Health benefits of Yoga

three yoga poses We’re pleased to offer yoga three days a week at the gym at Kambeitz Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center PC. Our yoga instructor, and massage therapist, Michelle Gorny explained some of the benefits of yoga for those who are interested in yoga for health and wellness. 

  • Prevents cartilage and joint breakdown by taking your joints through their full range of motion, even into areas that aren’t used in daily activities. This keeps the joint capsule and cartilage healthy and wards off degeneration.
  • Nourishes your spine through the use of backbends, forward bends, and twists. Disks get their nutrients through these types of movements to stay supple.
  • Builds bone mass. It’s pretty common knowledge that poses like downward dog and upward dog help protect against osteoporosis. But did you know that yoga’s ability to lower stress also lowers your levels of cortisol, which can help keep calcium in your bones?
  • Regulates blood pressure. Just by simply watching your breath, you blood pressure drops.
  • Increases your attention span. Yoga trains your brain with the focus shifted to the sensations you’re feeling in the poses, enhancing your ability to focus outside of class.
  • Decreases built-up tension in limbs. Ever notice how hard you’re gripping the steering wheel, or clenching your jaw for no apparent reason? Practicing yoga brings your awareness to these areas of held tension and allows them to melt.
  • Room to breathe. The breathing techniques taught in yoga help you fully engage your lungs. This allows you to breath in more air, with fewer breath cycles, making your lungs more efficient in delivering oxygen to your tissues.
  • Soothes IBS and other digestive problems. The calming effects of yoga allow the body to focus on digesting your food.
  • Boosts inner strength. Yoga philosophy includes building the resilience to overcome old habits by trying new things. This branch is called ‘tapas,’ Sanskrit for ‘heat.’ Think of it as lighting a fire under your tush to get up and do something!
  • Encourages self care. We are used to the passive care we experience through conventional medicine. Practicing yoga requires you get involved in caring for your own body. No one is going to hold your body in the poses for you! You begin to make the connection that your commitment to moving makes you feel better. You are able to take a huge part in healing your body.

Our yoga classes are 1-2pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and Tuesdays from 7:15-8:15pm.  Our classes are non intimidating and welcome never-ever, beginner, and experienced yogis.

Infographic: Ways to Stretch out During your Workday

We’ve all heard that sitting is the new smoking. Not only are we inactive for hours while sitting at the desk during the average work day, poor posture, and desk ergonomics cause tension in necks, shoulders, wrists, and backs.

This great infographic from a Portland Chiropractor shares some tips for easy stretches that you can do at work to loosen up and move better when you leave your desk.

Prepare for Hiking Season with the Manitou Incline

If your goals are to make it atop a 14er this summer, it’s best to work your way up to that goal.  While the high peaks are still covered in snow, there are some great ways to get some vertical and get in shape for hiking season.

On Saturday, April 23, 2016, Dr Troy Ryan is organizing a meetup group to do the Manitou Incline Trail in Colorado Springs.

Here is some info on what to expect.  Keep in mind this is rated difficult because it’s an elevation climb of 2,000 feet over a mile distance. Parking can be rough out there so I propose we carpool the best we can. Let’s congregate at the clinic Saturday morning at 6AM. There is plenty of parking so you can leave your vehicle and carpool with someone else.

Are you up to the challenge? RSVP to join on meetup.com

Hike Grays and Torreys with some KCHWC Patients and Staff

103_3423It is the perfect time of year to lace up your hiking boots and summit a Colorado 14er!

On Saturday, August 29th, Kambeitz Chiropractic patients and staff will be meeting up to hike Gray’s and Torrey’s Peaks located in Colorado’s front range mountains. Organized by “Trainer Troy,” full details about the event, and to RSVP, are on Meetup.com.

Leading up to the hike, Troy will be giving information on how to truly prepare to hike a Colorado 14er!

This will NOT be a guided hike as the group will be too large and varied to keep together. Rather, participants will meet at the trailhead and from there everybody will be allowed to hike at their own desired pace.
