Digestive issues are widespread and prove difficult to address through mainstream medicine. Senior yoga teacher Charlotte Watts sheds light on the connection between the gut and the brain, explains the links between stress, trauma and digestive issues and demonstrates how yoga with its focus on stilling the mind can have profound effects on conditions such as IBS, IBD, acid reflux, colitis, diverticulitis and more. Breath awareness allows the breath to drop into the belly and diaphragm, essential for good digestive function and understanding the fascial connections within the viscera help shape movement that enables optimal function.


 


Fully illustrated with clear diagrams and instructions, this volume provides yoga, movement and medical professionals with a solid understanding of the digestive system in relation to breath, mindfulness, posture, anatomy, movement, stress and trauma. It helps them to apply this knowledge to their practice and teaching approach.

The Psychology of Yoga and the Gut. 5. The Practices. 6. Considerations for Specific Conditions. Supporting Therapies. Bibliography. References. Index.

Charlotte Watts is a senior yoga teacher and award-winning Nutritional Therapist, specialising in stress related and digestive issues. She is a popular speaker at conferences and events and has authored several books, most recently The De-Stress Effect (2015).
