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 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
WHAT IS MARMA THERAPY?
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 in life, it stores itself in our body to be processed at a later time. All aspects of our body are porous just like a sponge, where energy and fluids move in and out of all the tissue in our body down to our bones. Marma pressure points put healthy pressure on the tissues of the body to release stress from them & 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 and turn those experiences into energy that fuels us, helps us to grow and expand our ability to love & serve in any situation.
This program will provide a complete foundation of the science of Marma Therapy 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 effect of Marma Therapy and our two week long Ayurvedic retreat.
