Description

Dip your toes into AYM and learn how to give an amazing massage to your loved ones!

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a deep tissue oil massage followed by assisted yoga stretches. It is adjusted to suit clients – relaxing, energising, soothing, deep or remedial. The method was developed by Master Kusum Modak in Pune, India, after many years of studying traditional Ayurvedic massage and Iyengar yoga. AYM is an amazing technique which works on many levels – physical, emotional, mental, energetic.


Join us to dip your toes into massaging friends and family, they will love you this little bit more for it! Or come and see whether this style of massage is something that works for you before taking a therapist training course.

Suitable for everyone including beginners and experienced therapists are also very welcome, use it as CPD to get inspired and add some AYM strokes and stretches to your existing practice. Learning to offer some AYM is also beneficial for yoga teachers who either want to improve their hands-on adjustments, or offer short massage sessions to their private clients. Also useful for partners who get bored of massaging you after 5 minutes - this workshop is the antidote, they won't get bored again afterwards!

Both giving and receiving AYM helps to understand the body better, as we experience the quality of muscles at the same time as observing openness, and how the body moves.

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a wonderful style to give as well as to receive. By giving it you can feel the benefits of a loving kindness meditation combined with a gentle yoga practice. We spend some time to discuss posture, using our body weight and breathing while giving massage, so that offering AYM can be a safe and relaxing experience.

The workshops are fun and within the 4 hours you receive quite a bit of massage! Optional: bring a friend to swap with if you would like to be shown how to work with each other.

We like to make the wonderful experience of giving massage available to everyone, and we can teach your partner to massage you appropriately according to your health. Please contact us in advance if you have reduced mobility or other conditions which might otherwise hinder you from receiving certain styles of massage, practising yoga or taking a massage course – we can discuss your options and would love to be able to help! Despina has devoted her life to bringing this amazing technique to more people since 2011.

WHAT WE CAN COVER IN THE PRACTICAL SESSIONS

- Back and shoulders workshop: In this workshop we'll cover massaging the back and shoulders with the hands, and carrying out some relevant stretches. This is usually the beginning of the AYM sequence, as loosening up the areas around the spine will have a great impact on people’s ease of movement; and releasing the areas around the ribcage will help make breathing easier. Brilliant if you or your friends/family have low or upper back tension or pain! Exactly how much we cover will depend on the group, as the pace will be adjusted to suit the participants. See the beginning of the AYM videos where Despina massages people’s backs with her hands.
This workshop will cover: neck, shoulders, head and face.

The price is £60.00 for person or £100 for 2 people.

** You can also count this workshop towards CPD hours if you are a therapist/yoga teacher **
