    I’ve really enjoyed every minute of my learning journey with Despina and feel that I have gained so much more than just being able to practice AYM! As well as being an amazing therapist, Despina is an approachable, supportive, attentive and collaborative teacher. Ever since the first workshop I did with her last year, it was clear to me that she genuinely cares about her students and wants to develop each one of us into confident, intuitive and well-informed AYM therapists who can give the best standard of service to their clients. She always makes herself available to her students and is always trying to find ways to help us improve our knowledge and skills. I just got back from Despina’s hometown in Chios where I completed my levels 3-5 and I’m still buzzing from the experience – hands-on massage training in small groups, daily yoga practice, healthy eating, beautiful nature and great company! So grateful to have found AYM (and Despina!)

    I had a great back, shoulder & neck yoga massage with Alison at her home recently. Having previously had an uncomfortable sports massage I wasn’t really sure if this was going to be for me. I can now happily say it definitely was, with the use of powder combined with oil not only did my muscles feel more relaxed but my skin felt great too.Knowing I was a little nervous about the intensity of pressure that would be applied Ali went to great lengths explaining the process and continually asked throughout the session if I was happy or could she change anything.Her room was really light and airey plus the yoga music in the background made it a really relaxing and enjoyable experience
