Hi all,
after 10 years of having scoliosis, I've become completely tired of doctors and diagnoses, but I am not considering surgery, even though my curves are over 40. Anyway, that was a brief intro. I am interested in starting a yoga routine to alleviate the pain, but I know nothing about yoga, there are a dozen types out there, and maybe some of you know what is best for back pain. Thanks!

Hello! I've heard thru the NSF that Elise Miller puts out a Yoga tape for scoliosis; you might want to check out her website, Yogaforscoliosis.com. I ordered the tape, but haven't received it yet. It's available thru the NSF bookstore. Pat

Add my vote for the Elise Miller tape. We got it for my daughter (who is the one with scoli), but I like to do the practice myself for my ordinary middle-aged lower back pain.
