Yoga and Scoliosis: Journey to Health and Healing

Yoga and Scoliosis: A Journey to Health and Healing by Marcia Monroe is a source of encouragement, knowledge, and healing for those who have scoliosis and want to treat it without surgery. The book briefly covers the history of scoliosis, along with conservative and non-conservative treatments options, looking at motor and perceptual human movement development. 

Yoga and Scoliosis explores the complexities of the concept of alignment in the asymmetric body using the Iyengar system of yoga to work with scoliosis based on the author’s experience. The book begins with a foreword by Sri B.K.S. Iyengar, with subsequent chapters giving instruction in yoga asana for scoliosis and discussing yoga practice in daily living. A sequence from Yoga and Scoliosis is available at iynaus.org. The book will be available November 2011.
