Do you suffer from digestive issues?
Have you noticed that it’s not all about what you eat?
Do you need to recover a life, and love, affirming relationship with your body?
I’m Flo and I’d love to help you find your gut healing yoga practice with my carefully designed 4-week video series.
Yoga for Gut Health & Healing specifically focuses on the inner world of digestion and how we can reconnect with this fascinating system in a healthful way, whilst teaching you to harness your intuition and become your own gut healing guru.
This 4-part series is deeply healing for those suffering with digestive issues, such as inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, and all kinds of dyspepsia.
This course combines physical exercise and movement that is healthful and not harmful to those with delicate bellies and bowels, and mindful techniques that alleviate the anxiety and fear that surrounds chronic digestive distress. Plus, I can be here for you if you need any specific advice for your personal needs.
The belly-brain connection
The word “Yoga” means “union”: the union of the self with the universe through the union of the mind and the body. Hence, practicing yoga gives us the opportunity to reconnect the mind and body in positive ways.
In Ayurveda as well as other alternative medical systems, the gut is considered the “second brain” due to the close relationship is has with our psycho-emotional states. Recent scientific studies have also found further evidence to reveal that there are a highly significant number of neurones (brain-cells) in the gut.
[Fun fact, there are more neurones in the human gut than in a cat’s head!]
The gut-brain axis along with the microbiome are now gathering momentum in scientific research, yet the ancient practice of yoga has always held many techniques and technologies to cope with, and possibly help in healing, mind-bowel “dis-order” by allowing the mind, body and especially belly, return to harmony.

Who am I?
I started teaching this course in a holistic health clinic in Brighton, then brought it to London when I moved the following year. Now I’ve finally filmed it to offer out to gut-healing students world-wide.
I’ve really enjoyed the classes and I’m sorry it’s at an end.
Thank you for helping me fall in love with yoga and taking my hand on my first steps to truly understanding how it can help me. For showing me that I can trust my body and that I have some control even on bad days. I am strong.
I wish you love and healing and hope your belly stays calm.
Overall it was a lovely experience! It would be great to see another session/course maybe expanding more on what we learnt (like a level 2) and developing our knowledge more on the chakras and how they correlate with gut health as this was so interesting and would love to find out more!
And follow me on instagram @dragonflo_yoga to see what I’m up to, gut healing and beyond!

Can I take this course if I’ve never done yoga before?
I have inflammation in my digestive system, will this exercise aggravate it?
What if I don’t have time to practice the weekly sequence in time for the next video?
What if some of the moves cause me discomfort, how will I know if the practice is right for me or not?
If they cause you pain or unease then they are not right for you at this time. This doesn’t mean they are “wrong” for you, it may be a good one for you to come back to. Discomfort isn’t always bad – sometimes it is the more challenging poses that we need the most as they help us to unblock areas that are tight or that our minds don’t have much neural connection to this part of the body. Pain on the other hand is a no-no. But trying is always worth it, as long as you take it very slowly and mindfully and stop as soon as you feel unsafe. If you are unsure, taking the course privately with me so I can make the practice bespoke to your individual needs is strongly advised.
What if the course makes my digestive problems worse?
Will this course completely cure my digestive illness?
However, according to the definition of “cure” as coming from the Latin, “curare” meaning “to take care of”, then we are certainly taking care of your digestion in this course.
I can also recommend complimentary wonderful therapies/therapists to help you in other aspects of your healing journey i.e. nutrition, acupuncture, aromatherapy etc, and will provide ongoing resources for supporting you and your gut health as much as I can.
