AyurYoga Ayurveda Massage Training Course in India

Kayakalp Module

The Sanskrit word ‘Karyakalp’ comes from Kaya- Body and Kalp – Retransformation.

In Ayurvedic traditions, Kayakalp is a program where a person undergoes detoxification and cleansing with certain therapies and then rejuvenation and retransformation with the intake of Rasayana (Ayurvedic concoctions).

Ayuryoga kayakalp Module is a bodywork form where a massage is used to bring the same benefits of Kayakalp program. Here the massage brings out the Transformation, Restoration, Rejuvenation and Revitalization of the Kaya – the physical form and inner self.

This massage also includes various interesting supportive physical manipulation and gentle supportive yogic stretches to reintegrate the body further.

This combination gives an outcome of a whole dimensional splendid relaxing, rebalancing, rejuvenating complete bodywork.

In this massage first we use certain herbal powders and base oil (sesame or cold pressed sunflower)  to detoxify and cleanse. Then certain potent Ayurvedic medicinal oils are added to Recharge, Restore, Transform and rejuvenate the body, mind and being. Then to bring a complete reintegration, various effective supportive yogic stretches and moves are combined in the work to realign and provide balance to the musculoskeletal system and inner core.

In this Rasovai Ayuryoga Kayakalp form, first the different segments are massaged with the use of Sesame or Coconut oil in combination with detoxifying herbal powder/powder mix. The massage is done using hands, knuckles, fist and fingers to awaken and warm up the muscles and tissues Then further deep work is done using knee and feet in a gentle but yet powerful way to reach to the levels and layers that is not possible with hands. After the tissues of each segment are opened up there is further expansion and opening provided by giving unique supportive yogic moves that take this work to a completely different level.

Highlights of AyurYoga Massage Course

This is one massage where the session is offered on a mat or a mattress on the floor without the need of a massage table.
And the massage can also be adopted to do on the table if needed. You can actually offer to one client the same massage on the floor and also on the table providing variations and experience in different ways the same massage works.
You can offer this bodywork sessions on the go or in a simple non spa set up too or from the freedom of your own house. Thereby, you get a big flexibility in sense of working with freedom.
The massage is also a further skill development for Yoga teachers who can add services of yoga based massage session provider for their students. This also allows the students to further open up their bodies and have a profound effect with the practice.
The massage is highly effective to transform the people’s physiology and inner self. These sessions are unlike other work and bring out some very effective results.
The massage can be given as single session just to remove tensions, tiredness, fatigue and bring relaxation, serenity, easiness and flow of prana ( energy) or it can be done as progressive multiple therapeutic sessions to detoxify, clean the body and rejuvenate, recharge, transform and reform the physiology and being.
The massage is wholesome and complete. It covers the whole body.

About the Training

We are sharing this massage art form in an intensive 10 days complete course to give you the knowledge, practice and expertise to successfully offer whole body sessions to your clients.

The course is designed in such a way that irrespective of your background in yoga or massage or Ayurveda, you will learn this form in a playful and joyous way during the training.

The course is taught each day and you progress step by step covering each area and working in certain specific ways.

The training is practical and comprehensive. There are interactive theoretical lessons to provide the base for this bodywork form.

You will learn to use your hands, fist, knuckles, fingers, knee and feet to reach into various layers of the body in a synchronized way. You will also be learning on how to use your KNEE or FEET (the highlight of this massage) to work in some very unique ways and be able to create a high level of satisfaction in relieving the Tension, Fatigue and Stress from the body.
In this massage to use feet you don’t need to assemble parallel bars like in Ashiatsu or rope hung from ceiling like in Kalari. Here we are using stool or chair to balance the weight and shift it as per the need and receptivity of the client.

You will also learn various supportive manipulations; Yoga based stretches and how to harmoniously combine them in the massage to bring more opening in the same session.

You will learn the basics of Ayurveda and the constitution (Dosha) theory.
You learn about the powder used in the massage and substitute for this (also the possibility to make back at home)

You will learn about the different oils used in this massage and their qualities.

With the progress of practical work you will also learn the simplified anatomy related to the massage.

One important aspect of learning here is that you also learn the significance and importance of each stroke that you give and each stretch that you provide. You learn the muscles and parts of the body that it is working upon and the benefit that it is providing. You do not just randomly do strokes without the reason and orientation towards a result.

Each day students are demonstrated the techniques and then they practice with each other under the guidance and visual support (TV or projector).
