Taoist Massage

 Taoist Orgasmic Massage for Men

We will be running more Taoist Orgasmic Massage workshops in 2014. If you are interested, please email us at nakedyogasydney@gmail.com to be notified of upcoming workshops.

 

Whether you are a gay, bi or straight man, it is extremely important to be able to experience closeness and intimacy with other men. The possibilities of genuine closeness and intimacy between men in our culture are very rare, even in gay friendly spaces.

  

This one day technique workshop  and will give you the opportunity to learn:

  • to understand why breath is so important to us as sexual beings and why it is such an important part of the Tantra and Taoist teachings
  • how to breath more effectively
  • techniques and practices in an erotic massage that will enhance your experience of eroticism
  • to go more deeply into the experience of sensuality and ecstasy
  • how to express what you like and how you like to be touched
  • to gain confidence stepping into your erotic power through massage
  • to experience giving and receiving enhanced erotic massage and touch in a safe, supportive environment where your well being is genuinely cared for.
  • to experience the Taoist - Big Draw or holistic orgasm.

Our goal in this workshop to create a space which is relaxed, sensual and offer the opportunity to experience the healing energies of tantra, taoist and other spiritual and mystical traditions.

 

Couples: We welcome and support couples who wish to participate in the workshop. The structure of the workshop involves working with other participants during the day. If you would prefer to work exclusively as a couple during the day, can you please discuss this with us in advance so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Weekly Classes      

Regular weekly classes are held at our Princes Highway Studio on:

  • Wednesday 7.30pm
  • Saturday 9.15am
  • Sunday 6.00pm

No bookings are necessary for regular classes - just turn up.  

Cleaning Your Yoga Mat

I am often asked - How do I clean my yoga mat?. Here are a few helpful tips:

 

Washing your mat in the washing machine is not recommended.

 

Place the mat in a bath with warm water and a few caps of white vinegar. Give it a good soak and move it around to help remove the sweat, body oils and dirt. Hang it on the clothesline to thoroughly dry (sunlight is also a great germ killer).

 

Do not use detergents (even if they are environmentally friendly) as they tend to be absorbed into the mat making it slippery the next time you use it.

 

If you don't have a bath, make a cleaning solution with water and white vinegar (equal parts), or water and a couple of drops of tea tree oil in a spray bottle. Vinegar and tea tree oil contain ant-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

 

Spray and wipe down your mat with a soft cloth or paper towel. This can be done after each time you use your mat.

Hopefully there are more days of winter behind us than in front of us. In many cultures the Winter Solstice marks the reversal of the Sun's ebbing in the sky and signifies concepts of rebirth of or new beginnings. So why not make naked yoga part of your program of renewal. As the days get longer we can start to look forward to spring, which is only a month or so away.

 

We will continue to heat the studio during the cooler months, so it is a great time of the year to get naked and enjoy the benefits of yoga, the freedom of being naked and a great way to shake off the winter hibernation.

 

There are lots of things happening for Naked Yoga Sydney over the coming months, so hopefully you'll be able to join us for a class, a workshop or our Annual Blue Mountains Retreat.

 

In addition to our regular weekly classes, Touch More Tantric Classes will be held on the last Thursday of the month. These are being held at new times and at a new venue, so please see the article in this newsletter or the website http://nakedyogasydney.tripod.com

 

Regular naked yoga classes are held on Wednesdays at 7.30pm, Saturdays at 9.15am and Sundays at 6.00pm.

 

I look forward to sharing a class with you soon :-)

       5 Reasons To Get Naked Every Day      

Extract of an article by Nicola Jane Hobbs http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-11511/5-reasons-to-get-naked-every-day.html

 

1. To own your story

 

Your body tells your story. When you get to know your body, you get to own your story. And when you own your story, you get to write the ending.

 

2. To embrace your completeness

 

You will never be more than when you are naked. The word "naked" comes from the Old English "nacod," meaning "bare." And the word "bare" comes from the Lithuanian word "basas," meaning "complete in itself." That encapsulates the power of being naked: it makes you see that you are complete, you are good enough, and you have the power within you to do and be all that you want.

 

3. To experience vulnerability

 

Being naked is the epitome of how vulnerability feels. Being naked is about being vulnerable. And being vulnerable is about having the courage to dare greatly, to let yourself be deeply seen, and to live your life from your heart.

 

4. To show the world that you are uniquely beautiful

 

Stripping bare and making peace with your body is one way of giving a huge middle finger to a world that says you need to look or act a certain way. By declothing you are giving a metaphorical punch in the face to a society that promotes a one dimensional standard of beauty. You are beautiful. Full stop.

 

5. To face your fears and liberate yourself

 

We spend so much money on clothes, but some of the best moments in life are enjoyed without them. It is in these moments we face our fears and can free ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. 

At Naked Yoga Sydney our goal is to provide an opportunity for real male community and holistic social interaction between supportive, centered individuals who enjoy the practice of yoga as well as the company of other naked men. We strive to provide an atmosphere of comradery, body-acceptance, and sensuality (not sexuality). The classes are open to adult men of all ages and body types and sexual orientation
