Ayurvedic Massage is based on ancient wisdom about the mind-body-energy connection and affects all levels of the mind, soul and senses. Traditional Ayurvedic massage is a full body massage that heals from head to toe, with a focus on marma points – classical healing pressure points that can alter the organic function and structural condition of the body. The use of marma therapy and the transfer of prana between therapist and client are essential to the healing process.
Deep seated vata, pitta, kapha imbalances can be addressed, with emotional hindrances and pranic blockages cleared. This nourishes the tissues and entire system at a cellular level. With Ayurvedic principles largely based on prevention, rather than cure, the intention is to encourage vitality, health and longevity.
In this course, you will learn how to observe a client’s current state of health and their personal dosha/s. With your knowledge of the strokes of classical Ayurvedic massage, you will be able to determine which strokes suit the individual dosha of a person, and similarly which Ayurvedic herbal medicated oils are required to suit a condition and constitution to relieve the mind and body from tensions, tightness, stresses and toxic build ups.
Being able to bring the sister sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda together is essential to yoga teaching and therapy. It is the ancient model.
This course will help you improve your sensitivity to work with your clients in a holistic manner. You will learn to see where a client is holding tension, tightness, and be able to pinpoint the marma points required to help them release both physically and emotionally. A good Ayurvedic practitioner and/or yoga teacher can have instantaneous effects on students with this deep sensory awareness and transference. As practitioners of Ayurveda and Yoga, we follow the disciplines of integrity and balanced living to transfer this wisdom and pranic energy to our clients. This follows centuries of therapeutic knowledge, and promotes the central truth found on the Vedic texts, “Massage is medicine”.
You will be taught by highly qualified and experienced teacher Celia Roberts
