DOORS LOCK AT 8:00pm. Please allow time for traffic & parking!
Connect to your solo-erotic practice in a very loosely guided, communal space. Free from outside stimuli, like porn and fantasy (though we absolutely love those in other contexts!), explore your body, sensation, and pleasure from head to toe with no rush or agenda in sex positive and body positive community. In this space, folks have connected to their bodies, pleasure, and eroticism outside of a reciprocal, partnered experience; following illness or surgery; and as they move through the processes of healing and/or aging.
In this class, the focus is not on yoga poses and not on doing the same thing in a coordinated way together as a group.
As long as you can get down on the ground and stay there for chatting before and after +50 minutes of practice, you're all good! Rather, we use breath, movement, sound, touch, placement of attention, and setting of intentions to weave into our self-pleasuring practices.
Additional accessibility note: This class also relies on audially spoken cues, in a low-light space. If you are Deaf/hard of hearing, and use ASL, please contact us to discuss options for accessibility.
“Orgasmic Yoga involves pleasurable, intimate and transformative practices that individuals, couples, and groups can do while sexually aroused. When practiced regularly over time, Orgasmic Yoga can change your life. The practice sessions involve breathing, savoring, sound, movement, touch, placement of attention, and awareness of intention. Orgasmic Yoga is practiced where you are —solo or with the companions you choose.
Erotic practice sessions weave together the heart and genitals. This alone is a profound reason to commit to practice. Orgasmic Yoga often produces a state of arousal that is free of fantasy, unfinished emotional business, religious dogma, cultural caveats and habitual sexual behaviors. In this erotic trance state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom, happiness and freedom.” — Orgasmic Yoga Institute (http://bit.ly/OYogaInst)
This is a very powerful ritual that can stir up quite a few emotions in the process. This event is restricted to 15 total participants because of space restrictions, and I want to be able to be there for you if things come up.
It is a very loosely structured practice. After 45 minutes of Orgasmic Yoga practice there will be 5 minutes of silent savoring. Please keep in mind that Orgasmic Yoga is an individual experience in a communal erotic setting. You will be advised to not stare at each other, and not to keep eye contact. I will instead invite you to keep your eyes open in a soft gaze and breathe through any feelings that might come up.
