Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM)

Inspired by the Indian traditions of Ayurveda and modern yoga, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) combines elements of deep tissue oil massage and assisted stretching based on the yoga postures in one session. Master Kusum Modak from Pune, India developed the comprehensive method of AYM 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.

The teacher

Ananta Sylvain Girard is the founder of the original AYM school, the ARYM Institute. A 30-year pioneer of the AYM method, Ananta worked closely for seven years in India with Master Kusum Modak, the creator of the AYM method. In parallel to his role as the collaborator of the master, he has had a remarkable career as a masseur serving a prestigious international clientele (over 18,000 AYM treatments served). A trained anatomist by his tutor, Professor Blandine Calais-Germain (Method Anatomy for Movement), Ananta has developed a precise and rich teaching method. Since its creation, ARYM has trained thousands of AYM practitioners with more than 250 certified practitioner training courses worldwide. Learn more About Ananta
