Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, was and continues to be developed by Master Kusum Modak of Pune, India, who has tirelessly dedicated her life to creating and spreading this work. She has combined her knowledge of Ayurveda and Traditional Ayurvedic Massage with Yoga, learned directly from BKS Iyengar, to create her own unique approach to Ayurvedic massage.
AYM combines deep tissue massage with coordinated breath-work and yoga stretching.
Similar to Thai massage, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is performed on a mat allowing for a full range of stretching. In addition; the deep tissue massage dissolves physical tension, while the assisted stretches and breath exercises realign the body and stimulate the natural flow of energy.
Ayurvedic oils and powders are utilized for their healing properties. This technique will help dissolve physical and emotional blocks, eliminate toxins from the body, promote correct posture, improve respiratory patterns and leave the client with a deep sense of well-being.
