Gut Wisdom: Accessing the Power of the Enteric Nervous System

1 Class

The core body isn’t just a physical structure. In fact, our gut has a mind of its own. It’s highly intelligent, and can act independently of the brain and nervous systems. It regulates immunity, inflammation, and emotional health. It also contains a microbiome of incredible sophistication.

In this Masterclass, you’ll learn:

  • what the enteric nervous system is and why it’s so important for our health
  • what gut microbes do and how they communicate
  • how gut inflammation impacts physical and emotional health
  • practical tools for yoga, fitness, contemplative practice, and eating

And we’ll examine this information in light of our self-to-body relationship and the social context of gut health.

Learning Objective:

Participants will understand the psychology, immunology, and social context of the enteric nervous system and gut microbiome, and be able to discuss how nourishing this system improves well-being.
