Did you know there's a direct link between our gut and brain? Have you ever felt low when your digestive system isn't at its best?

A few years ago, Laurent was diagnosed with IBS and gastrointestinal issues after a misguided treatment and sadly realised the connection between his condition, his energy, and his mental health.

During this 3-hour workshop, he wants to share his experience and tips and guide you on maintaining this vital part of your anatomy for a healthy state of mind.

Join him for this practical and educative somatic, breathwork, and deeply introspective event, which will explore ways to connect with your lower belly chamber, core muscles, and soft organs, which often support tension, burning sensations, indigestion, and discomfort.

Discover and communicate with the enteric nervous system, which is placed in the abdominal region and is often called our 'second brain'. This system supports digestion and links to our autonomic nervous system through the vagus nerve.

The vagus nerve transmits signals between the brain and the digestive system, helping to regulate various gastrointestinal functions. This connection regulates body functions, promoting calmness, relaxation, and our default sense of well-being.

Learn specific and soothing practices and techniques that promote the release of tension, improved circulation, and crucial abdominal stimulation.

In this therapeutic workshop, engage in slow-moving movements, targeted yoga techniques, specific breathing techniques, meditations, and visualisation techniques that helped Laurent and many of his students deal with their conditions.

Gain insights into the gut-brain connection through deliberate practice, master these skills, and bring your mind and body into quiet harmony using a holistic and practical approach.

Leave the workshop feeling nurtured and relieved in the body, with mental peace and serenity. This 3-hour workshop is for all students and practitioners, regardless of ability level.
