Classes Offered at Callan-Harris Physical Therapy, PC


Caring for the Curve

Workshop Series

  This interactive workshop is specifically designed to assist people with scoliosis in defining their curves, aligning their spines and  learning individualized positions and exercises. The exercises will focus on helping students to align, elongate, and strengthen their backs and to move with less pain in daily life and exercise. The workshop will provide students with both a visual, as well as positional, "template" to best align and minimize the curve. This will be integrated in session 1 with daily function in common positions including lying, sitting, standing, and walking. Session 2 will focus on yoga postures in lying, sitting, kneeling, and standing positions.

We recommend attending both sessions for the greatest benefit.

Each session will run approximately 2 hours.

Yoga for Posture

Bad posture? Good posture? PERFECT! Get moving as you learn how your body works to maintain upright and learn how to make gravity easier on your joints and muscles. Discover the natural asymmetries in the human body and how we can correct them through sensory input. This six-week class moves from the core outward, touching on pelvis, hips, shoulders, and neck in order to make you the boss of your body again. This is a group class and is not a substitute for one-to-one evaluation by a physical therapist. If you are having significant pain or functional limitation, we advise you to  please contact our office for an evaluation.
