Moving Into Intimacy - Workshops with Louis Gervais (USA) - Movement and Dance Artist, Yogi, Intimacy Coach.
Intimacy - A Key Ingredient in a Happy Life
When we get a regular dose of intimacy, we feel sweetly connected with life and our relationships. We know a sense of trust and ease. We feel seen and our partnership feels fed with new energy. In the intimate moments, we feel grounded and at peace as our fears drift away.
Embark on a course to intimacy. See clearly the roadblocks that stop you. Know the small efforts it takes to get there. Although there is no formula, this course inspires creative new pathways. It provides insight into the mind of an intimate connection and the exciting role that the body and movement play in taking you there.
Discover inspiring new creative pathways to the intimacy you desire in your life.
You can come for one, two or all three of these workshops as it fits your schedule.

When we seek intimacy, we embark on a journey with ourselves and our partners. We slowly move from one mode of consciousness into another. From the more familiar, powerful thinking brain to the easeful, relaxed mind and the emergent sensing, feeling body.
Intimacy is peace and presence. It is connection and healing. It is timelessness and closeness that remind us of the need for and the power of touch in our lives.
In order to move into intimacy, we leave language behind and dive in to the body and the senses. We meditate on touch. We let curiosity lead us. It takes a little time but intimacy is always close at hand whenever we choose to visit.
The playful movement exercises will help you bypass resistance. The course lectures will help you understand the journey so you can create your own pathways to the deeper connection you seek with your partner.
Here’s a testimonial from a recent participant.
“By the end of the class I knew I was in a different space and I could sense others were as well. I know the timidness with which I entered the room was non-existent at the end. It helped me understand the power of being present with another person just for the sake of sharing one another's space, one another's sense of breath and touch and the powerful door that those open up towards not only another human being but the door it opens up within ones self.” - Matt
Louis Gervais - Movement and Dance Artist, Yogi, Intimacy Coach
Louis Gervais has been getting people moving and connecting for more than 30 years. From creatively moving first graders to creating community with high school students, Louis especially enjoys bringing physical creativity to non-dancers. He first began exploring movement at the age of five and during his years as a dancer, went on to perform with more than 25 professional companies around the world.
Louis has created numerous works as a solo artist and holds a Masters of Fine Arts degree in dance. In his studies, he split his focus between danced religions and Somatics, the movement practices that explore the relationship between the body and mind.
Moving Intimacy is a synthesis of art, Somatics and Louis’ mature practice of meditation, improvisation, sacred intimacy, Tantra and yoga. It has evolved over the years from a weekend workshop to a ritual/performance entitled IN TO ME/SEE with 10 dancers and life music. And now, for the first time, as an online course.
