" All disease begins in the gut."
Good Guts - the latest of our health and wellbeing workshops - is about helping you to get your 'guts' (aka your digestive system) back in order as a strong and healthy baseline to your overall health and wellbeing.
Going beyond good digestion - good guts include a strong gut wall and healthy microbiome, supporting good immunity, good moods, healthy immune responses, decreasing our chances of cancer and autoimmune conditions, and helping reduce any existing disease load we may already have.
Come along and take part in a powerful afternoon that includes:
- current on-point information,
- ancient wisdom,
- yoga and meditation practices
....all focussed on getting your guts 'going and glowing' with good health, so that you are empowered to live your life vibrantly, in a healthier, more vibrant body.
This afternoon session is perfect for you if you are struggling with gut issues- such as bloating, IBS, leaky gut, food mal-absorption/allergies - autoimmune conditions, poor immunity, cancer, joint disease, skin issues... the list goes on.
What is now being verified scientifically is that many health issues can be supported, avoided and potentially healed by addressing the health and functioning of our guts.
Together we will explore:
- easy to implement lifestyle tips to help you heal and support your gut function,
- do-able yoga and meditation to support your bodies ability to self regulate and self heal - functions that can be compromised or even lost when our guts are leaky.
Nourishment from food depends upon two powers: the ability to receive food
and the power to transform that food into nutrients.
In our modern world, many of our food sources are now too processed or marred by poor soils, genetic modification, chemical fertilisers, pesticides, fungicides and over farming that depletes the land of nutrients... which means less nutritional value in those plants for us too.
The old saying "You are what you eat" no longer suffices: our glaring reality is that we are what we eat eats...and that includes the plants. Another old medical saying - death begins in the bowel - is proving statistically to be true.
GOOD GUTS: we will look at the phenomenon that is commonly called 'Leaky Gut' - or intestinal permeability syndrome, for the more medically inclined among us. This is where our gut wall has become too permeable, leading to malfunction in the intestinal tight junctions, creating imbalances in our microbiome and allowing toxins, microbes and poorly digested food particles into our bloodstream.
When this happens it causes inflammation throughout your body, which set us up for many non-genetic diseases.
Again - all disease begins in the gut.
QUESTION: Are you ready to actively participate in enhancing your health and wellbeing??
In this workshop we will look at all of the major factors that trigger Leaky Gut, and ways in which we can help our microbiome and gut to recover their function - so your digestion, transformation and excretion systems work well and support you to reduce your risk of disease.
An important thing to remember in all this is that there is hope: your gut lining CAN heal, and chronic disease can actually resolve.
This session is for you if you are looking to learn about ways you can support yourself to reduce your risk of dis-ease states - from the common cold, through autoimmune conditions to cancer - and support yourself better with any existing conditions.
We know - there is a lot of information out there, there is no 'one answer', the causes are as multilayered as the potential solutions and the key for you is not necessarily the key for me.
~ KNOWLEDGE IS EMPOWERMENT ~
And there is hope, there are great (read: actually helpful, not just the latest fad) and easy things you can be doing everyday to help and support yourself - from the foods you eat, to things you do. Even daily meditation is a powerful part of the equation - it helps you have a clear mind & make better life choices, as well as supporting your bodies natural healing capacities.
~ ACTION IS TRANSFORMATION ~
We will share:
- SIMPLE, SMART techniques that you can instantly integrate into your daily life
- DYNAMIC YOGA to support digestive health and destress your systems (chronic stress = disease)
- POWERFUL MEDITATION & BREATHWORK practices that will help you to reset your parasympathetic nervous system - so you can 'rest and digest - feed and breed"
Importantly, we use these techniques and practices in our own lives - we know they work, we know they are doable, we know the challenges and ways to help you make it work for you.
– enhance your assimilation and digestion of life - good food, good mood – increase energy levels & stamina – boost immunity - speed recovery - reduce joint pain and excess weight

Natalie and Brie are a dynamic teaching and healing duo - Natalie has been an acupuncturist for over 25 years with over 10 years experience lecturing in subjects such as food as medicine; Brie has been moving energy and teaching kundalini yoga & meditation for well over 15; we are both experienced educators/trainers in our respective fields and we LOVE bringing this knowledge to you intelligently, engagingly, and usefully.
Between us we bring you a wealth of experience and information gleaned from the medical and alternative health worlds; deliver it clearly (untangling the jargon and not forgetting the odd belly laugh), all with the deep understanding that comes from doing this work ourselves, on ourselves as well as our clients.
As holistic practitioners, we love to teach people how to integrate traditional food medicine and yogic techniques with current scientific evidence to motivate individuals and communities to eat well, live well and inspire others to live healthy lives.
We know that we all learn best by example - we live what we teach, not always 'perfectly' - whatever that is - always in a real life way, and always from our hearts.
