Marma Therapy Level 1: Self Marma with Yogiraj Alan Finger, Kara Sekuler & Mark Waterman

January 14 - January 15

| $275 - $350 | REGISTER


Marma points are energetic centers that act as “little brains” that feed the organs, nerves and cells of your body with the intelligence they need to function efficiently. Stress, whether physical, emotional/mental or environmental in origin, can cause marmas to become strangled in the soft tissues of the body. ISHTA Marma Therapy frees the strangled marmas, releasing blocked energy, cleansing away stress and returning the individual to homeostasis.

Learn to heal yourself using this profound technique, developed by Yogiraj Alan Finger, South African Tantric and Kriya Yoga Master. Practice it on yourself under the guidance of Alan Finger, senior ISHTA teacher and marma therapy course co-creator Kara V. Sekuler, and Mark Waterman, ISHTA teacher and licensed massage therapist.

As a child, she danced and sang in Milwaukee’s Florentine Opera and Skylight Comic Opera.She graduated summa cum laude from CUNY, with a B.S. in Anatomy and Human Movement.  Kara found Yoga Zone with her teacher and mentor, Yogiraj Alan Finger.  She helped develop the Teacher Training Manual used by Yoga Works and ISHTA Yoga and is the co-creator ISHTA Yoga’s popular Marma Therapy Course.  Kara has studied extensively with Kevin Gardiner (Iyengar Institute), Leslie Kaminoff (The Breathing Project), Rodney Yee, Richard Freeman and Glenn Black.  She currently teaches at Yoga Works and ISHTA Yoga and is employed by Dr. Loren Fishman as a medical yoga therapist.
