Our Ayurveda school’s foundational philosophy is built on the belief that every person has the natural ability to heal. We acknowledge the importance of your own experience of transformation in order to support the transformation of another. Because of this, we build our training by first providing you with a powerful healing experience that will take you on a journey into your Self. You will heal in profound ways and experience a potential you may have never known before.

Naturally - from experiencing your own personal transformation - you will be equipped and genuinely moved to support others on their healing journey.
The world is in need of healing.
This training will provide you with the experience and the tools that will allow you to share that priceless gifts of Ayurveda and Breathwork in your own unique and powerful way. You will reconnect to your innate healing gifts and leave this immersion feeling confident to share them with people in your life, whether it is adding them to an already existing wellness profession, sharing with loved ones, or developing a healing practice of your own.

"I was seeking an official way to share my passion for ayurveda with others. What I ended up with was the personal transformation I didn’t even know I needed. Working with Dhyana and Vira was like sprinkling magic fairy dust on the spiritual and ayurvedic practices I had already been doing. I am so grateful the universe opened it’s loving arms and offered these two to enrich my journey. I feel so very empowered and well equipped to coach others and share these amazing gifts."

- Jess K 

"Dhyana and Vira are pure magic.  Their wisdom, compassion and kindness are the hallmarks of their training style.  They make a rich and complex subject accessible to their students.  They will take you in-depth and teach you practical ways to apply your new-found knowledge.  They created a community to grow, learn and flourish.  Life-affirming sums up this very important training.  I thank God every day for putting them in my path."

- Radha Jodie


Marma Therapy is a part of the greater Ayurvedic & Dhanurvedic (Martial) sciences, understood and documented by warriors, sages and healers from bygone ages and used as a powerful tool for healing and martial arts. Marma are vital energy points located throughout the body, seen as gateways to assess whats taking place in the inner recesses of the body, just like a simple vehicle dashboard that lets us know where our body is functioning optimally and poorly. Marma points are also reservoirs of healing energy and cellular intelligence and when points are pressed consciously the innate healing potential within each human being is activated.


We all experience stress in our lives and when we aren’t able to be fully present to “digest” an experience, it stores itself in our body to be processed at a later time. All aspects of our body and mind are porous just like a sponge. Marma pressure points put healthy pressure on the tissues of the body to release stress from them - as well as bring fresh energy and communication to that part of the body - so that it may heal.


Ayurveda and Marma therapy give us the tools to process the unprocessed stresses stored in the mind, emotional body and physical tissues. Those experiences then turn into energy that fuels us, helping us to grow and expand our ability to love and to serve in any situation.


In western psychology, as well as the deeper vedic teachings, we can understand that all of our unprocessed past experiences; our traumas, pain, heartbreaks, and joys… every single thought, memory, emotion… everything!, is stored somewhere within the body. If we don’t unpack these stored memories, then we move forward in our life deeply conditioned and effected by the past.

Breath and Consciousness are intimately interwoven.

As we breathe more deeply into our bodies, we are inviting awareness into parts of ourselves (or our past) that have long been stored away. As we bring awareness to the areas that have been hidden, our bodies innate healing abilities kick in; we release what has been holding us back, and we step closer into our full potential.

The process itself uses very simple means: with the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath with this technique along with the music in the room to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing process of the individual’s psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content brought forth is unique to each person and for that particular time and place. While recurring themes are common, no two sessions are ever alike.

Many practitioners feel this breath work provides a direct, replicable, physical experience of Divine Love through the saturation of the body with prana.


This program will provide a complete foundation of the science of Marma Therapy & Prema Breathwork in both the underlying philosophy and its practical application. You will be provided the tools to confidently share transformative lifestyle practices and self-healing therapies. You will leave refreshed and empowered after experiencing the effects of Marma Therapy and your Ayurvedic retreat.

"I feel as though all of the love that I've given in this lifetime has been returned to me a thousand fold." 

- Melanie P.

"Vira and Dhyana’s Training was so much more than I dreamed it would be when I made the commitment. They held individual space for each of us in our growth as healers and modeled over and over again this beautiful, soft and empathetic approach to Ayurveda that brings out the best in us and in our clients. I feel so fortunate to have found this particular training and to now have these beautiful souls as mentors on my journey." - Laura B

As I continued breathing as deeply and fully as I could, I entered into a state of consciousness where I experienced the full range of memories and emotions that had been repressed for a lifetime. This period was followed by the most blissful state of oneness, beauty and clarity that I had ever known, a profoundly spiritual experience that is beyond words. This is all I’ll say about it here.” 

- Michael C.

“I’m sure you get this after every class, but I feel intensely compelled to tell you how much that class meant to me. This past week I feel as if I’m operating on another plane of existence. The feeling I had while during the breathing was one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had in this lifetime.” 

- Carry Rose
