AYM Training

Purnima’s AYM Massage Full Training is designed for you to have a professional massage practice, and you are also welcome to join us if you are looking for a new skill to share with your family. This training is a great opportunity to treat yourself as well, because you will be intensively receiving the technique as part of the course. While you are learning and practicing your body will get stronger, you will wake up your body consciousness and connect more with your intuition, learning to listen better to your soul and your needs. It’s a beautiful path of transformation, healing, building up self-esteem and self-love.

The AYM Full Training includes 63 hours of contact time. This is a hands-on training that covers both theoretical and practical content, working with deep inquiry and exploring the AYM technique by experiencing it intensively. Some alternative therapies such as meditation, wake up basic yoga practice, dynamics and breathwork may well be offered to the group as support to the student’s learning process. The training covers the technique in its full and original form, honouring its original creator; Kusum Modak. It includes supervised practice, review of content with Q&A, guidance on the use of props, applied anatomy, subtle anatomy, pathology and case studies, contraindications, postural correction and practices for the welfare of the student. Students receive a manual with photos and a certificate at the end of the course.

There are three parts to the learning process:

  • Observation: Explanation & demonstration of content;
  • Action: In pairs, practice of the content demonstrated;
  • Integration: Internalising what was taught through direct experience.
