What is Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM)
Inspired by the Indian traditions of Ayurveda and modern yoga, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) combines combines deep tissue oil massage and assisted yoga-based stretching elements in one session. Master Kusum Modak from Pune, India developed the comprehensive dynamic AYM method in the early 1980s, strongly influenced by her practice with BKS Iyengar. This contemporary all-in-one yoga therapy care supported by breathwork differs significantly from other traditional massage treatments of Ayurveda.
Ananta Sylvain Girard, founder of the ARYM Institute, shares three decades of rich experience in AYM. Along his journey, he devoted seven years in close hands-on collaboration with Master Kusum Modak, the creator of the AYM method, in India. Alongside his distinctive role as the master’s direct assistant, he has also built an illustrious career as a massage therapist, providing over 20,000 AYM treatments to a prestigious international clientele. Trained in anatomy by Professor Blandine Calais-Germain (Anatomy for Movement), Ananta has developed a precise and comprehensive teaching method. Since its creation in 1996, ARYM has trained thousands of AYM practitioners worldwide with the blessing of the Master. Learn more About Ananta
