Yoga, Somatics and the Gut Brain Axis

Yoga, Somatics and the Gut Brain Axis.
A workshop for healing the mind and belly.
Join Ma Premaloka Anand, Yoga Teacher, Trainer and Yoga Therapist, on a journey to
create space and live your highest potential.
Did you know that your Gut has a brain ? And it talks to your main brain through tiny microbes via the vagus nerve.
Growing gut microbiome research call this the gut-brain connection.
The digestive tract also has its own nervous system called the enteric nervous system (ENS), which is found on the walls of your gastrointestinal tract. The gut receives signals from the brain via the autonomic nervous system. Tiny molecules travel along
the vague nerve, most significantly serotonin.
Serotonin is the major hormone associated with mood regulation, and lower levels of serotonin have been correlated with depression, anxiety, stress.
Many scientific studies have shown that yoga has a hugely beneficial effect on the gut microbiome and specific yoga postures, breathwork and meditation are excellent for restoring gut health and for activating the parasympathetic nervous system , sending positive signals to the gut.
This workshop will combine specific asanas for gut health followed, by somatic movements to release long held trauma and emotion within the belly and body, complimented by specific breathwork and meditations for healing and specific Ayurvedic techniques and wisdom.
Join us to activate, release , restore and repair.
