Chair Yoga for Scoliosis

No excuses anymore... you can do yoga anywhere. Here is a short chair yoga sequence you can even do at work! No yoga mat needed... just a chair!  

"I don't have time to do yoga..." Oh how many times to I hear that excuse. And even more times I have probably used it myself!

There are just not enough hours in the day, right? Wrong! Time is what it is... we can't freeze it, we can't stop it. The only thing we can influence how we spend it! Just think about the huge benefits that you will get from just 15min of yoga! 

Little and often

It doesn't always have to be a full hour yoga practice. Especially for scoliosis little and often is much better! Think about all that time during the day (and night) that you spend NOT moving.

Think about what your muscles have to go through during that time. As the spine is not balanced some muscles have to work harder than others... they tighten and tighten until they don't even remember anymore how to release! And those muscles that are weak are just getting weaker and weaker as they are not being worked. It's a viscous cycle. 

If we move around every 45min or so they get a chance to reorganize themselves. I don't suggest you do this sequence every half an hour (you might get some funny looks from your co-workers and boss!) but how about once a day? Maybe during your lunch break. Maybe your mid-morning or mid-afternoon break. 

Let me know if it makes a difference!
