Part 1 of the training is theory-based, and outlines the important principles of this ancient approach, introducing Ayurveda’s unique system of describing and classifying the various divisions of the body’s innate intelligence, called the 3 Doshas–Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Participants will have a basic understanding of when it is appropriate to administer specific panchakarma techniques; as well learn the traditional method of performing the ancient therapies of Panchakarma.

1. Abhyanga –full body oil massage
2. Shirodhara – oil therapy for the scalp and head
3. Marma therapy – activation of key energetic points on the body
4. Nasya and Netra basti – cleansing therapies for nose and eyes
