga for Scoliosis teacher training.
All these experiences have inspired me to teach Yoga for Scoliosis to children and adults.
