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. Read more about Ayurvedic Yoga Massage here.
Our training is designed to support you not only learning how to offer Ayurvedic Yoga Massage in a way that feels amazing for your own body as a therapist, and supports the physical and mental health of your clients, but also to support you every step of the way. From setting up and developing your business, to having all your technique questions answered promptly and efficiently, to having a supportive community to share your concerns and celebrate your successes with.. We have you covered!
In terms of your learning experience, 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. The theory part of the training is taught online before and after the practical training, and students also receive one year of free access to videos covering the of their training, theory and practical. Our students also receive one year of membership of the Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapists Association for free, after completion of their practical training with us.
In the two weeks following the completion of their training, our students are offered two mentorship sessions via Zoom to help them ask any questions that arise initially and settle into their practice. After that students can also opt to continue with our weekly mentorship programme for a nominal fee. We are committed to helping you succeed as a therapist, and part of that is helping you overcome any obstacles that hold back your career, and celebrating your successes together.
