What is Marma?

Marma is wisdom of sacred geometry of human body revolving around 108 points of lights. By studying Marma we become aware of the three divine wisdoms of Yoga, Ayurveda and Tantra.

Understand how prana (life force), tejas (internal fire), and ojas (deep vitality) can be cultivated to regulate and support agni (digestive fire) for optimal health through the knowledge and application of 108 marmani.

The study of marma is essential for an aspiring Yogin, Yoga Therapist, and Ayurvedic practitioner to deepen their understanding of the very subject bring insight and depth to their own practice.

This is one of a kind training offered by Indu Arora. It is divided in 2 parts, each spread over a weekend. Each day has at least 2 practice sessions and has several opportunities for Q & A.
