Cuddle Yoga

June 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Living in Tantra Cuddle Yoga

Platonic touch for the mood-boost you need. Come get your hug on!

What is Cuddle Yoga?

Cuddle Yoga is a safe, light-hearted space for adults to exchange safe, healthy, platonic touch.

Cuddle Yoga is a two-hour workshop for adults of any relationship status to get the platonic touch they need to stay healthy. With proven exercises and expert guidance, you’ll be gently led through touch-based, oxytocin-rich exercises that will boost your mood and leave you feeling great.

Cuddle Yoga is a safe, light-hearted space for adults to exchange safe, healthy, platonic touch.

Numerous studies show the physical and mental health benefits of touch–boosted immune system, lowered blood pressure, increased digestion, slower aging–but many people are not getting the touch they need to stay healthy.  In our culture, touch is associated with relationship, but what if you’re not in relationship? Or, what if your relationships don’t include all the touch you need? Cuddle Yoga provides the safe, healthy, platonic touch you need to feel calm and connected.

“I’m so grateful for Cuddle Yoga! I was a little nervous at first, but the exercises are enjoyable and made me feel at ease quickly. At the end of class I feel warm and gooey and ready to take on the world–right after a good nap. Ha ha.” – Melissa T., Grand Junction

“[Jan] and I met at your class and felt and immediate connection. Now we’re dating and falling in love.” – Dave B., Grand Junction


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 21 and over.

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 review The Rules to make Cuddle Yoga safe and enjoyable for everyone.

What is Tantra?

The practice of Tantra is over 5,000 years old. It’s an eclectic mix of practices from around the world to step into Who You Really Are. The Shivaic tradition define Tantra as a lifestyle of following your desire in full self-awareness, with full self-love, and no self judgement, Your desire, of course, is a reflection of your true self. When we are living our true selves in the world, we are naturally in sync with God/Divine/Universe, Who accepts us just as we are. The result is a passion-filled life, loving and being loved more deeply than we could imagine.

Isn’t Tantra All About Sex?

No. Tantra is about stepping into Who You Really Are. Expressing yourself sexually has a lot to do with that, though! There are plenty of sex Tantra practices (neo-Tantra) that help couples experience greater physical pleasure, open their hearts to each other, and experience God in the bedroom. Yoga for Lovers will teach you some of those basics techniques. For more explicit sex Tantra techniques, book Dakini Leah for a private session.
