From the Publisher"Marcia Monroe has created a dynamic, practical, and comprehensive guide to understanding how to approach the challenges of spinal asymmetry due to scoliosis. It is based on her many years of uncovering and re-patterning the habitual movements underlying scoliosis in herself and in others whom she has helped. Th rough awareness of the body's subtle movements in relation to the rebounding forces of gravity and spatial tension, she provides specific guidance on how to create an individualized yoga program for scoliosis. This book will be of significant value to anyone seeking deep insight and support of how to bring the spine into more balanced alignment and ease."

" Thanks to large-scale screening programs which make it possible to identify spinal deformity in its early stages, long before surgical intervention is an issue, 999 of every 1000 patients diagnosed with scoliosis are not 'treatable' by surgical approaches 99+% of patients who do not need surgery DO need help. Marcia Monroe's book offers one avenue that patients can explore for that much-needed help in coping with the effects of scoliosis over a lifetime."-Martha Hawes, PhD, author of Scoliosis and the Human Spine
"Marcia Monroe's book chronicles her personal journey with idiopathic scoliosis using modified postures of yoga to help achieve balance, comfort, and stability. While contrary to medical thinking, meeting Marcia after thirty years of experience treating patients with scoliosis has led me to accept that she has chosen the best option. Through her dedication to yoga, Marcia has been able to maintain the necessary stability, articulation, and flexibility of the spine without pain."
