Training for Mother & Newborn Care (TMNC)
In Ayurvedic medicine, the delicate ’42 days for 42 years’ is called a natural kayakalpa or window for change.
During this time, if given the correct tools, a woman may make choices to work within Mother Nature’s rare opportunities for profound spiritual, emotional and physical rejuvenation.
The influence on the physiology is very significant for the art of mothering and happy, contented babies. It strengthens the baby’s life foundation and the mother’s health and relationships for decades.
Marma Chikitsa Certification
Marma points are ‘the various points on the body where the subtle life energy becomes matter, where thoughts transfer into the physical’. Marma points link to the subtle channels called nadis. Gentle pressure on the marma points release blocks and allows prana (life energy) to flow to the connecting organ or tissue.
It is potentially the most restorative of the ayurvedic treatments. Marma Chikitsa is a widely popular technique. It is simple and effective, with minimum equipment, it can be practiced anywhere.
This four day in-house training teaches :
- The basic Principles of Ayurveda
- The theory of Marma Chikitsa
- Training in client care
- Training in Marma Polarity Routine
- Training in 28 major Marma Points
Art of Wholesome Eating Teacher Training
This course is designed for those who would like to teach the basic principles of an ayurvedic lifestyle and a balanced, tasty, vegetarian diet according to the different constitutions as defined by ayurveda. Ayurveda pays special attention to what we eat, how we eat and how we digest our food, as it is of prime importance for energy, vitality and clear thinking.
This is a 14-day intensive course. Within those days :
- You will be trained to teach the six basic theory sessions on ayurveda and how to relate them to foods (the 3 doshas).
- You will understand the strong link, which exists between the food we eat, our mind, our moods and consequent behaviour (the 3 gunas and the 6 tastes).
- You will understand the importance of a strong digestion and comprehend the dis-ease process in Ayurveda.
- You will be coached to give practical demonstrations using your own recipes and to enliven ayurvedic knowledge in your classes.
