My Personal Experience With the Yoga of Intimacy

Are you single and you finding yourself attracting the wrong types?  Are you searching for the right partner to share a real connection with?  Do your relationships burn out fast or turn into friend zone?  Are you already in a relationship and you feel like it’s become dull and needs a boost?  Well, if any of these scenarios ring true for you, I have a recommendation for you to check out. (Bonus: If you live in the Los Angeles area, the workshops take place in sunny Santa Monica, CA.)

It’s the Yoga of Intimacy, and it’s led by the beautiful couple Londin Angel Winters and Justin Patrick Pierce.  After interviewing the couple on my podcast, Nothing Off Limits, I was honored to be invited to their Co-ed workshop on a beautiful Friday evening in a gorgeous, spiritually-charged loft space.  There, I experienced something completely unexpected and amazing.  An equal number of men and women, most complete strangers to one another, gathered to participate. In a completely G-rated practice over a 3 hour period, we were all blown wide open with vulnerability and successfully created real, intimate connections with each other within a safe space.  Don’t get the wrong idea.  It’s not sexual, and you don’t touch your partner.  It’s subtle energy exchange through the eyes and the body that teaches you to be authentic in your expression.  No “performing” is allowed.  Londin and Justin lead the practice, and they have you switch partners continuously throughout the practice and provide gentle reminders and corrections to stay connected to what you’re doing.  With each exercise, you reach new levels of openness, creativity and heart awareness.

I’ll admit that I almost jetted twice during the first hour, because I’m not personally used to being so vulnerable, especially with a stranger.  Yet because the men in this workshop were so willing to be there, and because each man put forth his best effort to “hold” the women in their space and not run away from her, no matter what they were experiencing (tears, laughter, anger, etc.), it allowed me to expand further.

Without giving too much away about what happens during the workshop, I will say that I left there feeling like I had released years of pain.  I was exhausted!  For those 3 hours, I tore down my personal walls, accessed my true core, and said hello again to my personal centered place of love and giving.  That might sound wild or weird to you, but if you’re frustrated with your relationships at any level and you’re ready and willing to go deeper within yourself to change that pattern (this is the key – you have to be ready!), then this is definitely something to check out.

10 Ways Men Push Women Away…

I host dating podcasts (soon to be on iTunes and can’t wait!), so I think about relationships a lot.  And this article on YourTango totally caught my attention and is timely in terms of what my gal friends and I have been recently chatting about, so I wanted to share it with all of you as well, and hopefully spark some thinking on the topic.

I think there are many reasons why a woman may lose interest in a man or be very hesitant to get involved with him.  Sometimes it’s a lack of physical chemistry and she can’t help but to see you as a friend.  Sometimes it’s because you thought it would be attractive to send her penis pics after 2 dates.  But the big one for me is if she’s not feeling safe with you.  As James Michael Sama writes,  “She needs to know she can count on you, that you will be there, and that you are the real deal.” Hooray, James!  Yes, indeed!  ‘Tis true that a good woman is not going to automatically let a guy move in to have a relationship with her television and couch instead of her, or allow him to show up only when he is in a mood for sex or some chill company.

Good gawd, I love discovering when a man is the real deal, a seeming rarity in the big city of L.A.  It goes without saying, once a woman knows she can count on a guy and feels safe with him, all kinds of good things will happen for that man.  He’ll finally get that chillaxing company and the laid back woman he can mess with, because he took time to prove to her that she can be safe and let herself go with him.  So guys, don’t be afraid to put some effort in, beyond bringing over a bottle of wine and some chocolates.  And it really is ok to get to know her beyond her looks!  Yes I know, it takes time and effort and doesn’t happen magically overnight (boo!!), but if you really care about the woman, it will be well worth it.  I promise. 🙂

With no further adieu, here is the article that prompted my sharing.  Feel free to send me your thoughts, comments, etc.  Oh, one more thing:  if you’ve got a great story that you’d like to share about your relationship, contact me to get on the podcast!!
