Yoga for Brest Cancer Wichita KS
Come Into Clarity
Yoga offers powerful self-healing tools for women with breast cancer—from diagnosis and treatment through recovery. How you practice yoga is as important as what you practice, so be sure to:
Balance effort with relaxation.
Treat yourself kindly.
Challenge yourself—but never strain in a pose.
Consult your physician if you have any questions about the appropriateness of any of these postures.
Incorporate any or all of these poses into your daily healing routine, in any order that makes sense to your body and emotions at that moment.
Legs on the Chair Pose (viparita karani)
Lie on your back, and put your legs on a chair in front of you. The chair height should allow your but- tocks and lower back to rest comfortably on the floor. Stay here with your arms outstretched or on your belly for as long as you like, breathing normally (or try the three-part yoga breath below).
Option: Lie on the floor with your legs up the wall instead.
Benefits: Great for insomnia, worry, and nausea.
Fish Pose (matsyasana)
Place two foam blocks on your mat a few inches apart. Rest your head on one, and place the other between your shoulder blades. Open your arms out to the sides, and relax completely, breathing normally (or try the three-part yoga breath below.)
Benefits: Releases tension postmastectomy by stretching the front of the shoulders and chest, and lifting the spirits.
Cow Face Pose (gomukhasana)
Reach your right hand behind your back with palm facing outward, and bend your elbow so your hand is between your shoulder blades. Now, lie down on your back, knees bent, feet flat on the floor. Gently roll the shoulder down toward the floor—a very big stretch for those with tight shoulders. If this is too intense, slide your hand down toward the small of your back.
Benefits: Stretches the front of the chest, opens the shoulder, and lifts the spirits.
Eagle Pose (garudasana)
Sit on your heels (or stand up). Bring your right arm underneath your left, and wrap your forearms around each other. You may or may not be able to touch your hands together. Inhale your hands away from your face; exhale your hands toward your face. Do this several times, and reverse arm position (left arm underneath).
Option: Too much of a stretch? Wrap your arms around your chest, and give yourself a hug. Extend your arms out to the side as you inhale; now exhale and give yourself another hug. Reverse arms. Do this several times, adding a smile to your face.
Benefits: Excellent for external rotation of the shoulder, which helps post-surgery. Also helps you honor and love yourself just the way you are.
Arms Overhead (urdhva hastasana)
Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart. Lengthen your spine so that your shoulders are over your hips, ears are over your shoulders, and chin is parallel to the ground. Release your tailbone toward your heels. Inhale, raise your arms up toward the sky, keeping your shoulders relaxed. Exhale, bring your arms back down. Re...

39th Annual Historical Dainty
Dates: 7/27/2013 – 7/27/2013
The Dainty contest was first introduce to Germantown by German immigrants that settled in Germantown in the 1860's. The children's game at that time was revised in 1971 for adults 45 and older. It was revised by Mr. George Hauck and Mr. Charlie Vittner for a customer appreciation day for Mr. Haucks' family store, which is still in operation today, since 1912. The game consist of a 3" stick tapered on each end and a 3' stick tapered on one end. Object of the game is to lay the smaller stick on the road and hit the tip of it by using the larger stick making it airbourne. The person that hits it the longest distance win's the huge trophy. The shortest hit hops the distance of the longest hit on one foot with a basket of lemons.There is always live music from various bands on a yearly basis, the best homemade bologna snadwich's, good ole pickles, potato chips and cotton candy for the children, and always very cool refreshemnts for the adults. It is now played in the area of Schnitzelburg, which was incoroprated in 1971 as well. Feel free to contact me Gary Allen @1-502- 551-2402, for futher details if needed.
