Do you want to be in love with your body again?
On any given day, do you wonder if you will feel well, or if you will feel fatigued, bloated, and irritable?
Are you literally aching to reclaim your health, feel more connected to your true self, and go forward in health and relationships with joy, no matter what age you are?
Do you feel betrayed by your body?
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed and reactive when you are with loved ones and friends?
Is it hard to know what to eat, or have the energy to exercise, or even look in the mirror?
We all grew up without learning how to care for our bodies or understand what it means to be in deep communication with it. We’ve been taught to not trust our judgement when it comes to health or medicine, and that we need to depend upon experts.
To get out of pain, we look for the quick fix and external solutions; that spot-on diagnosis, that one right pill, exotic herb, or new supplement, or that ever illusive secret practice or protocol.
Any of those efforts might be good for you, at least for awhile. Or they might not be good for you.
That’s more than just a nice sounding cliche. To know yourself means unwinding from all the pain and fear and developing an intuitive understanding and intimate relationship with your body. It means creating a relationship with your physiology. It’s about being willing to feel and listen to what you are experiencing— in the moment, in your body, and in your breath.
The gentle power of Unwinding that is featured in The Gut Wellness Course allows you to be present and aware, helping you to build trust in your judgment so you can make better choices, choices that fit who you are at this stage in your life.
And good choices bring opportunities to create radiant health.
Our commitment to you is to guide you through five easy-to-follow learning modules of gentle yet powerful breathing exercises, each paired with one or several touch-for-awareness techniques, for a total of thirteen instructional video sessions.
In each module we also provide audio recordings, allowing you to absorb both the breathing and the touch techniques in a state of deep relaxation so that the learning comes with ease and feels perfectly natural. First you learn by seeing the techniques on video, then, by listening, you can sense in and intuit while practicing.
Later, you can use all the audio together to enjoy a complete 90+ minute Unwinding session without interruption.
And we give you an Action Plan for Gut Health, a series of thought provoking questions, written exercises, and steps that you can take that will help transform your daily life to one of energy and vibrancy!
Using this multi-sensory approach engages your nervous system’s various pathways, and you will literally reconnect—at a deep, physiological level—your self with your body.
“My journey with Allison began 9 years ago with my daughter but little did I know that I would also greatly benefit from Unwinding, so much so that I have attended multiple workshops and now want to be a health coach. I want to give back as much as Allison has given to me and my family. If you are ready to slow down and heal your belly then this is the practice for you. Cheers to long, slow breaths, in and out!”
“Lateral breathing? As an abdominal massage therapist myself, I hadn't heard of that! This sparked a curiosity in me to take Allison's workshop, and I'm so happy I did! The breathing and touch techniques provided a new understanding and depth to the words "self-care." I came away feeling connected to my core and much more grounded. I highly recommend Allison Post’s teachings!”
"Unwinding has been my go-to guide to help my clients connect and heal the center of their body with their own hands and breath. The creators approach the subject in a practical, personal, and informative way. They invite anyone to develop a gentle and loving relationship with their internal organs, digestion, and the emotional field of their abdomen. The Gut Wellness Guide and Course are important teachers, reminding us how to drop back into our true selves, in contrast to the lure of cyberspace."

And you’ll be invited to participate in our current series of live group coaching video calls. New students are always welcome!
In this first module you will learn the First Steps in Unwinding. This will be a gentle invitation to being at ease with the feel of your belly and to once again enjoy your whole, living, breathing body!
In Module Two we continue to explore deeper into the belly and expand our breathing capacity. We will begin to reach our breath into areas that are frozen in most people, to allow space for blood and oxygen to feed the organs and the fascia and other connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments. We will then encourage healthy movement in the large intestine (colon.)
Module Three takes us deeper into the organs that the rib cage protects and that work so very hard for us on a daily basis. Here we deepen our connection between our deep center and the sides of our body, explore the state of health in our digestive organs, and relieve congestion and deep tension.
This is an opportunity for you to breathe and work with an area you most likely have never contacted without the help of a physical or massage therapist—your back and two sets of vital organs that help keep you alive and vital.
This final module brings it all together by connecting the center to the upper and lower body, and by integrating the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of your whole being. Here we learn the complete breathing that ease stress, moves toxicity and waste, enlivens your organs and connective tissues, and, with practice, creates profound relaxation and an easeful experience with living. We also allow time and space for the freedom of an Inner Voice that arises by virtue of inspire-ation and full exhalation, giving expression to your heart’s desires.
And you’ll be invited to participate in our current series of live group coaching video calls. New students are always welcome!.

