Holistic health, do you feel the calling?

My journey through Yoga and body and mind therapies has been endlessly satisfying and fascinating. There are always new things to learn and each interaction is like a universe in itself. I would advise anyone that has an incline to working in the holistic realm to take the plunge, do some training and never look back.

When I decided to become an Ayurveda therapist and Consultant there was one person that had a great impact and influence on me: Purnima Melos.

Purnima does an amazing bodywork called Ayurvedic Yoga Massage.

This therapy works not only on the physical level but also on the energetic body. Purnima is one of those special people you meet in life. She is insightful and generous with her knowledge. Her skill is unique.

And guess what? You can train with her this coming September!!

It’s over two long weekends, so you wouldn’t even have to use a lot of your annual leave.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.


Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) is a special bodywork therapy that combines ancient Indian massage with yoga-inspired stretches. It is a deep and vigorous massage which uses the rhythm of one’s breath as a compass.

This vast technique combines more than 400 movements that unlock sensations and energies, releasing tensions and eliminating toxins, acting as a powerful healer for posture alignment, fatigue, panic attack, distress or any kind of physical or emotional pain. Furthermore, it helps to return the body and mind to their natural equilibrium and state of wellbeing.

The technique was created by Master Kusum Modak, a unique Indian woman who overcame the cultural challenges of her generation through the force of her work. Kusum was the very first to weave together Ayurvedic massage and yoga practice.
