Madeline, I have an 11 year old client who wears a soft brace. She's been wearing it for your mat exercises but I was wondering if it would be better for her to do the exercises without it. Your weigh in?
Valya, If you leadingher through thismat class, I would keep the brace on. Working witht he apparatus material in the workshop, I would try the very small aligment work with it off, then back on for the larger movements. Be mindful about the affects she feels after moving with you.
Madeline what a fabulous class - so useful and so clearly taught. Thank you! Q: I have a new client with very severe 70º right thoracic curve and so severe that she cannot lie on her back. Should I avoid supine or should I try lying her on a soft foam mattress and then padding sides accordingly? Thanks
Hi Britt-Angela , to be clear breath into the concave side of the curve, so a left concavity of the thorax is called a right convexity, breath into the left side. You say a right thorax, so I believe you mean the convexity is on the right.
Hi Madeline, I just wanted to say that I’ve been doing Pilates with scoliosis for 10 years and have never been able to feel the effects of the exercises correctly until I listened to your instructions. More videos, Please!
