Stuff I Like
So how did we get into yoga and romance products, which seem like two somewhat unconnected areas. I have been doing yoga for over 15 years and I found myself able to grow more insightful, reflectful, revitalized through my yoga practice. Some of the the most profound insights have come to me on my yoga mat since I was able to get in touch with some deep inner wisdom. I was able to hear the quiet voice of my soul through my practice. I knew this was going to be part of my life path… my purpose…. my dharma and wanted to be involved in this in a way that I was able to powerfully impact others as well. I witnessed my body tranform… my mind evolve… and my heart starting to open.
I found myself becoming calmer and more even-keeled. I learn postures that could help with all kinds of physical ailments and illnesses ranging from depression, anxiety, low back pain, shoulder tightness, neck stiffness and insomnia.
I dove deep into my practice and to learning how to teach yoga.
I wanted to transport people through movement, postures, breath and intention.
As far as the romance part of the pie goes, a few years ago me and my sweetie were doing a regular yoga practice together and he really wanted the practice to be a way for us to connect with each other. We started to experiment with poses where we were doing the pose together…sometimes mirroring each other, sometimes juxtaposing our bodies…. sometimes adjusting and assisting each other. Some of the poses were silly. Some were nurturing and restorative. Some were strengthening. Some were challenging. And then some of them were very challenging. We also added a Thai massage element to our couples yoga practice. I always felt like massage is a tangible expression of love and I wanted to teach couples ways to nurture and heal through the magic of massage.
Through our combined partner practice we were able to connect on a kinesthetic level and explore new levels of support, balance, trust, buoyancy, freedom and also find out where our limitations where as well as learn other ways to communicate boundaries and limits in a compassionate way. This new style of communicating, not with words but by touch, intention, movement and breath opened up a venue for us to explore physicality and energy within our relationship. We wanted to share this joy with as many people as possible.
We teach couples yoga and romantic mini-retreats on a regular basis in the Philadelphia metro area and wanted to find ways to share this magical, blissful feeling you get when you feel completely bonded with your significant other through yoga, massage and other holistic modalities. We also wanted to offer products to couples in crisis that didn’t know where to turn and didn’t know if couples counseling was right for them. Most of our products fit into a holistic, vibrant, living lifestyle for singles and couples that crave adventure, intimacy, spiritual growth and self-actualization.