"The Gut Wellness Course is simply transformative. Simply because the way Allison communicates the method of Unwinding in the book and in her classes is so simple and pure that it speaks deeply to anyone listening. Transformative because the work promotes marked changes in everyone it touches. Unwinding is a tool I have used personally and professionally for many years. You will too."
“The Gut Wellness Course will change the way you breathe, the way you digest your food, and the way you think about your body. Allison gives you practical tools and techniques that integrate your body and activate your gut. With 70% of our immune system coming from the gut, it’s important for all of us to keep it as healthy and happy as possible. Allison has the answer!”
"Unwinding continues to help me be in my body, with health, courage, and joy. When I have been in physical or emotional crisis, its guidance has been essential, and I move from constriction to flowing vitality. Unwinding is my awakening and centering practice, it’s how I begin each day with gratitude."
I’ve been helping others navigate stress and the many problems that come with being in a body for more than thirty years because being healthy and feeling authentically good was something I too had lost along the way and had to relearn.
At nineteen, during my second semester of college, I was beset with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. This was caused by using an intrauterine device (IUD), a form of contraception, that was later removed from the market due to the tragic loss of life of 18 women and the loss of fertility and health for millions of others.
After suffering delirium for three days, I was taken to the hospital and hooked up to IV antibiotics for over a month. The doctors told me that my organs had begun to shut down. Fortunately, I survived, but I had lost my health and vitality.
I was discharged from the hospital with the tragic news that I could not have children and that I would probably have to deal with the consequences of pelvic inflammatory disease throughout my life. Western medicine saved my life and for that I am grateful. But other than being told I was lucky to be alive, I was given little encouragement and no tools. I was still in pain and distress, and had so many digestive and metabolic problems that I did not know where to start.
But for some reason I can’t quite explain, I was inspired to begin studying eastern healing arts, including yoga, meditation, and breathwork. I also began to learn about the importance of sleep, stress reduction, nutrition and fitness.
I had embarked upon a path of wellness that I continue to follow to this day. I am committed to ongoing study and teaching of several of the breathing, healing, meditation, and movement traditions. My explorations have included Somatic Psychology, Hypnotherapy, Asian and Western Bodywork, Chi Nei Tsang Internal Organ Massage, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Yoga, Qi Gong, Dance, Meditation, Craniosacral Therapy, and Functional Medicine. Currently, my specialty is to draw upon the deep wells of modern and traditional medical wisdom to encourage balance and joy in everyday life.
Yet throughout my life, the most potent form of healing for me has been breathing, combined with a meditative form of visceral touch. This put a halt to the distress caused by my illness—the frequent emergency room visits, the need for surgery, and the emotional fallout. I was able to transform my traumatized body into a being that heals itself. I have energy and joy again, and want to teach you how to do the same for yourself.
Reclaim your inherent health! Reclaim your breath and your belly! Join us at The Gut Wellness Course.
"I took an Unwinding class many years ago. Allison is an amazing teacher. Her knowledge and compassion were incredible. I love that I can use all that I learned to help heal myself first (as Allison teaches) and to support my patients in their own healing journeys. And now we have a video/audio course so that many more people can benefit! Thank you!"

"It was a true blessing to find Unwinding when I did. I spent much of my life with chronic constipation and not letting go on an emotional level. I was also plagued with not wanting to experience the painful experiences in my life. Allison in her compassionate and gentle way showed me how important the breath is and how integral to our healing. The method of Unwinding taught me how to breathe and touch into the areas where I was shut off and how to feel those feelings and trust. I began to lose the fear and expand more through the simple, yet profound breathing and touch techniques. I am now living a more vibrant and present life. I have such gratitude for all that I have learned."
