The “Perfect” Wellness Combo! So, I had a excellent question from a patient. If I do yoga all the time, should I get my spine checked and cleared of interference and stress? I LOVED the query. Yoga is an awesome tool. I know it well and have been practicing aspects of yoga for almost 20 years. I’ve taught yoga. I’ve lived its fundamentals, and still do.
It’s an amazing resources that will help you feel good, heal yourself, and bring more of who you’re in the world. Yoga has many facets – and some of these include the physical postures which we think of when we think of yoga. These postures are wonderful to stretch our muscles, connective tissues, ligaments, joints, and heads. Yoga gives a tremendous way to radically improve our breathing capacity that has enormous spillover effects into our health and lifestyle.
Like any physical activity, yoga does include wear and tear on the body. Yoga is probably my number one recommendation for a wellness and exercise regiment that enhances strength, increases flexibility, and builds endurance WHILE radically reducing the effects of stress on our bodies. There’s a TON of great research on this. Having said all that, I’ve worked with LOTS of yogis who have injured themselves throughout their clinic. Furthermore, I’ve worked with many a souls who just can’t fully engage in a yoga practice because there’s been so much damage over a lifetime to their own bodies and spines.
Before they could even safely enter into yoga, a number of these folks will need to experience healing in their spines and a recovery of the harm done until they can safely participate in a yoga practice. As we keep our yoga practices, we should stick with it week in, week out. There’s no ceiling on how far you can go with it and the dramatic effects it may have in your life.
The same goes for maintaining a clear spine free from disturbance. When our spines are clear we can cure pain, change anxiety, and experience greater clarity, energy, energy, attention, gratitude, and purpose. We connect readily with ourselves and others and obviously feel ourselves flowing with life, as opposed to against it. Who wouldn’t want more flexibility, simplicity, grace, link, and focus in life? The solution is obvious – if you’re even remotely sane, you’d want much more that goodness. As our spines stay clear, our yoga enhances and as our yoga enhances we want less and less spine care. We get healthy and STAY healthy for a lifetime.
Real wellness and health are all about feeling empowered. You WANT to feel in control of your health and you need to feel you can get resources inside of you whenever you will need to feel good, break through personal barriers and to live your dream life. The combination of yoga and viatlistic chiropractic are excellent at producing empowerment from within. Yoga and chiropractic share a gorgeous philosophy. Health, radiance, and energy come from “Above, Down and Inside, Out” What that indicates is that the health and energy we hunt comes form inside of us and through our connection to Source.
These to health applications are the most effective and quickest route to an enabled, clean, healthy, and happy body and mind. We likely should go through a period of healing and clearing, but with sweet practices like yoga, we can keep getting better and better and better all the time. Here’s to your health and your own personal empowerment. To make a happier, healthier, more connected, and more developed humankind through the delivery of cutting edge evidence based health care.
