Are you interested in learning about self-care tools for your digestive health?
Our tummies are one of the most sensitive areas of our bodies. They are at the center of our being, literally our “core”, and lined with hundreds of millions of nerve endings, affecting everything from our immune system to mood. Many factors influence the health of our digestive system, from our external environment, to our internal stress.
Renee Zambo, registered yoga therapist, will lead participants through yoga therapy techniques for healing the digestive system. This will include a series of breathing techniques to stimulate the relaxation response, postures to gently massage and soothe the muscles of the gastrointestinal system, and a mindful eating or drinking exercise to further explore our relationship to food and digestion.
In this workshop you will:
● Learn how stress and other environmental factors shape the health of your gastrointestinal system.
● Lean specific breathing techniques to help reduce stress and feel more grounded in your body.
● Practice yoga postures that soothe and detox the gastrointestinal system.
● Practice a mindful eating exercise (on gluten, dairy, and sugar free food items) or mindful drinking with herbal tea, to explore our relationship to food and cultivate fulfillment.
