THE COURSE

This training will prepare you to perform a session of full body Ayurvedic Yoga Massage. You will learn a sequence consisting of warming up of the body, deep tissue stimulation and selected assisted stretches, along with their indications and contraindications.

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, apart from its physical therapeutic benefits, is a form of energy work. We learn about the benefits of incorporating breath work and meditation into our massage sessions which make the effects of AYM deeper, more healing and longer lasting. circle

The course is designed for both massage therapists looking for a new set of skills and beginners on the path of body work.

It is especially beneficial for Yoga teachers and practitioners, as it helps to develop body awareness and recognise the body’s needs and limits.

This training is 90% practice, 10% theory.

Included in the course fees:

– course manual with pictures and detailed description of every position

– certificate of completion

– tea/coffee and healthy snacks

THE MASSAGE

wave

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) is a full body massage, involving alternation between deep tissue massage and assisted Yogic stretches. Gradually a sense of openness and deep relaxation is brought to the person receiving it.
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is performed on a mattress on the floor. Both hands and feet are used in the process of delivering the massage. We also work with the breath, to increase the therapeutic benefits. Mindful touch and deep, relaxed breathing allow the nervous system to relax and let go. This helps to re-educate the system and brings long lasting effects of feeling centred, less likely to get agitated or restless, and experience clarity of thoughts.

Another unique tool of the AYM is the use of calamus (sweet flag family) root powder which, mixed with a little oil, brings out the toxins from the body and helps to warm up the tissues. The scrubbing and stimulating feeling awakens the skin, blood circulation and the senses.
