DEBBY GREEN

BUNIONS!

SUNDAY JULY 27 2-4PM

$50



In this workshop we will first briefly look at the anatomy of hallux valgus, commonly known as a bunion, as well as each person's individual joint patterns.

The term bunion is a general description of the painful bony condition that arises when the proximal phalange laterally deviates from the 1st metatarsal. However, because of the several bones directly involved, as well as the surrounding foot structure, each person’s bunion has its own distinct set of circumstances, which typically are different in each foot. We will identify everyone’s patterns first in order to inform how each person should proceed. We will then learn ways to work in yoga asanas to redirect the metatarso-phalangeal joint (bunion) for better function and ease in the foot and therefore the entire body, not only in yoga but also daily life. This holistic approach makes the workshop applicable and appropriate for everyone who has feet!!

The bunion has long been an intense personal study for Debby. She has been studying and teaching yoga for 15 years and holds an Introductory Level Iyengar Yoga Teacher certification. Currently, she teaches at Yoga Union Center for Backcare & Scoliosis, Equinox, the Iyengar Institute of Brooklyn and privately in NYC. She is certified by The Rolf Institute of Structural Integration as a rolfing practitioner. Her work derives also from many years as a dancer. She studied ballet from a formative age with the great Cecchetti ballet teacher, Margaret Craske.

Yoga Union Center for Backcare & Scoliosis is proud to present Elise Browning Miller's renowned Yoga for Scoliosis Teacher training Program.


Most of the Yoga Union Center for Backcare & Scoliosis faculty has completed this 20 hour course 

program and highly recommends it for teachers and students alike.  The Yoga for Scoliosis Teacher Training is the first teachers' training program designed specifically to train yoga teachers on how to work with students who have scoliosis.  This course may lead you to do the coursework and practicum for a Yoga for Scoliosis Trainer Certification.  For those guidelines and benefits click here. 


The course is in 2 parts.  Part 2 may only stand alone if you have taken Elise's Part 1 at another time (at another location is fine, of course).  You must take Part 1 even if you are a scoliosis student at Yoga Union Backcare or even if you have taken scoliosis workshops with Deborah Wolk, Alison West or Elise Browning Miller before.


Part 1 only: October 17-19, $300 before Sept 1, after Sept 1 $330.


Register for the Full Workshop (parts I and 2) before Sept 1 $570, after Sept 1 $625

DURING THIS COURSE TRAINEES WILL LEARN:


The anatomy and physiology of scoliosis


The common scoliotic patterns


Patterns of injury and pain with scoliosis


Yoga Asana to address scoliotic patterns which will help reduce progression, pain and discomfort, and perhaps even the curve(s) themselves.


About other patterns that often accompany scoliosis such as hip and shouldeproblems, neck problems, proprioception and disorientation.


How to give verbal and hands-on adjustments to your students with scoliosis.


How to use Yoga Props to specifically address scoliotic patterns and related issues.


Adressing psychological aspects of scoliosis. 


 How to work with your own students with scoliosis (especially if you also have them participate!)


Students with scoliosis of all levels who participate will gain inestimable experience working with methods of approaching yoga that specifically address their scoliosis and related back issues. Along with the teachers (best scenario would be to attend with your teacher) you will learn the modifications to your practice or ways to start a new practice that can accompany you for life. If you feel your yoga teacher could benefit from this training, suggest they attend with you! 


Elise is known for her ease of personality and encouraging approach that allows students to surpass their limits and work safely with physical limitations. Working with her and teacher trainees allows them to experience modifications and proper adjustments in each pose…so there is no doubt about “getting it right”.


Lastly, taking this course at Yoga Union Center for Backcare and Scoliosis allows you to take this training at a Yoga Center specifically set up for the purpose of working with these issues. 


The Center boasts the longest rope wall in NYC and features specialized props many of which were custom made for the Center for people with scoliosis. You will probably learn more about scoliosis-oriented props here than at any other location!


 Elise has been a part of our Center for Backcare and Scoliosis since its inception. Each year, we are so happy to welcome her back.  

Whether you are looking to work with your own scoliosis or with that of your students (or both) we look forward to having you join us for two great weekends of learning with one of the top and most beloved specialists in this field of yoga.
