Ayurvedic Yoga Massage with Ananta Sylvain Girard. Warming up and deep tissue massage

Paris, France – Certified Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Training / Aug 2020 (Postponed)

Become a Certified Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Practitioner

Learn the original and proven method of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) directly from Ananta Sylvain Girard, a pioneer teacher, main assistant and collaborator of Master Kusum Modak.
This 9-day intensive training course is a real initiation to the art of performing this unique yoga bodywork therapy to make yourself and others feel good. The classes are 90% hands-on and will teach you everything you need to know to provide (or improve) professional Ayurvedic Yoga Massage treatment genuinely tailored to clients’ individual needs.
Aside from easily learning technical skills, like massage techniques given with hands and feet, series of stretches and manipulations, each participant experiences first-hand daily care. By alternating the role of the masseur and that of the person being massaged, participants can thus revive one’s capacity to give and receive, naturally reconnecting with one’s psycho-corporal integrity.
At the end of 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
