Celebrate Ayurveda Day by learning about the benefits of two Ayurvedic bodywork therapies with Boston Ayurveda School faculty members Kim Valeri Povey and Aparna Joshi. Abhyanga is a daily Ayurvedic practice that can be self-administered to pacify vata dosha imbalance caused by stress, tension, and anxiety. Marma point therapy is a technique to balance the nadi channels and to improve the flow of energy throughout the body.
Kim Valeri Povey is a yoga therapist, Ayurveda practitioner, and educator. Kim is the Director of the Boston Ayurveda School and serves the community of faculty, students, and academic administrators in all aspects of teaching and programming through the Office of Academic and Community Affairs. She brings thirty years of teaching and professional expertise as the Founder and Owner of Yogaspirit Studios; and, former CEO of Kerala Ayurveda Academy, U.S.A.
Aparna Joshi is passionate about the therapy work that brings wellness and harmony into everyday life by Ayurveda. Her extensive training in Ayurvedic panchakarma therapy is authentic and well perfected from years of working in Pune, India where she was working in Ayurvedic hospitals and clinics with Ayurvedic Doctors and Vaidyas. Her International Cidesco certification for specialization in abhyanga ayurvedic therapy has evolved since coming to the US to include a depth of intuitive knowledge from her established practice in panchakarma therapy and helping her many clients with her healing hands. Aparna is a Reiki grandmaster trained in the lineage of her teacher Pia Vasanti.
