Masterclass - Gut Health, Nourish Your Second Brain - 9 Feb 2022

9 February, 2022
(Registration open till December 2025)

Why is gut health so important? 60% of your immune system lies within your gut! Get this part right and you will feel physically and mentally clear, alert, have great memory and have bags of energy!
 
Why is the gut called the ‘second brain’?
 Because the enteric nervous system relies on the same type of neurons and neurotransmitters that are found in the central nervous system, some medical experts call it our ‘second brain’. This means that when you are worried and anxious, it affects your gut and transversely, if you eat too many foods that lack nutrient value such as fast foods, leftovers, those with high sugar content, it will affect the way you think!
 
Agni and Ama
Learn about why your digestive fire (agni) is key to health and well-being. Ama is ‘undigested food’ that is a causative factor of many of today’s health issues, from the common cold to heart conditions, fatigue, and some auto-immune conditions.
 
This session will help you understand how to super-charge the gut in simple ways using the Ayurveda five pathways. We will explore the power of specific movement, foods, supplements, therapies and relevant lifestyle approaches that will balance your specific body type (dosha).
 
Join the experts for an hour of power that will radically transform the way you eat and the way you think!

We had a really great day yesterday.  The mixture of yoga, relaxation, cooking demonstrations and eating was just right.  It has left me wanting to know more about doshas and how yoga and food can balance someone.  We also loved the partner poses, beautiful and fun.

Thanks so much for such a wonderful weekend. I really enjoyed connecting with you all again.
 
I know a lot about the topics discussed but hearing them spoken about with such passion by a group of experts really helped to clarify a number of points I was not completely sure about. I found it very motivating and gave me a greater understanding of why I need to do certain practices. I do most of the practices already so I don't really need to add anything. I would like to know more about the herbs that might be useful for me specifically but I would need a personal consultation for that. 
 
Thank you for such an information packed and motivating weekend. I am looking forward to looking all the materials in the course.

Ayurveda Retreat

Booking myself on to the Dru Ayurvedic Weekend Retreat is one of the best spontaneous decisions I’ve made in a while. I have a reputation for leaving things until the last minute, in this case I booked my place just an hour before it began! I guess that’s one of the benefits of an online course - I didn’t have to physically get there, just make sure I was out of my PJs before the Zoom meeting went live!!! 
After a few weeks of lockdown and spending perhaps a little too much time reading and watching the news, this online retreat gave me a much needed boost of positivity. It was wonderful to connect with all the other people who were attending, to see so many smiling faces, some new and some familiar. 
The content of the course was superbly presented - a good balance of ‘live’ face to face information sharing, question and answer sessions, some ‘live’ yoga, meditation and chanting and then a series of pre recorded videos to watch. We were given plenty of short breaks throughout the day and a nice long lunch break, time to eat, read our notes, watch the videos and get outside for some fresh air.
Alongside the Zoom live video there was excellent support for anyone with technical problems, via the chat box, email or telephone. The chat was also a place to ask questions and share information.
The Dru Team did a great job of putting this weekend retreat together and I wouldn’t hesitate in joining them for another online course in the future. Obviously if I had the choice I’d prefer to be there in person, but this really is a great alternative until we can do that.
