Program Description

Pleasure is your birthright. Reclaim it by delving into the full spectrum of your sexual and reproductive health: from arousal to climax, menstruation to menopause, and maiden to crone.

Join somatic sexologist and yoga teacher Lara Catone and learn to stand in your power through science-based sex education and the mysticism of ancient women’s wisdom. Through ceremony, personal inquiry, interactive group work, and dynamic visual presentation, you will explore:

  • Sexy science lessons on the complete map of your sexual anatomy and physiology to understand how female arousal works in your brain and body
  • Nourishing yoga and breathwork to learn to inhabit your body fully and energize yourself through movement and the circulation of breath
  • Sensual movement and dance to embody pleasure as a pathway to accessing your body’s innate wisdom and personal power
  • Movement practices and yoga to evoke your creative potential and rituals to honor your unique passages as a woman.

You will come fully home to your body and your thriving health, own your authentic feminine expression, and fuel your life force from a new relationship with power and pleasure.
