Klappentext: Marcia Monroe’s book chronicles her personal journey with ideopathic 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.
