Cuddle Yoga with Leah Kenyon & Deborah Rosenbaum, MT

Living in Tantra Community Tantra Education

January 23

March 19

Time: 7 pm – 8:30 pm

A safe, light-hearted space for adults to receive the therapeutic benefits of platonic touch,

Cost: Love Offering

Cuddle Yoga is a safe, light-hearted space for adults to exchange the therapeutic benefits of non-romantic touch. It’s specially designed for people who give, give, give, and need to recharge: mental health professionals, educators, massage therapists, parents, people in strained relationships, singles. If you need to refuel, this workshop is for you. Numerous studies show the physical and mental health benefits of touch, but many people are not getting the touch they need to stay healthy.

In Cuddle Yoga you’ll experience greeting hugs and two-handed handshakes; hand, shoulder, and foot massage and back scratching; longer embraces while answering meaningful and fun questions; quiet snuggling during mindful breathing; arms-around-waist in a circle; back-to-back meditations, and the Spoon Train-lining up on the floor for a restful, comforting group snuggle.

Students who reserve ahead receive two thank you gifts from Leah and Deborah. These gifts are not available at the door: $40 off suggested donation for a 2-hour, in-home private Tantra session for singles (regular $120), and 20% off full body massage with cranio-sacral therapy (regular price $80).

Living in Tantra is donation-based. Tantra is the art of using pleasure in a conscious way to awaken to the divine beings we are; it’s the practice unconditional love.
