Dr. Martin’s book provides a theoretical framework and specific progressive exercises in the Pilates environment in their work with those individuals who have asymmetries of the spine, ribcage and pelvis associated with conditions such as scoliosis. This book helps Pilates instructors who want to move beyond basic certification to work safely and effectively with those who have structural and functional asymmetries.

The many musculoskeletal ramifications of spinal asymmetry are explained, based on relevant anatomy and current theories of causes of deformity, thus throwing light on an often confusing topic. A developed framework offers practical solutions that will further the body of knowledge in the specialized education of Pilates instructors by enabling them to learn a safe and systematic method of instructing those with scoliosis.
