Who speak to one of it’s students and island residents.

Who are you, where are you from and how have you ended up here in Ibiza?

My name is Slavomira. I am from Slovakia. In the past 13 years I have lived in many different places. I travelled always looking for a change in my life. I lived in Ibiza back in 2012 for over 6 months but I left the island for another adventure. Meanwhile Yoga found me. Being curious about what Yoga actually is, I decided to go on my own journey of its discovery to India. This was a transformational period for me. I found my true nature; I became a happier person, more conscious about the present moment, devoted to simple living and high thinking. It made me to quit my old job, pack my things and move back to Ibiza.

What is yoga massage?

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a unique type of massage where yoga stretching, coordinated breathwork and deep tissue massage are combined.

So would I be right in thinking this kind of massage is more therapeutic than relaxing? 

Yes, it is an active therapeutic deep tissue massage. It is a client-centered work where the pressure while warming up the muscles and the right way to breathe as important keys in this type of a massage are communicated in order to create a mutual relaxation.

Do you need any previous experience of yoga or do you need to be quite flexible to enjoy yoga massage?

No experience in Yoga is needed. It is a journey of self-discovery. AYM is the gateway to opening the old wounds and healing, unlike any other massage. Most massages focus on giving relaxation. With Ayurvedic Yoga Massage this is only a sign post in the journey. It is a therapy treatment that helps the client to feel and release both the emotional and the physical pain, to release the toxins because of the blood stream to be expelled, to create a flow of energy that can be a healing experience, to be present in the body and the mind.

Who can benefit from this type of massage, what is it beneficial for?

Anyone who is looking to discover more about its body, to release pain and discomfort or just wants to try something new.

AYM is beneficial for many conditions, such as:

– Mental stress and physical tension

– Joint and muscle pain related to stiffness or illness

– Respiratory problems, (such as shallow breathing, asthma…)

– Problems with circulation related to stiffness and lack of exercise

– Bad posture and all forms of back, neck and shoulder pain, (such as scoliosis, slipped disc, imbalance in the pelvic girdle, frozen shoulder…)

– Pain in the limbs, (such as morning stiffness, knee pain, tennis and golf elbow, imbalance in the hip joints …)

– Constipation and other transit problems

– Stress, anxiety, depression, exhaustion and lethargy

– Migraine, headaches, insomnia and other sleep-related problems

Where does it originate from and how did you learn it?

The original method of AYM was developed in the early 1980s by Master Kusum Modak from Pune, India.

I trained in Ayurvedic Yoga Massage with James Winstanley from AYM Institute in India.

How can people try it out?

The individual session of AYM is given on the floor. It is a full body massage where both hands and feet are used in its delivery. Treatment duration varies between 90 – 120 minutes and consists of warming up the muscles followed by body movements and stretches, including chest/heart opening, hips opening, muscles lengthening and strengthening that can lead to releasing both emotional and physical pain from the body. Another unique tool of the AYM massage is the use of Calamus powder mixed with just a little of sesame oil that brings out the toxins from the body; the scrubbing and stimulating feeling awakens the skin, blood circulation and senses. A space on the floor of at least 2,3m x 2,3m is needed to work in. I bring all what is necessary to create the working space in clients’ homes.
