The technicians of Ever Clean Colonics utilize FDA-compliant colon-hydrotherapy devices with single-use tubing to flush away impacted waste. Colon-hydrotherapy sessions begin with a full explanation of the technique and procedures in order to ensure clients feel comfortable. Clients then don a full-length gown to preserve their modesty and keep their tails hidden before lying on a treatment table. For the next 35–45 minutes, separate tubes bring clean water in and waste water out of the colon, potentially disrupting constipation, impacted fecal matter, and gas and bloating.

Revolutionaries also get access to a community that spans from the gym to an online group, providing a resource for advice, support, and camaraderie.
The chief yoga instructors on a staff of dozens, Gina Norman and Stan Woodman aren’t your average couple—or even your average yoga studio owners. A world traveler with a longtime interest in mind-body work, Gina followed her path to Thailand, where she learned the local yoga practice, and then to India, where she studied up on vipassana meditation. Prior to opening Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Center, Stan was a snowboarding addict and decades-long yoga practitioner living in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Today, the two strive to offer “a yoga for everyone,” with a lineup that includes smooth Vinyasa practice, disciplined Ashtanga poses, hot yoga in a 95-degree studio, and family-friendly fitness classes. After working up a sweat exercising or reciting Ulysses in one of the studio’s classes, students can take the heat off with soothing, natural spa services such as massages, body scrubs, and energy healing. With a long menu of pampering therapies, no aspect of the body leaves Kaia wanting for its own treatment, and the onsite vegetarian café’s baked goods, wraps, juices, and smoothies help guests with the other kind of bodily nourishment.
