Book Review: Curves, Twists and Bends

The book, Curves, Twists and Bends: A Practical Guide to Pilates for Scoliosis written by Annette Wellings with help from Alan Herdman is a quick read that will provide you with insight into the world of living with scoliosis.

The book starts by educating about the variety of types of spinal curves, then introduces exercises and finishes with lifestyle ways to cope when living with scoliosis. The drawings are mostly done by hand or stick figure like, yet still basic enough to understand. This book can be read through in one sitting and is easy to understand.

I've tested out a handful of the exercises and find them to be wonderful additions to mat classes as basic principles or stretches for people no matter if they have scoliosis or not. A good resource for the everyday person as well as the Pilates professional.
