Ayurveda Marma Points for Body, Mind & Spirit Course at The Sivananda Yoga Ranch
Marmas are special Ayurvedic energy points on the body similar to acupuncture points. Through manipulating them we can direct our Prana or vital energy for health, wellbeing and personal transformation. Marmas are connected to the Chakras and nadis of Yoga and can be used for balancing both body and mind. The condition of marmas is an important diagnostic tool in Ayurveda. At marma sites toxins, stress and negative emotions get lodged and are held, sometimes for years. Disease is reflected in pain, blockage or swelling these areas even before it may manifest outwardly in the full range of disease symptoms. Relieving pain, blockage or swelling at marma sites is an important therapeutic aid and one of the first stages of many ayurvedic treatments.
In this course, students are immersed in learning, living and loving Ayurveda and Yoga, with emphasis on Marma Chikitsa (Acupressure Therapy). Marma is a Sanskrit word that translates as vital, hidden or secret. There are 117 marmani (plural) located over the body where arteries, veins, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles meet. They are imbued with pure consciousness and life force (prana). Each marma has multiple healing actions for body, mind and spirit.
Isvari, with her compassionate and charismatic way of teaching, will cover the basic principles of Ayurveda, the relationship of marma points with yoga asanas, help one discover their Prakruti (constitution) and Vikruti (current state), learn Dinacharya (personal daily practice), tongue, face and hand assessment and so much more. You are invited to come and say “yes” to the transformational experience this class has to offer. Anyone with a heart-felt desire to help loved ones, clients or patients, will enjoy learning this simplistic hands on therapy. You will leave feeling inspired and rejuvenated with helpful information that can be implemented into your life. Precious jewels of information and hands on therapy you won’t want to miss.
