WORKSHOPS

Finding Emotional & Physical Balance with Scoliosis

*Three day workshop. More details coming soon.

During her research in the Master’s Program, Erica decided to focus on clients dealing with Scoliosis. She wanted to create a program that encouraged people to deal with all aspects of their Scoliosis diagnosis - both the physical and emotional impact. This is not a program that emphasizes curve correction, but instead focuses on achieving emotional and physical balance with the over-all body. Erica wants to keep the focus on how instructors can encourage clients by building their self-esteem and confidence in dealing with their scoliosis. She wants to teach people to experience joy in physical movements (instead of focusing on limitations) and joy in the life and body they have.

Finding Emotional & Physical Balance with Scoliosis - Adolescent Focus

*One day workshop. More details coming soon.

Since being diagnosed at age 11 with Scoliosis, Erica has always wanted to help other adolescents. This workshop builds off of the Finding Emotional & Physical Balance with Scoliosis and teaches instructors how to work with adolescents. The purpose of this workshop is to teach instructors how to nurture, educate and grow the understanding and importance of acknowledging the emotional impact of rehabbing Scoliosis in adolescents. This workshop is based on her work for a year with a 17 year old female with Scoliosis and her rehabilitation process after undergoing Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT) surgery.
