Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapy is a unique form of yoga-based bodywork that combines deep tissue massage with coordinated breath-work and yoga stretches.
This holistic and profound approach to the body is designed to dissolve physical and emotional blockages and tension, help remove toxins, realign the muscles and joints, rectify postural imbalances, and restore the energy levels in the body.
The deep tissue massage is performed on a mat on the floor and the receiver does not need to practice yoga to benefit from this treatment.
In keeping with the tradition of Ayurveda, nut or seed based oils combined with a herbal powder made from the root of the Calamus plant are utilised for their healing properties. They act like a blood detoxifier and nerve tonic, and allow the receiver to be progressively led into assisted yoga stretches.
The 90 minute treatment focuses on all regions of the body, and therapeutic stretches and tension dissolving massage will be applied according to each individual client’s needs. AYMT leaves the receiver relaxed yet invigorated, it is the perfect antidote to tension and stress, and provides the added benefit of increased flexibility and range of motion.
I completed my Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapy teacher training in 2018 under the skilled guidance of James Winstanley; founder and lead instructor of the AYM Institute UK, who in turn received his training from Master Kusum Modak the creator of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage.

Massage Feedback & Review – by Kat, from London
The Yoga Massage with Medea was a wonderful experience, and most importantly it changed my whole perspective on the health of my muscles. As it is a full body treatment it allows for all muscles to be explored and taken care of, the massage was a lot deeper and more thorough than the classic spa treatments and I could feel the benefits straight away.
With brilliant skill and precision Medea worked with every muscle from head and face to toes and ankles, and I was surprised to discover that it was my hamstrings and calf muscles that were the tightest – I had always thought it was my neck and shoulders. Medea gave me helpful advice on how to continue working with and stretching certain muscles after exercising to keep my body mobile, flexible and healthy. Although the massage and stretches were intense at times, I always felt completely safe, and after the session I felt relaxed and energised, and inspired to work on keeping my body flexible and mobile – whereas before I only focused on strength.
I would recommend everyone to book an Ayurvedic Yoga massage with Medea, whether you struggle with tight muscles and immobility, do a lot of sports, or feel stressed and out of balance; this massage therapy will benefit anyone, and you may get surprised to discover where your body holds tension.
