The Countless Benefits of a Regular Yoga Practice

For me, a regular yoga practice offered much needed relief for an aching back from a serious injury that happened many, many years ago.  

One day while out having fun with friends, I was in a parasailing accident and I broke my back in five places.  For years, I lived with chronic pain.  Chiropractors couldn't work on me and doctors offered not much more than pills to relieve the pain.  On my own, I discovered what a blessing implementing yoga into my daily life would be.  I never imagined I would one day own my own studio and would be able to share this life changing method of exercise with those around me.

Regular yoga practice in a class setting with qualified instructors offers many benefits even without a serious injury or pain.  To name just a few:
  • Teaches you to center yourself and encourages you to be able to cope with the reality of life.
  • Cleans the blood of waste material
  • Loosens muscles and joints
  • Increases blood flow
  • Builds bone and muscle strength
  • Increases flexibility and balance
  • Decreases blood pressure and pulse rate
  • Improves posture
  • Improves concentration, mood and memory
I welcome you to stop in and read or discuss more about the benefits of a yoga practice and experience it for yourself by taking a class with one of our expert instructors.  

Believe me, I never thought I would be able to do it (considering my back injury) but by taking it slow and dedicating to a regular practice, I have been able to accomplish so much and come so far.  Whether you are a very beginner and don't see this as being "you" or a novice who wants to expand and push their limits, you will benefit.  We have the right classes for all experience levels and strive to make everyone who enters our yoga studio feel comfortable and good about their own yoga journey.

Why Meditation?

I was hesitant at first with countless excuses as to why a regular meditation practice wasn’t for me.  I was too easily distracted.  My children and pets would never let it happen.   I was too busy, too tired, too wired, too…you name it, I had it.

One day I took a challenge to meditate for just a few minutes twice per day for 30 days.

At first, it wasn’t for me.  I couldn’t concentrate, I couldn’t sit still, my mind wandered (I actually thought more about how it wasn’t working than anything else).  But, I had accepted the challenge and I was not about to give up.  So I kept at it and kept at it and kept at it until one day I realized, it had changed my life.

Most days I no longer struggle with getting into a meditative state (although sometimes I still do) and each day seems to feel deeper and deeper and more and more powerful.  I feel healthy and balanced and clear.  I haven’t lost my high metabolism (it might even be higher) but I do have the ability to keep calm as I deal with my regular daily life no matter what the struggles.  I believe that can happen for each of you as well.  Practicing in mindfulness meditation has opened my whole world and created a much more balanced me.

Besides my own personal experience, there are many other benefits to a regular mediation practice such as lowered heart rate, increase in a general calmness, lower oxygen consumption, increased blood flow...the list goes on and on and on.  I invite you to come on in to Kahanu Yoga & Meditation Spa, read more about what others have to say and discover for yourself the life changing benefits of implementing your own practice in peace.

Far Infrared Heat in Sauna or Yoga

SpaCapsule Massage

Why would someone be interested in spending time in a SpaCapsule?  We think a better question is
"Why wouldn't they?!?"  

Equipped with soothing music, aromatherapy and visual meditations, an aqua massage experience in our Spa Capsule is like nothing you ever dreamed.  You control the area and intensity.  Choose a deep tissue massage concentrated in a specific area, a light relaxing massage from shoulders to feet or anything in between.  

SpaCapsule sessions provide numerous benefits but we've listed a few of our favorites below:

Privacy - Many people do not like getting a massage from a physical person due to the fact that there is no privacy and the thought or feeling of someone else touching them is incredibly uncomfortable.  With aqua massage, the
setting is private, no other person is involved (or getting into your personal space), and clothing is not removed.

Relaxation - With 36 jets spraying your body at a variety of angles and continuing to go over the body numerous times, the spa capsule will offer you full body relaxation.  Coupled with meditation/spa music and a beautiful setting, relaxation is pretty much guaranteed.  

Spot Treatments - Our aqua massage system can be paused at any point on the body offering complete focus on any one area whenever you need it and you control the intensity of the massage.  This is particularly beneficial to those experiencing back or neck pain or sore muscles from a challenging yoga workout.

Time - Aqua massage sessions last a total of 20 minutes per session making them much more convenient to fit into your busy life.  Concerned that 20 minutes isn't enough to fully relax and receive the benefits?  We challenge you to give it a try.  We believe you will find it 20 minutes well spent!

Cost - With the cost of a 20 minute session being $40 (or much less if you purchase in a package), you can enjoy the benefits of relaxing massage at a fraction of the cost of hiring a massage therapist.  The monthly cost of our sessions make your weekly massage much less than the price of one one hour appointment with a massage therapist.

Health - The benefits of aqua massage also include increased blood circulation and oxygen absorption, an increase in range of motion along with a decrease in inflammation and muscle tension along with an increase in endorphins. 

- Many people claim a very noticeable decrease in the appearance of cellulite after regular sessions in the spa capsule.   Stimulating the lymphatic system through regular massage helps toxins to be circulated into the elimination channels of the body for release.  The spa Capsule can be paused on specific areas of concern thus targeting areas of cellulite.  Using this method for only a few minutes a few times per week will help to break down the fatty deposits that cause the dimpled appearance.

Feel Great - Improved sleep, reduced muscle soreness, pain reduction, decreased muscle spasms and increased flexibility (the perfect compliment to your yoga or hot yoga practice).

Convinced yet?  We thought so!  Book an appointment here, call or stop in  and you too can experience far infrared heat in a yoga practice or in the private sauna or your own low cost private massage to feel relaxed and calm anytime.  Additional literature and consulting is available at Kahanu Yoga & Meditation Spa.
