In brief: Yoga is helpful

Anyone who has a spinal problem with benefit from exercise, especially exercises that strengthen your core muscles.
Yoga is one example of an exercise that builds core strength. It will not correct or alter your scoliosis in any way, but is very helpful for reduction in back pain that may accompany scoliosis.
