Indian Institute of Ayurvedic Massage

The Original Training Center in Ayurvedic Yoga Massage

Founded in 1996 by Ananta Sylvain Girard, the ARYM Institute (Indian Institute of Ayurvedic Massage) initially based in Pune and now located in Mysore, India, is the original AYM Institute first renowned for organising Master Kusum Modak’s pioneering training courses in the 90s and 2000s. ARYM has established itself as a leader in the field. With three decades of experience, the Institute not only preserves and respects this legacy but also enriches it by offering Ananta Sylvain Girard’s comprehensive and evolving courses, integrating and building upon them in the original teachings. Our commitment to excellence in AYM education and our deep connection to the source has made us a preferred choice for students over 2,000 students that joined us from all over the world. Under the blessing of Master Kusum Modak.
