Lisbon, Portugal – Certified Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Training / Jan 2022 (Attempt)

Become a Certified Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Practitioner

Learn the original and proven Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) method directly from Ananta Sylvain Girard, a pioneer teacher, principal assistant and collaborator of Master Kusum Modak.

This 9-day intensive training course is a genuine initiation to the art of performing this Dynamic Yoga Bodywork Therapy as a professional or to help others, and yourself feel good.

The classes are 90% hands-on and multi-sensory.
Ananta teaches everything you need to know practically to provide (or improve) professional Ayurvedic Yoga Massage treatments genuinely tailored to clients’ individual needs.
In addition to acquiring the required technical skills (see details below), each participant experiences first-hand daily care. By alternating between the role of the masseur and the person being massaged, everyone can thus revive one’s capacity to give and receive, naturally reconnecting with one’s psycho-corporal integrity.

Upon completing this training, you will be rewarded with the International ARYM Certification, which allows you to start your journey as an AYM practitioner.

Pre-requisite: The course is suited for everyone with a genuine interest in massage, including beginners and professionals of all levels.

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM)

Inspired by the Indian traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage therapy (AYM) combines deep tissue massage with asanas yoga-based stretches
It should be emphasised that Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a very different treatment from other traditional Ayurvedic massages and care. The central part of the AYM treatment is linked to yogasana therapy with series of passive and assisted yoga stretches. Moreover, unlike Abhyangam massage, only a small amount of massage oil is applied, which is further mixed with a genius exfoliating powder, during the slow and deep massage movements given with hands and feet: Ayurvedic Yoga Massage vs traditional Abhyangam & Ayurveda massages
