Therapist Training Level 2

Prices and Booking

The Level 2 training costs £350, or £300 concessions (please see our price structure here, including our concessions policy). Students usually pay a deposit of £100 (see cancellations policy), but if you are in financial difficulty you can apply to pay a smaller deposit. The remainder is payable 4 weeks before the start of your training, or if you are in financial difficulty we can set up a personalised interest free payment plan for you, and you can spread out the payments as much as you need to, including past the dates of your training.

Description

Level 2 includes more techniques, and indications and contra-indications for each technique. The students’ pace of learning is faster by L2, as they already understand how the body needs to be touched/moved, and their own body mechanics. By combining L1&2 techninques you can offer a complete full body massage which will leave your clients feeling like they’re walking on clouds. We continue to work on the therapist’s body dynamics, our energy and pace during the treatment, the breath, appropriate levels and surface areas of pressure, and working out how much to stretch depending on client needs.

The practical part of this training is usually covered in 2-3 full days, the online materials are available from 2 weeks before the start of the practical training and for one year afterwards.

We also offer a Level 1-2 intensive training.

What we cover

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

  • Learn the sequence to effectively massage the front of the body with the client face up.
  • This includes the front of the legs, adductors, quadriceps, abductors, knees; massaging the abdomen and the chest; the neck, head and face. 
  • Learn stretches for when the client is lying face up, and a few more stretches with the client in a seated position. 

What we offer beyond the online and practical training

With all of our trainings we offer:

  • Two one-hour mentorship sessions in the two weeks after your training
  • Option to join our amazing value mentorship programme via Zoom, for ongoing support in real time
  • One year access to all training resources online
  • One year free student membership of the Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapists Association
  • Easy access to a supportive community of therapists. We invite you to organise treatment swaps with your peers locally (we have therapists practically everywhere in the UK and in a few locations abroad). When you receive AYM from other therapists you get embodied experience, and when you massage other AYM therapists they can give you incredibly informative feedback for your treatments. This is the best way to launch you towards being an successful therapist, with the kind of communication skills and touch that puts your clients at ease, and helps them feel amazing from the first ot the last moment of their session with you.

The course with Despina was life changing for me. I had studied other styles of massage for a couple of years before this course, but I was growing to feel quiet disheartened with it all, restricted by the small number of massage techniques available, and restricted by using a massage… Read More

I am so grateful to Despina for the Ayurvedic Yoga Massage level 1-2 course! I am very satisfied with the course for many reasons. First, the atmosphere was very friendly and supportive. The group was small, we were only 8. We learned theory, then tried to practise and swapped, asking… Read More
