Barcelona, Spain – Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Training / May 2021 (POSTPONED)

Become a Certified Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Practitioner

Learn how to give the powerful yoga bodywork therapy that makes yourself or others feel good. Acquire the original AYM method directly from the pioneering teacher of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, Ananta Sylvain Girard, founder of the ARYM Institute (Mysore, India). This 12-day intensive course is 90% hands-on and will teach you everything you need to know to provide (or improve) a professional Ayurvedic Yoga Massage treatment tailored to individual client needs. The massage instruction uses the proven Kusum Modak method. Each participant experiences the AYM treatment daily, alternating between being the masseur and the massaged person, thus rekindling one’s ability to give and receive. In addition to the many yoga stretches and massage techniques taught during the classes, each participant naturally reconnects with his mind-body integrity, aiming to develop the conscious touch and caring presence essential to the massage practitioner’s craft. At the end of this training, the ARYM certification will allow you to blossom and begin your journey as an AYM practitioner worldwide.

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
