Marma Nidra
Dec
15
2:00 PM14:00

Marma Nidra

There are 72,000 subtle energy channels within the body. Where these channels intersect, we find the powerful Marma points - the Vital Areas of the body. For thousands of years, Marma Therapy has accessed these vital areas to help balance energy and heal the body, mind, and spirit. 

During this two-hour workshop, we will discover the 107 points, their connections, and related uses in Marma Therapy. We’ll spend the last hour in Marma Nidra - similar to Yoga Nidra, or yogic wakeful sleep - you will find deep relaxation as your energetic channels open up to new flow.

Please note we will use aromatherapy and essential oils in this workshop. Also, please bring your favorite - or a very comfortable - pillow from home.

Join Kirsten Ahern, Certified Marma Therapist by the California College of Ayurveda, to  explore the depths of this ancient Vedic science in your own body this holiday season! 

Sign up @ Bhakti Yoga, DC

Early Bird: $25 by 12/10, $30 thereafter

***Participants will receive a 20% discount on future one-on-one Marma Therapy Sessions with Kirsten (offer good through 2019).
