Marma Points Therapy Course

with Bharata Surya

August 16 - 18, 2019

Description

This retreat aims to introduce the 107 vital energy centres (Marmas) of our body, their identifications, functions, how to incorporate them in a regular practice of yogic posture. The knowledge can deepen one’s yoga practice and is a good introductory course to energy medicine. This course is designed for yoga teachers, serious yoga students, and health practitioners who are interested in using vital energy centres for healing.

Details

Marma Therapy has ever been one of Ayurveda’s most powerful healing modalities for stress and pain management. Marmas are vital, hidden or secret points found where energy and matter come together or, as one can say, ”where the tissues of the of the body eavesdrop on your internal dialogue”.

Marmas are points that are intelligent and can keep the body in touch with itself and its needs. This specialized massage technique is particularly useful to heal damaged tissue, to detoxify by activating the lymphatic system, to unblock tension from nerves, muscles and joints and to facilitate proper Pranic flow. A rejuvenative, relaxing and revitalising therapy, Marma Points Massage offers a holistic approach as it helps to harmonize body and mind.”
