Event description

Description


Are you feeling a little beat up and drained? Don't you wish you could get some touch without all the complications of a relationship or commitment issues? Come get your hug on!

Cuddle Yoga is a safe, light-hearted space for adults to exchange the benefits of non-romantic touch.

This class is 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

  • Friendly greeting hugs and two-handed handshakes
  • An easy new massage technique to give and receive

  • Longer embraces while answering meaningful and fun questions

  • Quiet snuggling during mindful breathing

  • Arms-around-waist in a circle

  • Back-to-back meditations

  • The Spoon Train—lining up on the floor for a restful, comforting group snuggle


Each month you'll learn massage techniques and practical skills for giving and receiving the intimacy you crave.

FAQs

What sort of exercises make up Cuddle Yoga?

A lot of hugging in various flavors and intensities. You'll also be guided to giving and receiving hand, foot and shoulder rubs (ahh), back scratching (yup...that's the spot), and we all end up in one big relaxing cuddle puddle.

Is there an age limit to enter the event?

Yes. Cuddle Yoga is for adults 18 and over. Due to the nature of the event, please make other arrangements for your kiddos.

How is Cuddle Yoga related to Tantra?

Tantra recognizes between any two people there is a sacred temple where loving energy is exchanged; we need only to remove any obstacles to love. In this workshop you'll learn about seeing another person as a manifestation of Divine Source energy and about sacred energy exchange in a non-romantic setting. Many people in our society don't get the touch they need to stay healthy--the obstacles are too great. They believe they need to be in romantic partnership, or they aren't in a position to get hugs from family. Cuddle Yoga uses Tantric ideas to remove those obstacles and let love flow.


What items are in place to ensure safety?

Before each workshop we'll reveiw guidelines to make Cuddle Yoga safe and enjoyable for everyone:

1. No touching "swimsuit areas."

2. Report inappropriate touch to the workshop faciltator immediately.

3. Unless during one of the exercises, you must ask to touch another participant. For example, "May I give you a hug?"

4. Respect your own boundaries by saying no to touch you don't want. For example, "I'm full and don't need another hug right now. Thanks for asking!"

So far, everyone has found Cuddle Yoga to be fun, safe, and fulfilling.


What should I wear?

Comfy clothes you can move in easily. Sweat/yoga pants and t-shirts are perfect. Jeans and skirts/dresses are not recommended.

Nope! Save a tree. If you're registered, we know you're coming.
