The Wandering Monks Ayurveda Association
was established to promulgate Ayurvedic massage according to the teachings received, perpetuated and handed down
by the venerable Shri S.V. Govindan
and to train assistants and teachers
so that they can maintain
this tradition around the world
I would like to show you and express something that is not easy to convey: the preparation of an Ayurvedic therapist.
Intellectual, psychological, spiritual, poetic preparation.
Preparation that leads to a new way of feeling and that has a different therapeutic effect.
I will take you with me to the places I have visited, through the conversations I have had with doctors and monks and on the many journeys I have taken. I will try to lead you to what is the essence of Ayurveda: creation and poetry.
Every massage, when performed with this in mind, is an act of creation.
The Ayurvedic Massage of the Wandering Monks is a very, very ancient treatment and an art that risks being lost forever... my task today is to make this wonderful technique better known around the world, to remind us of what Ayurveda really means.
I have had the great fortune and privilege to be personally supervised by the maestro Govindan.
He accompanied me step by step, year after year, teaching me the ancient art of Ayurvedic massage rigorously and patiently for more than twenty years. I followed him and from him I learned the most profound, most precious, most unique aspects of this tradition. .......
