It has been said that most students who embark on a yoga practice do so to address back pain or other back problems. Yoga, practiced with a specific focus, can be the key to alleviating pain and creating more balance in the body. In this 2 day workshop, Deborah Wolk, Founder and Program Director of Samamkaya Yoga Back Care & Scolioisis Collective in New York City will teach ways to address and heal all types of back pain and alignment issues such as disc herniation, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, swayback, whiplash, and kyphosis.
SATURDAYʼS PROGRAM will focus on Sagittal plane issues such as kyphosis and lordosis, spondylolisthesis, as well as other common issues such as disc herniation and pain in the lower back, shoulder and neck.
SUNDAYʼS PROGRAM will focus on the lateral and rotational plane including scoliosis as well as pelvic torque, SI joint dysfunction and other asymmetries.
All levels including brand new beginners and teachers are welcome. For teens: one parent may accompany their teen with scoliosis for free. Teaching Language ENGLISH
Having practiced yoga since 1994, Deborah found that practicing alignment-based yoga could control back pain and arrest the progression of her scoliosis. That awareness inspired her to complete Alison Westʼs Yoga Union Teacher Training in 2000. Deborah then studied Yoga and Scoliosis with Bobbie Fultz, completed Karin Stephanʼs Advanced Studies Program in Therapeutics and Teacher Training in 2005. Deborah also assisted her primary teacher Genny Kapuler for 10 years and studied in Pune India with the Iyengar family in December 2007. Since 2002 Ms. Wolk has taught Yoga & Scoliosis and Yoga for Back Care workshops in New York City, throughout the US, in Europe and Asia. In 2003 she created the first weekly Yoga & Scoliosis class on the East Caost. In 2007-2014 with Alison West, Ms. Wolk Co-Founded and Co-Directed the successful Yoga Union Center for Backcare and Scoliosis and instituted a wide variety of classes for fusions. Descriptions of Deborahʼs classes have been written up in YogaCity NYC, The New York Times as well as by the now (in)famous writer Emily Gould!) January 2015 marked the opening of Samamkāya Yoga/Back Care & Scoliosis Collective.
