Yoga Therapy for Sexual Wellness

Need a different way to work through your sexual challenges?

Yoga therapy has been around for many years. We know that there is so much incredible research that shows the benefits to the practices of yoga. What we also know is how helpful yoga techniques decrease sexual challenges. We believe in talk therapy, but sometimes we need to get into our bodies to continue the healing journey. It’s incredible how many of us are discounted from our bodies. Tell me, have you ever noticed what your pelvic floor muscles feel like? Yeah, I didn’t either. And yet, there is so much research that shows how mind-body approaches can have great benefits in decreasing sexual problems. By working with a yoga therapist, you can increase sexual wholeness and connect to yourself and your partner.

I can imagine you might have not even heard of yoga for sexual wellness. But we think it’s a hidden gem and we can’t wait for you to access everything it can offer you.

  • Love Muscle Mastery (training of pelvic floor muscles)

Yoga Therapy for Sexual Wellness is NOT…

  • A one-size-fits-all model
  • Nakedness or a space for exposure. Everyone keeps their clothes on.
  • Erotic or genital touching. 
  • Sex or sexual stimulation for the purpose of achieving orgasm. This is not a space for ejaculation. In some instances, clients may become aroused during yoga movement & breathing for the purpose of self-study. 
  • This is not a place to exchange sexual energy or acts with the instructor. When here, the focus is on connecting with oneself and/or their own lover. Intentions will be clear and boundaries will be upheld. The instructor’s job is to help you.

What does Yoga Therapy for Sexual Wellness do? Why would I want to do it?

Yogic & embodiment techniques help individuals feel & sense more. This includes both the five senses and the morse subtle “ceptions” e.g. proprioception and interception. Yoga also helps individuals perceive their subtle energy, build their intuition, train their minds to concentrate, and help them feel a sense of personal power. By doing so, they can improve their physical, mental, and spiritual health. A yoga therapist can help you connect with your sexuality beyond the stories & dogma.


YOU CAN…

  • Sink into the deeply sensational being that you are
  • Embrace pleasure as a natural part of your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health
  • Harness your sexual energy for yourself and your own creativity
  • Decide who you want to share it with, when, and why
  • Feel sexual and feel connected to God/Higher Power/Higher Self/All of Creation

COME PREPARED…

  • Wear comfortable clothing that you feel relaxed and can move in – loose or snug.
  • Wear socks.
  • Do not eat a large meal for at least two hours before the session (try to eat light, easy-to-digest foods)
  • Come sober. Avoid mind-altering substances like drugs or alcohol before our sessions.
  • We will move at a pace that is comfortable for you. 
  • YOUR EXPERIENCE IS YOUR EXPERIENCE. All experiences are valid. You do not have to be anything other than what you are <3 You are loved, you are lovable, you are love.
