MARMA IN YOGA PRACTICE

Marmani or marma points are sensitive zones around the body that roughly equate with pressure points found in Chinese medicine. In ancient India, marmani were used in a variety of combat sports like Kalari martial art and Mala purana, Indian wrestling. In Siddha medicine, an offshoot of Ayurveda, they were widely used therapeutically to help overcome ailments. I first came across Marma points during my clinical training in India in the early noughties where we were lucky enough to have a teacher who had written a book on the subject. Since then, I have worked with marma points extensively by integrating it into clinical body work and into my yoga practice and teaching. There is tremendous value in learning where key marma points are, particularly in the feet, hand and around major joints. This is because they act as junctions for vata dosha (internal wind energy) and also as sites where pitta dosha (heat and inflammation) and kapha dosha (mucus and swelling) accumulate. An understanding of these locations can really help to transform our personal yoga practice into a therapeutic process.

I am running an introductory one day workshop online on Saturday November 18th 2023 from 10.00-1600. Here is what you will learn:

By the end of the day, you should be able to:

  • Gain a general overview of the the basic principles of Ayurveda in order to understand the context of Marmani.

  • Locate some key Marma points related to the three Doshas and work with them during your Yoga practice.

  • Apply pranayama and relaxation techniques to work with some key Marma points therapeutically.

  • Become familiar with Marma therapy and how it can be used in Common ailments.

Day: Saturday November 18th 2023
Time: 10.00-16.00
Cost: £75.00

SELF NURTURING WITH YOGA AND AYURVEDA ON DECEMBER 16TH 2023

The greatest gifts of Yoga and Ayurveda are the tools for self care. As yoga teachers and practitioners, we are ambassadors of the sacred. By honouring the body as a temple of life, the heart as a temple of emotions and the mind as a temple of thoughts, everything we are becomes sacred.

In Ayurveda, we talk about the doshas ‘going out of balance’ but what does this really mean? It means we are in a state of imbalance or vikruti and need to find a way to centre ourselves once again. Yoga has given us the gift of asana, intelligent breath through prana, deepening self connection through meditation and therapeutic relaxation through savasana. We also encounter healing through the power of sound and visualisation and the possibility of deep encounter with who we really. Ayurveda has given us the knowledge to heal ourselves through food, herbs and sadvritta, aligning our own cycles with those of nature.

The autumn term can be an overwhelmingly busy time for us and we unconsciously grieve the weakening of the suns energy as we sense the diminution of our own solar batteries. Our soul is beginning to crave rest as we edge closer to the winter solstice when the sun is at its weakest.

However, we also become aware of the increasing power of the Moon and its capacity to heal. The Moon is the great cosmic mother that gave us form and surrounded us with all that we need to self heal.
It is a time to harness out lunar energies and to put aside some time to nourish and nurture ourselves.

It is also a time to send our prayers to those who are suffering in the war torn areas of the world.

On Saturday December 16th, I will run a one day workshop that will be all things restful for the body, easeful for the soul and calming for the mind.
You will also be sent a few recipes which I will invite you to try out on the day itself!

The one day webinar will include:,

* a restorative asana sequence
* Yoga nidra
* pranayama and meditation practice
* a self massage routine
* a discussion on food and herbs for the winter months
* sound and visualisation practices

FREE! You will also get a complimentary never before published article I wrote on Simple Ayurvedic Herbs and Recipes.

Day: Saturday December 16th 2023
Time: 10.00-16.00
Place: ONLINE
Cost: £75.00

SPECIAL OFFER! I am offering the first 10 places for just £60 till midnight on Sunday November 12th so don’t miss out!!
