About Adam Divine

Adam Divine is the anatomy teacher on the Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre teacher training. His interest in anatomy started with his study of massage in 2005 and he has been working as a body mechanic ever since. Adam is ITEC certified and has studied Anatomy Trains courses, as well as training with ayurvedic doctors in India and monks in Thailand. He has been practising Ayurvedic Yoga Massage for ten years.

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Level 1

AYM combines deep tissue massage with coordinated breathwork 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.

The deep tissue massage helps to remove knots and adhesions in the muscles, releases tension and prepares the body of the receiver for assisted yoga stretching. Through synchronised breathwork, the receiver is led progressively deeper into assisted yoga postures that help correct postural imbalances and restore harmony to the body. In keeping with the tradition of Ayurveda, herbal oils and medicinal powders are utilized for their healing properties.
This course is perfect for beginners and professional massage therapists alike. If you are a professional massage therapist, this serves as a CEU and is endorsed by the CThA (Complementary Therapists Association).
In this training:
  • Students will learn how to perform a basic 90 minute AYM sequence
  • · Each set of techniques will first be demonstrated in detail by the teacher
  • Students will work with partners to practice each technique
  • Students will receive lots of one to one attention from the teacher
  • Use of props
  • Therapist body mechanics and self care will be taught throughout
  • Functional anatomy, pathology, contraindications will be taught for each technique
  • Students will receive full AYM level 1 detailed photo manual
This unique comprehensive approach to the body dissolves physical and emotional blocks, helps eliminate toxins, promotes correct posture, improves respiratory patterns, enhances energy levels, and leaves the receiver with a profound sense of well being.
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Level 2
On the Level Two Ayurvedic Yoga Massage course, you will learn more massage techniques, advanced stretches and ‘walking’ which will make your massage session more varied.When you are working with clients over a period of time, you will be able to offer more unique massage packages catering to their specific body issues.

Level Two gives you alternatives to help you open up restricted areas and work with postural problems. You learn more advanced yoga stretches to target those areas. Level Two also includes walking on the body – using a chair or stool, you balance your body weight and use your feet to massage the body in long strokes. This gives you the potential to use more pressure if needs be adjusting your body weight. As in level one, you will be learning to communicate with your client, using coordinated breathwork to assist the stretches.

In Level Two you reach certification standard approved by Complimentary Therapists Association UK. Naturally Level One is a pre-requisite.

  • Students will learn how about two hours worth of techniques and how to structure these into an hour or 90min session.
  • Each set of techniques will first be demonstrated in detail by the teacher

Summer Spain Retreat with Lalit 2015

Posted by on 20 Mar, 2015 in News | Comments Off

Immerse yourself in traditional practices with expert yoga teacher Yogacharya Lalit, founding Director of Himalaya Yoga Valley India. This retreat is designed to help practitioners of all levels to deepen their practice under Lalit’s guidance in the beautiful Sierra Nevada region.

It would be hard for me to capture in only a few lines what an amazing time I had on the retreat in Moraymar, Spain, simply put it has altered my thinking on how ‘holidays’ should be spent. From the moment I was greeted at the bus stop by Maeve and introduced to my fellow yogis I enjoyed 7 days of pure bliss. The location, accommodation, staff, weather and food was superb. The yoga, pranayama, chanting and meditation were brought to a place I had previously not experienced and succinctly delivered by Lalit. All levels were catered for and in a relaxed yet challenging way. The first morning I woke after the retreat I woke up with a smile on my face. 10/10. Enough said.  Tim, Cork.
