WORKSHOP FAQ

Are there ID or minimum age requirements?

All attendees must be 18+. 21+ for cannabis+CBD infused classes.

What do I need to bring to class?

High quality mats will be provided at the LA workshops, but the room does get pretty hot, and you will sweat. You'll want to bring a large towel to cover your mat and clean up with, and it's always a good idea to have your own water bottle if possible. You will need to bring your own yoga mat for any workshop outside of LA. Silicone based lubricant will be made available to share at the Tantric Edging workshops, but bringing your own personal preferred lube is encouraged. This will allow you to get more whenever you need without waiting for the shared bottles to make their way to you.

Is it okay if I'm new to Yoga/Tantra/Movement2Music/Fitness?

Newbies are welcome, but the group Vinyasa Yoga classes flow pretty quickly. If possible, you may want to take a non nude beginners class at another studio or even online before attending.

Is it okay to attend a Tantra Partner Yoga workshop solo?

Definitely! Most people do. You'll be able work with others from the group. Solo attendees will change partners multiple times during the workshop, getting the opportunity to explore multiple connections. Couples will have the option to rotate or work only with each other.

Do I have to fit a certain body type or age to attend class?

Not at all! All shapes, sizes, and ages 18+ are welcome and encouraged to come celebrate themselves. This is judgement and shame free zone. As long as you are fit and healthy enough for an athletic yoga/fitness practice, you will be able to participate. These workshops are open to Cis and Trans Men. Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated.

Is there sex involved in these workshops?

While there will be no penetration, the Tantra workshops are Sex Positive experiences and sexual activity between consenting adults may take place. You will never be directed to perform a sex act. Each person interacts with the group at their own level of comfort. The Vinyasa Yoga and Naked Fitness classes do not involve any sexual activity.

What if I get an erection in one of the non-sexual classes?

Erections are natural and something to be celebrated, but you are always welcome to drop into Child’s Pose if you feel like you need a moment to come down before rejoining the flow.

Are there showers available?

There is a shower, but because of the quick turnover between events, it will only be made available to those who are taking multiple workshops that day. Men attending more than one are welcome to rinse off briefly between workshops, but may want to bring an extra towel. Body wipes will be provided for everyone in attendance.

Will there be a filming/photography?

No photos or video are permitted. We also ask everyone attending to respect the privacy of their fellow participants, and not disclose who was in attendance to anyone outside of the group.

What is the refund policy?

Full refunds are available through eventbrite up to 7 days before any workshop. If you discover you are unable to attend within the 7 day window, you are welcome to gift or resell your ticket. That person will need to have your ticket or confirmation email printed or pulled up on their phone, as well as their ID when they arrive for the workshop. Although there are no exchanges for missed workshops, you may reach out about being placed on the waitlist for the next events in your city. You will be able to use your missed class ticket for any future event of equal or lesser value that doesn’t sell out.

TANTRA PARTNER YOGA  We'll begin similarly to a slow restorative yoga class, connecting with one another through breath and partner yoga.

You and your partner will give and receive each other's body weight, enjoying the build of sensual chi as you grind and breathe together. Solo attendees will rotate partners multiple times. Couples will have the option to join the rotation or practice only with each other. This class is All Levels and does not require a partner to attend.

YOGA

Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog) - Probably one of most “famous” yoga poses. LEVEL - 1. BENEFITS - Stretches the shoulders, hamstrings, calves, arches, and hands/Strengthens the arms, back, shoulders, and legs/Improves Digestion/Therapeutic for high blood pressure, asthma, depression, headaches, anxiety, flat feet, shoulder pain, neck pain, back pain, and more...Let’s break it down! 1. Come to all 4s on your mat with your knees under your hips and your hands placed slightly forward of your shoulders. Have the hands facing forward or slightly turned out and the fingers spread wide. 2. Pulling up into your belly, press the earth away as you lift the hips and send the tailbone towards to sky behind you. Feet should be hip width apart, but you can take them a bit wider if it feels better on your body. 3. Firm your triceps towards your ears, wrapping the eye of your elbows towards the front, while simultaneously pulling the shoulder blades up into the back to make space for the neck to hang between the arms. Keep the weight even through the ball of all 5 fingers, but pay special attention to grounding the space between the thumbs and first fingers. They tend to creep up off the mat. 4. Firm the inners thighs back as you reach the heels towards the earth. My hamstrings are tight, so you’ll notice I bend my knees for a bit to help find more lift in my tail and space in shoulders and low back. Trying to force the heels down or legs straight when your body isn’t ready will tug on your lumbar. Once I felt ready, I worked my legs back towards straight, but you can keep the legs bent the entire time if it feels best for you!

Balasana (Child’s Pose) - A restful and restorative pose. LEVEL - Beginner. BENEFITS - Stretches the hips, thighs, and ankles/Therapeutic for back pain, neck pain, anxiety, depression, and fatigue....Let’s break it down! 1. Come to all 4s on your mat with your big toes together and your knees slightly wider than your torso. 2. Press your butt towards your heels as you stretch your arms forward and release your head towards the mat. *Important - Your butt may not touch your heels and your head may not touch the mat. You can place a folded blanket or yoga block under your forehead to support the neck if your head is hovering. You can also place a folded blanket in the space between your butt and heels if you’d like added support there. 3. Spread the fingers with the hands turned forward or slightly out, as your firm the triceps towards your ears. 4. Take slow even breaths and stay in the pose as long as you like. VARIATIONS - You can bring the arms to rest by your side for a more effortless and restorative effect/ You can interlock the fingers behind you with the knuckles facing towards the back, while stretching the arms towards the front for a really nice shoulder opening stretch. If you can’t lift your hands off your hips once your fingers are interlocked, hold a yoga strap or t-shirt between your hands instead to create more space for you to get into the stretch.

Eka Pada Rajakapotasana *Variation (Pigeon Pose) - basically the best hip opener ever. LEVEL - Beginner. BENEFITS - Lengthens the hip flexors and stretches the groin and glutes. Releases built up trauma, stress, anxiety, and depression stored in the hips. Therapeutic for sciatica, digestion problems, and back/hip pain....Let’s break it down! 1. Begin in Downward Dog . Step the left foot up to the front center of the mat, and lie the leg down on it’s side with the left knee near the left hand and the left foot about half way between the right hand and the right hip. *Only folks with very open hips will have the front leg parallel to the front of the mat. Most of us will be set up with the front foot inching closer towards the hip. 2. Flip your back toes down, reaching through the inner thigh to square the hips to the earth. 3. Find lift and length in the torso before slowly crawling yourself forward over the front leg. 4. Breathe and let gravity do it’s job, releasing more of your body weight as your hips begin to open. *For a more restorative or comfortable version - place a folded blanket under your forehead or in the space between your front glute and the mat.
