This fulfilling weekend is offered to all those who are seeking to understand more about their holistic well-being as it relates to digestive gut health. Aimed to bring awareness of the dynamic energies within that sustain body, mind, and spirit, this retreat delves into gut health as it relates to the digestive system, as well as the fascinating importance of the body’s microbiome.
Though the progression of time has the capacity for beneficial change, it is often only when we come back to our (humanities) historical and traditional roots that we can begin a culture of awakening. This weekend will bring together the discipline of Ayurvedic wisdom, the evidence based benefits and practice of mindful eating, as well as the power of Kundalini Yoga for complete digestive wellbeing.
Microbiome, though not entirely “us” are an influential part of us. As holistic beings, we are a complex system in which we, much like the rhino needs the oxpecker, have a symbiotic relationship with the microorganisms (microbiota) that live in us and on us. The full array of these microorganisms being called the microbiome, and they affect us in many more ways than you may first expect. (Read more here)
This complete morning will immerse you in inner body sense and insight as based in Ayurvedic wisdom. Many health issues are interrelated and indeed reside in the digestive tract. As such this session will bring an enlightening awareness toward the body, mind, spirit connection.
Celia will guide you through many practices that enhance your awareness and felt experience of good digestive health. We will explore meditations that will assist in bring about good gut health, vagal tone and more. Therapeutic yoga asana’s will be taught for specific areas of digestive health, including the lower colon, and enteric nervous system repair. Ayurvedic food and herbs will be explored, both as prebiotics and probiotics. Some simple Ayurvedic nutrition remedies will be combined with modern nutrition guidelines to provide you with some new ways to repair your gut health.
We recognized that many have digestive health issues can have an alienating experience and this weekend we come together to assist one another and to seek further assistance from Celia, who will foster your comprehensive wisdom in wellbeing.
Continue your body, mind, spirit awareness and connection though the practice of mindful eating. Mindful eating is the process of paying attention at each and every meal. Though what we eat is vital, so too is how we eat. There are many times within our culture of busy that we choose to “eat on the run” or, we sit, scoff, and then leave (Read Celia’s article here). This way of living not only detrimental to holistic health, so to it deprives us of vital presence in relationships.
Celia will take you through what it means to mindfully eat, to truly experience presence in food, and to wholly understand what it means to enjoy the essence of sustenance. The health benefits of mindful eating are enormous - from improved vitality and digestion, weight loss, improved outcomes for diabetes type 2 patients and reduction in disordered eating habits…this retreat is for everyone.
Experience a fulfilling experience of the soul in which life’s energies are drawn through your inner most being to aid in realigning and balancing the digestive tract. Though not often overtly recognized in western society, the digestive system, and the nerves that are embedded within it, is an instigator of either health or disease. And ultimately the way in which we view and treat the body comes from heart-felt awareness; this only cultivated through experience.
This day retreat of Kundalini Yoga is designed to enrich your mental, physical, and nervous energies in order to bring balance as well as to nurture knowledge for future practice.
We will explore the use of sattvic foods and lifestyle choices as prescribed by the kundalini yoga tradition. Teachings will also include:
