I have found Mimi to be an exceptional person, whose openness, sensitivity, and emotional resonance make our sessions a great pleasure, as well as enhance her particular teachings of yoga. She seems to possess an unlimited depth of knowledge, and is always able to adapt a pose to my specific needs, pains, capacities and general state during any given session. I think she is a perfect guide in this work. I cannot imagine anyone better.

Mimi Rosetti

Yoga Therapist for scoliosis, spinal fusions & other spine conditions

My name is Mimi Rosetti and I’m the founder of Standing Tall.

Over the last 14 years I’ve worked with clients helping them build personalized yoga practices for their spinal conditions.

I myself have scoliosis and a long spinal fusion from T5-L4 that was done to “correct” my scoliosis. I study, practice and have trained in Iyengar yoga and am certified as a Yoga Therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists as well as having certification as a Yoga for Scoliosis trainer by the pioneering Senior Iyengar yoga teacher Elise Browning Miller. I was taught directly by the legendary BKS Iyengar in the Therapeutics class in Pune, India.

I have also studied the Schroth Method of PT for Scoliosis.

After teaching and apprenticing for multiple years at Yoga Union for Back Care and Scoliosis in NYC, in 2015 I co-found and am a worker/owner of Samamkaya Back Care and Scoliosis Collective where I am also a board member.

Prior to all of this I was a member of the first graduating class @ the University of Pennsylvania to receive a Masters degree in Applied Positive Psychology with Dr. Martin Seligman where I learned about the conditions and processes that contribute to well-being, flourishing and optimal human functioning.

My husband Brian and I have 2 daughters who were born naturally, without the use of any pain medications.

The study of living well; peacefully and vibrantly, with scoliosis, spinal fusion and other spinal pathologies is my daily passion.

I empower my clients to work with their specific scoliosis, spinal fusions and other spinal pathologies so that they can move well and live optimally.
