Did you know that Usain bolt has scoliosis? And that it probably makes him even faster? ‘If it’s not broken, don’t fix it’ they say, but what if it is broken, yoga might fix it.
In this workshop we examine typical postural imbalances. Spinal misalignment and muscular imbalances are everywhere.

“My philosophy is that anyone who can breathe can do yoga. You don’t have to be super bendy or even very fit to start feeling the benefits of yoga practice. I get a huge amount of satisfaction out of seeing people discover those benefits.”
Jim Harrington has been practising and teaching yoga for more than 20 years. Jim has been called “The teacher’s teacher” because he has mentored more than 150 other teachers through his mentorship and teacher training programmes.
Jim’s approach to yoga is based on decades of experience in traditional yoga as well as modern exercise. The synthesis of the ancient traditions with contemporary thinking and research-based science continues to inform his teaching of yoga, pranayama and meditation.See profile ›
