Intro to Ayurveda
Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm
Ayurvedic Massage and Healing Treatments Training
During this 3 day training participants will receive an Intro to Ayurveda and learn various Ayurvedic Massage and healing treatments. Ayurvedic Massage is a relaxing massage where warm oils are massaged into the body. This healing massage helps to balance all the doshas (tri-doshic) while also detoxifying.
Learn the techniques and flow of Ayurvedic (Abhyanga) Massage both two handed (one practitioner) and four handed (two practitioners). Participants will work in groups of two or three giving and receiving while also offering feedback. We will also discuss various oils that can be used for the different doshas and season to create balance.
We will also learn how to perform a Shirodhara Treatment (warm oil applied to the forehead) and Dam (dough) Basti where warm oil is poured onto contained areas of the body to pull out toxins, impurities and to create balance.
The Friday evening Intro to Ayurveda Workshop is required by all participants. Cost is included in the massage training tuition.
An additional 10 hours will be required outside of the training to complete certification.
