Scoliosis

Hello, I hope you are well. I have a few questions. Is Parsvakonasana a pose that is good for someone with scoliosis? I can see that it really shows up in this pose. Should someone with scoliosis modify it in some way?

Yes, it is good pose for curvature. It should be modified so that one does the pose in a way that you can see the spinal curves correcting during the practice. On the side that doesn't make much change or is simply curving with the scoliosis it is better to be gentle. Parsvottanasana is a better pose for curvature as it corrects the imbalance from the legs upward and creates a more long lasting change.
