Scolio-Pilates: More Movement, Less Pain.

Founder, Karena Thek, created Scolio-Pilates to be an easy-to-understand and easily accessible exercise program for managing scoliosis at home or with an instructor. Scolio-Pilates is a three-dimensional exercise program that utilizes:

  • Elongation to lengthen the spine towards neutral.
  • Breathing techniques to open up areas of the ribcage and lungs that are locked from the shape of the scoliosis.
  • Strengthening to maintain the alignment once a more neutral position is achieved.
  • Corrections using wedges where appropriate to assist the spine towards neutral.

Helen New was invited by Karena Thek, founder of Scolio-Pilates® to become a Master Scolio-Pilates® Instructor and to represent her ‘Down Under’!

Module II builds upon the pre-requisite Module I, Scolio-Pilates® Professional Seminar.


We will dive deeper into understanding the anatomy of scoliosis and use that understanding to define the curves of scoliosis (3, 4 and thoraco-lumbar curves). Once we define the curves we can begin to understand how to correct those curves towards neutral. We use scoliosis specific corrections and scoliosis specific exercises to aid us in bringing our clients towards a more balanced system.


The scoliosis specific exercises begin with corrections in the basic positions of prone, supine, side-lying, seated and standing. Once the corrections are applied in the basic positions, we add movement to these corrections either on the mat or with the assistance of the Pilates equipment. Come learn why Scolio-Pilates®, a form of Pilates that allows for modifications to assist the client with scoliosis in the Pilates studio, is now being used by children’s hospitals, physical therapy clinics and Pilates studios worldwide to help with the management of scoliosis.
