Ayurvedic Principles for Balancing Gut-Microbiome

November 25 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm CST


Welcome to an enlightening workshop, where we embark on a transformative journey through the time-honoured wisdom of Ayurveda to explore the profound connection between gut health and the microbiome, and the importance of deep oxygenating breath.

Ayurveda, an ancient holistic healing science of health and longevity, views the gut as the foundation of overall well-being, where proper digestion and a balanced microbiome are critical for maintaining harmony in the body, mind, and vitality.

In this workshop, His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda will guide you through the principles and practices that promote gut-microbiome balance, enabling you to unlock the pathway to optimal health.

Discover the Ayurvedic perspective on the intricate relationship between the digestive system and the trillions of microorganisms inhabiting our gut. Learn how Ayurveda recognizes the uniqueness of gut-brain axis and offers dietary guidelines to maintain a healthy gut.

With a focus on practical application, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the art of mindful eating, incorporating Ayurvedic guidelines to enhance nutrient absorption and promote gut health.

We’ll delve into the food preparation of millets that support the gut-microbiome, fostering a harmonious internal environment. By the end of this workshop, you’ll leave empowered with a good understanding of the Ayurvedic approach to gut-microbiome balance.

With practical tools and practices, you’ll be equipped to make conscious choices that enhance digestion, nurture your microbiome, and cultivate lasting well-being with correct breathing.

Join us in this soul-nourishing journey into the heart of Ayurveda’s wisdom and discover how an aligned gut-microbiome relationship can unlock the gateway to vitality, resilience, and harmony within. Embrace the holistic power of Ayurveda and embark on a path towards a balanced and vibrant life.
