Barcelona, Spain – Certified Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Training / May 2023

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 Yoga Bodywork Therapy (passive yoga) 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 treatment 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 oil massage and yoga-based passive stretches (assisted stretching therapy). It should be emphasised that Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a very different treatment than Abhyanga Massage or other traditional ayurvedic massages as yoga passive stretching therapy is the central part of the treatment. Besides, only a small amount of massage oil is used, mixed with an exfoliating powder when applying the deep massage strokes: Ayurvedic Yoga Massage vs traditional Abhyangam & Ayurveda massages
