Oct 20, 2023, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Amarah Studio and Boutique, 954 Brookline Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15226, USA

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Join us at Amarah Studio and Boutique for an all-encompassing event that will transform the way you think about yoga and sexual healing. 

This event will be led by Meagan Narvaez, a licensed sex and relationship therapist (The Passion Lab) , and Deena Jackson, a certified trauma-sensitive yoga instructor. 

In addition to a yoga practice and group discussion, two Pittsburgh-based vendors will be at the event:

  • Mona Wiley of Buzz Me In will have a variety of pleasure products to demo at the event. Mona will also be available to answer questions or provide recommendations to personalize your needs. You will be able to purchase any of the pleasure products online. 
  • Mark Mohler a.k.a. Sanquine Teapots, a potter and tea enthusiast, will be serving warm, cozy vibes by brewing us oolong tea (see below for more details). Mark will also have select items from his store available for purchase. Mark's Website

More Details

Doors open at 5:45pm -- you will have the chance to settle in, grab some snacks, and peruse the boutique upstairs and vendors' booths.

Starting at 6pm: a brief introduction to the event, the hosts, and the vendors, followed by a 50-minute trauma-sensitive yoga practice facilitated by Deena Jackson. 

After our trauma-informed yoga practice, Mark will serve us tea from the teaware he makes in his home studio here in Pittsburgh. The tea being served is Traditional Dong Ding, a brilliant, roasted oolong tea produced in Taiwan. The tea is processed with old techniques to create the cleanest, brightest possible flavors. If you become friends with the teaware used during the event, you will have the option to purchase it, and/or other select products.

Since Traditional Dong Ding is known for its calming energy, we chose this tea to nurture a safe, warm and soothing environment as Meagan Narvaez, licensed therapist, facilitates a discussion about how we can use what we learn in yoga practices for sexual healing, ways in which trauma can impact sex, and how to navigate these challenges to have fulfilling sexual experiences with yourself and/or your partner(s). The discussion is meant to be as conversational as it is educational, but sharing is optional.
