The Pre-Birthday #OrgasmicYoga Challenge: Days 8 & 9

January 9, 2017

January 8, 2017 I facilitated the first group Orgasmic Yoga of the year which was also the last one of my 20s. I must say, I appreciate the practice and can get more into it and get more out of it from the communal experience – especially when I’ve been going solo for a bit. I have to be “on my game” to an extent since I’m facilitating, giving suggestions and…


The Pre-Birthday #OrgasmicYoga Challenge: Day 7

January 8, 2017

January 7, 2017   Tonight’s practice was a little last minute, but I like the way it worked out. It wasn’t erotic at all, though I did stretch and dance while seated, breathe, and do kegels. I set my playlist and wrote out a bunch of intentions for the year and for my upcoming 30th. Some, I’ve been implementing the past week, and some I have to work hard at…


The Pre-Birthday #OrgasmicYoga Challenge: Day 6

January 6, 2017

January 6, 2017 Before I got started, I had some resistance. That’s the difficulty in doing a daily regimen of some kind, whether it’s exercising or self-pleasuring. Once I decided to go for it, I had a craving for one of my favorite dildos. I hadn’t used it in a while, so it was kind of a big deal. This was a much more targeted self-pleasuring session. Not about any…


The Pre-Birthday #OrgasmicYoga Challenge: Day 5

January 5, 2017

January 5, 2017 I skipped day 4 because I was feeling dizzy and didn’t want to push myself. I borderline wanted to skip tonight’s because I had a weird headache/fog thing, but I made this commitment to myself to show up as best as I could and wanted to honor that.  Also, I remembered that orgasms can sometimes help get rid of headaches.  My mind wandered a little bit. I…


The Pre-Birthday #OrgasmicYoga Challenge: Day 3

January 3, 2017

January 3, 2017 Night three of an extended practice is around where I start to find some resistance. This usually means there’s some good learning to be had, if I just trust the process. I didn’t have much of an agenda, or any direction I wanted to go in tonight which can feel frustrating. In addition to this, while I felt a little playful, I didn’t have much of an…


The Pre-Birthday #OrgasmicYoga Challenge: Day 2

January 2, 2017

January 2, 2017 Tonight’s Orgasmic Yoga practice was very fulfilling. I started a bit before the actual 30 minutes. I showered and did a hair treatment which took some time. Once I got to the main part of the practice, I decided to use a playlist since it helps me with pacing and staying present.  I spent time dancing and playing with a scarf I like. I danced with no…


The Pre-Birthday #OrgasmicYoga Challenge: Day 1

January 1, 2017

January 1, 2017 My first Orgasmic Yoga practice of 2017 was fairly lazy, if I’m being totally honest. There’s no judgement here. It was much more of an exercise in mindful masturbation, focusing on breath, heart connection, savoring, and exploring some touch that I may not typically do. I had to keep batting away distracting thoughts, not following them along as far as I could. Each time I caught myself…


What I Learned from a Month of Daily Orgasmic Yoga

June 11, 2016

At the beginning of May, it was my intention to do a daily practice of Orgasmic Yoga.  Somehow, I managed to stick it out the entire 31 days. I did a practice of about 30 minutes each night and if I told you that every night was orgasms, fun, and I was fully present the entire time, I’d be lying. It is a vastly different experience to stay present on…


Masturbation May: A Daily Orgasmic Yoga Practice for a Month

May 1, 2016

I have had a steady Orgasmic Yoga practice since November 2015. Once a month, and (for a time) once a week for Six Weeks, I’ve facilitated an Orgasmic Yoga circle. The circles have varied a little bit. Some were larger than others. Each time, there has been a blend of familiar faces, friends, and some people who were new to the practice.  Six months of a consistent, communal practice of mindful masturbation. That just hit…


Practice Makes Practice: What I Learned from Six Weeks of Orgasmic Yoga

April 7, 2016

First, let me explain a bit about what Orgasmic Yoga is:  Orgasmic Yoga (OY) – as I have done it, and my experience of it – is not “actual” yoga. The term “yoga” in this context was originally used by the creators of this practice to evoke the notion of a practice that must be practiced. We weave conscious breath, movement, sound, touch, dance, as well as the placement of attention and…
