Drawing primarily from the Thai yoga massage and Toksen along with sports  myofascial release and spinal manipulation, our massage system is used as a part  of therapy. Myofascial release can help switch off protective pattern of muscle that  restrict the involvement of right muscle groups and re-establish right movement 

patterns. When used in tandem with yoga and strength building exercises, Toksen and bodywork can accelerate recovery and healing from injuries and build strength  in a very harmonious way.  

Apart from the recovery aspect of these techniques, a very crucial aspect remains  rejuvenation of mind and cleaning of energy lines to create vitality.

Yogarambha - Toksen

Along with physical bodywork, we also incorporate nada yoga or psychic energy  cleaning and vibrational therapy into our program. Using on one side Tibetan singing  bowl and on other Vedic mantras chanting, we cleanse Nadis and allows the energy  to flow unhindered thus accelerating the body’s healing process.  

Using an amalgamation of Nada Chikitsa and Meditation we retrain the mind and  help it break free from fixed thought patterns. Sound therapy switches on the body’s  natural healing mechanism enabling it to fight off the diseases and rediscover health.  

Sound Healing is especially beneficial for Mental and psychosomatic disorders like  Depression, Anxiety, Stress and Addiction. Vibrational therapy whether in form of  Toksen or Sound healing works directly on the cellular level relaxing the tissues and  organs bringing them in harmony with the universal vibration.

2. Kasrat for Athletes

In our town, we have a rather large number of athletes. Dealing with this  special group requires a very different approach to exercise and yoga. Though  an average athlete is very active, we have found several loopholes in their  training program which can be very comfortably filled using Yogarambha  method. Though an athlete may train anywhere from 4-6 hours in his/her  skill, they hardly devote proportional quality time to condition for their sport.  Therefore, we see several athletes who injure themselves as they progress in  their game. We also see a large number of them hitting a plateau, unable to  up their game as they don’t fully understand their body’s movement integration mechanics. 

In the athlete’s program, we have superior mobility and fascial rewiring  techniques along with powerful breathing correction to help active recovery  and superior power production. Our drills help create better hand-eye  coordination in non-contact sports like tennis and high sensitivity and touch  recognition in sports like wrestling.
