Madame Ruli (a master of Ayurvedic massage and renowned Reiki practitioner in Indonesia) welcomed Iyan into the world of Ayurvedic massage.
The tenants and practice of Reiki and Ayurveda seemed second nature to Iyan and his training with Ibu Ruli soon became integrated with his own mastery. Iyan's 2.5 hour Ayurvedic Massage is highly sought for its ability to re-balance the chakra system. Iyan believes in the importance of being centered in the mind and body as a massage therapist and achieved his designation as an Ashtanga Yoga teacher in 2003. Iyan has always had a personal practice of yoga but started to study and train in 2001 to deal with a personal health issue and to bring a more formalized practice of yoga into his massage work.
Iyan joined Claude in developing and delivering Zen Lifestyle Energy Resort where they developed the holistic "escape the world" retreat, a six day journey of yoga, meditation, rituals and spa treatments. This program has attracted people from all over the world. Iyan enjoys sharing, helping and teaching. He trained the staff in delivering their unique body therapies and holistic treatments and has developed an intensive program for training and grounding practitioners.
Naturally curious, Iyan is currently exploring aromatherapy and is creating some exciting essential oil blends to compliment his body therapies.
