"I am enjoying my new awareness with my studies. My husband who is supportive and skeptical in many ways told me that I look more \"vibrant\" in his words than ever in our 21 years together.
I feel like I am bursting with bodily awakening. This is so powerful!
At this time of year, I want to share my gratitude for being a part of this cohort and transformative education!"

"I have a better understanding of my place in the world. Cultural paradigms are illuminated in a new light through Ayurveda. Ayurveda provides the nature that I have always been drawn to. It has always been a truth for me and learning through the framework of this course has laid a new foundation for being."

"I love the joyful belly website and send a lot of people there as well. Did you know that you can become an affiliate and get reimbursed for referrals? The information is amazing. I have my client's create their quizzes and forward them to me, just like we're doing in class. John Joseph Immel and the rest of the gang at JB are GREAT!!!"

"The class, has brought a certain calm to me, I have experienced my mental warrior energy, where as before this iíve only experienced my physical warrior energy. To absorb this information is a lot for a 24 year old to take in but the fact that I gave it my best, showed me what I am truly capable of and I am seeing the outcome of giving your all to something you dreamed about doing. I feel strengthened, and motivated to see the world and my part in it in through a more experienced lens. Iíve learned how to balance, school, relationships, work, and play in a whole new way. I have a deeper respect for teachers, and think that we have been spoiled to have such knowledgeable and nurturing teachers to learn from, couldnít thank the Joyful belly team enough."

"As far as the course, it has been an eye opening experience for me , as a pediatric gastroenterologist and also being of Indian origin. There is so much that I have been doing as an allopathic physician for the past 22 years and wished that I had stepped in to Ayurveda sooner. Not too late however
Sometimes I think it is harder for someone like me with an M.D degree to understand some of the concepts because what I have in my head ( western concept) gets in the way . I am working on it.....
On the other hand, once I grasp the Ayurvedic concept , understanding why, how and what should be done is very easy and I am enjoying that very much .
Thank you !!"

"These were so helpful. Even as a practitioner this was not something that I had a lot of experience coming into the class and the things I discovered during these exercises were amazing."
"I just met with my 88 year old client who is having trouble with nausea. I explained the Ayurvedic perspective you discussed in the free call and how unexpressed anger, guilt or shame could be a possible cause. A light bulb went off in her head and she revealed childhood traumas that had cause the same feeling of nausea in her stomach. This new perspective gave her insight into her current condition."

"As I continue to work on my paper, I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude for what I Ave learned this past nine months. Honestly, it is just amazing. John Joseph Immel, how can I even create a thesis that is more or better than the lecture you gave us regarding constipation? How?? When I read your words, I can visualize what is happening in the gut, I can feel the anguish and the straining of the intestines, and I can vision the alarm of the heart and nerves as they frantically call out forcrelief. I do not mean to be dramatic, but I truly just want to have a half-page Thesis that says, \"What John said.\""

"I never realized so much of what we struggle with all starts with digestion. Joyful Bellyís program is beautifully designed. It takes you through the entire digestive tract, guiding you to a better understanding of its different components, while teaching and applying ayurvedic concepts as they apply to ailments that much of society struggles with."

"I have become more aware through Ayurveda and now I eat with my digestion in mind, rather than calories."

"This was a very well-spoken presentation. I love the thorough, yet simple way that ideas were explained and expounded upon. Going through each of the body channels (srotas) and reviewing the Sanskrit name and connecting each to either excess or deficient slow guna was a very helpful way to make the information meaningful and applicable. "

"Hi John! The lecture was fabulous! So interesting and informative!!! I really LOVED it! It was very useful info. I am running a weight loss workshop and was able to share so much with them from your teachings. I would love another call on detoxing the body.
