Ayurvedic Bodywork Training Abhyanga

For bodyworkers (see note below).

Abhyanga is a classic Ayurvedic full-body treatment done with herbalized oil. It is soothing, nurturing, and one of the best techniques for balancing prana (life force), a main goal of Ayurveda. Hilary Garivaltis invites you to come learn this rewarding technique.

In addition to abhyanga, this training includes the fundamentals of Ayurvedic theory, the origins of massage, ethics training through the lens of yoga and Ayurveda (2-hour minimum), and the use of mantra, or sacred sound, in establishing a calm and healing environment.

Note This course is designed for bodyworkers; others should direct inquiries to Hilary at hgarivaltis@gmail.com. This program offers 16 hours of continuing education credits for NAMA professional members.
