The book is a useful tool for addressing scoliosis through exercise, both for those who have the condition and for Pilates instructors with scoliotic clients... Wellings and Herdman have assembled a set of 34 exercises primarily focused on stretching and lengthening, that are appropriate for people with symptoms ranging from mild to severe scoliosis, and even for the general population. Author: PilatesPro

From the Author:

Annette Wellings is a Pilates instructor who suffers from major scoliosis. She began exploring different ways of keeping her body flexible and healthy whilst working as a linguist and artist in Australia. Subsequently, she retrained in rehabilitation Pilates.

Alan Herdman is the UK's leading practitioner of Pilates. After introducing Pilates to the UK in 1970, he went on to establish studios both here and in several other countries. He continues to adapt and develop new exercises to address the needs of every client he consults with. He currently teaches doctors, professional dancers and sportsmen and women, as well as people with a wide variety of physical disabilities.
