Yoga for Scoliosis. Yoga Union, located at Lila Wellness in New York City, offers the only regular “Yoga and Scoliosis” class on the East Coast. Taught by registered yoga therapist Deborah Wolk, the class is promoted as being ideal not only for those with scoliosis, but for anyone with asymmetries of the spine.

Pilates Ring Workshops. Small-group classes on how to use the Pilates ring are offered as a “Group Exclusive” at select clubs in the Town Sports International network, including the New York Sports Clubs.

Embodied Judaism. This spiritual and physical practice is grounded in traditional Jewish teachings about the sanctity of the physical body and the natural world. Created by personal trainer Ari Weller, developer of Integrative Movement Conditioning (based on Pilates and Gyrotonic®), and Jay Michaelson, a lifelong teacher of Jewish mysticism and environmental education, the class is reportedly about experiencing God in the body and the natural world.
