Description of the retreat

From the pleasure of practice to the practice of pleasure.

An osteopath and yoga teacher, joined by a gynecologist, an obstetrician, and a psychosexologist, investigate the mysterious universe of pleasure.

From the purely physical to the psychoemotional, moral and social aspects.

A journey that starts from anatomy, from the organs of pleasure, to discover the mind-body connection, which is fundamental to our overall well-being, and fundamental to our sexual pleasure.

Because we like only what our brains like.

Awareness comes from knowledge; yoga practices, discussion times, and hands-on exercises to learn about yourself and become more aware of your potential pleasure!
