A wonderful massage technique to give and receive

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a wonderfully effective method, which is a pleasure to both give and receive. It is based on traditional Ayurvedic Massage and Iyengar yoga, and its popularity in the UK has been growing as more therapists and clients experience it.

Both giving and receiving AYM is a brilliant way to improve your understanding of bodies, including your own. AYM is unique in that you give an oil massage, so you feel the quality of the muscles; then you give some assisted stretches, so you start observing how bodies move and connect that with the quality of the muscles. We also use gentle mobilisations, which make it easy to observe when the client is holding parts of the body, and can consciously release them; or when tightness cannot be released by conscious effort, which is where the massage and the stretches come in.

Throughout each session we are trying to encourage ease of breath, so we become tuned in to how people breathe, where they hold their tension, how much of it they can release by relaxing, and where massage (and yoga/other therapies) can come in and help with bringing further softness, freedom of movement and ease of breathing.

Our training courses are suitable for beginners, but also as a specialisation for therapists trained in other modalities.
