Experience individual energetic harmonization through sound and a one-on-one mini marma experience during this deeply rejuvenating workshop. 

Marma therapy is a method of clearing stress from the muscles, soft tissues, fascia, and vital points of the body. Focusing on releasing deep layers of tension stored in the physical and energetic body, we will utilize a combination of marma, restorative and gentle yoga poses in conjunction with sound healing to allow the mind and body to rejuvenate and return to a calmer, clearer state.  Attendees will receive a brief introduction to the basics of ISHTA marma along with learning some self marma points to revitalize your energy.

As we hold each asana and soak in the healing vibrations of the Tibetan Bowls, we will gradually release prana (life-force energy) along the marma lines which follow the path of the five major elements (earth, water, air, fire, and space) within. To enhance the release and unfasten any resistance in the body or mind, each attendee will receive one-on-one marma to release any points hindering your energy and additionally the Singing Bowls will be moved around the room allowing all participants to experience individual energetic healing through sound. This involves sounding the bowls while they are suspended above different energy centres of the body and at times, placing them directly on participant’s bodies. This will deepen and enhance the effects of the restorative asana and clear physical and energetic blockages along the marma lines. This potent combination will allow the mind and body to return to a calmer, clearer state.
