Do you have the relationships you want and the love life you desire?
Or are you fumbling around, doing your best with limited tools and crossing your fingers and hoping it'll just get better?
For most us, early sex education was a joke and we’ve relied on faulty “on the job training” to figure it out. Meanwhile, our culture bombards us with confusing messages about love and sex and it’s hard to find good information about authentic intimacy and pleasure.
That’s why we designed and updated our 12 part series on Understanding Sexuality. To break down the basics and fill in the gaps. Our classes are filled with relatable information and tangible tools, covering so much of what got skipped the first time.
We offer a no-nonsense, informal environment where all you need is an open mind and some curiosity. If you’re an adult, you’re welcome! When you know yourself and have solid practices, greater confidence and fulfillment is possible.
Even if you’ve attended before, there’s more to learn, so come again! We’ve added four new classes and more experiential practices, and yes, everyone still keeps their clothes on. Each class stands on its own so drop-ins
are welcome, but to get the most out of it, we recommend taking all twelve classes.
To sweeten the deal, if you pay up front for the series, you get one free!
Why us? We’re two passionate and enthusiastic somatic sex educators who are devoted to inspiring more pleasure, personal freedom and fulfillment in the world.
Join us, and discover all the things your parents would have taught you had they only known.

ABOUT CHRIS & ANARA:
Anara and Chris have been dear friends for many years. After spending time exploring women’s culture in a collective focusing on authentic relating, inner journey work, and sexual health, they decided to further their studies and get certified in somatic sexological bodywork.
They have had tandem businesses working individually with clients and have now joined together to bring accurate information about bodies, sex, intimacy and self-love to the public.
“We are sex educators who have directly experienced the pain and confusion of being brought up in a world where mixed messages about love, desire, and sex are the cultural norm. We’ve spent many years untangling and clarifying what true sexual health and empowerment feels like, and we are passionate about creating opportunities for individuals, couples, and groups to safely explore their own experiences to find self-acceptance and personal liberation. We believe that through compassion, guidance, self-reflection, and dedication, this kind of awakening is available for all of us.”
Join us for all twelve classes and get one for free.
