Therapist Training Level 1


Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Level 1 is an intensive 15-hour course, which introduces you to our very effective AYM techniques and an initial sequence that you will feel confident delivering after these initial 2 days.

There is a lot to cover in this introductory AYM training, so be prepared to concentrate and take notes!

The 15 hours will be covered over a weekend, i.e. two 8.5 hour days, and will be roughly broken down into the following..

Theory – 5hrs

This will include things such as how to do a consultation, how to understand what a client needs, ethics and business skills.

Practical and Techniques – 10hrs

Our purposefully small training groups means you get plenty of support with the practical element of the training. For some people this feels easy to pick up, for others it takes longer, this is why we send you a pre-training questionnaire asking you about how learn best, your previous experiences etc so that we are prepared to support you the best we can.

If you are already a therapist and are able to pick things up quickly we will be able to give you extra information and techniques within the course so you feel you’re getting the most from your training.

Remember this is just the beginning. Whilst you can do just Level 1, most people like to come back and continue learning and more importantly practicing skills with feedback from our trainer, to deepen understanding and ability.

We have 1hr of breaks each day.

What we cover

This training is aimed at giving you a foundation to get you started.

  • Learn an initial sequence to effectively massage the back, the most common request for massages, with the client lying face down. 
  • The sequence will also cover how to massage the legs, hands and feet, so you’ll feel confident to give a well rounded treatment. 
  • An initial introduction to the theory of massage, AYM massage and working with clients professionally. We also include business skills.
