Chakra dough basti’s are powerful treatments that restore balance to the flow of prana into organs, chakras and marma points and also pacify vitiated dosha. Prepared containers are made from the flour of special black bean (urad dal) to contain warm herbal oils over certain parts of the body such as the chakras, marma points, glands, and the eyes. In this 35-hour workshop, students will learn how to prepare the dough and work in groups of two, giving and receiving these beautiful treatments.
