Countless are craving to be healthy and happy. Countless theories inundate our minds (thanks to Google Guru!) causing mental constipation, hopping around from one modality to another, chasing for desired results. This makes it even more critical to understand your body, mind, Spirit, Soul; be self-reliant and develop your Self-healing powers within for true healing and freedom.

MarmaYog is a collection of practices of traditional indigenous healers and Highland Himalayan yogis who have gained voluntary control over the bodily functions and senses to survive harsh conditions to reach higher states of consciousness. Marma are explained briefly in text of Ayurved as vital points in the body through which Prān[a](cosmic energy, vital breath) flows enabling healthy life. Any obstruction to the flow of Prāna causes diseases which may lead to prolonged illness, deformity and death. Yog refers to various Hath Yog practices in form of Āsan[a], Bandh[a], Mudrā and certain Kriya’s(co-ordinated flows)which enable the practitioner to keep the flow of Prāna unobstructed through the Marma’s and also enable healing.

For the last 13 years and ongoing, Dr. Sumit Kesarkar has been applying these teachings, based in the understanding of key concepts of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Tantra to treat his patients for various disorders/diseases and spiritual journeys.
