Yoga & Nutrition
February 17 – March 17, 2023

We think of digestion as starting in the stomach, but digestion is a complex interaction of various systems of the body that include your brain, mouth/teeth, stomach, gastrointestinal tract, also liver, pancreas, kidneys, and endocrine system. When one aspect of this network is not functioning properly, it can throw the whole digestive system out of balance as well as your immune and nervous systems. Pent up stress or emotions can also cause upset stomach, indigestion and contribute to digestive issues. In this holistic series, we’ll look at how yoga practice and nutrition can be used to heal your gut and lead to optimal health.
