- Hi Ron:
Great to see you on Saturday.
I was thinking about how influential you've been to me, even though we haven't seen each other that often. ... The couple of workshops I've taken with you have also been meaningful to me, so it was really nice to finally have a private session with you. Many thanks for all of the above. Richard
- Hi, Ron.
Thanks for your message and for the session last weekend. I wasn’t expecting that kind of experience but, as you could tell, I certainly welcomed it.
...it felt good to have moved and connected that completely.
You have a tremendous generosity of spirit. I felt strong and safe in your hands.
My thanks again.
- "I was very pleased with our sessions. They gave me a glimpse of what is possible for me...
Here is one thing I have noticed -- I haven't been biting my nails. All my life I have been a terrible nail-biter. Three years ago I even started acupuncture to see if it could help me stop. Since then, things have been pretty mixed -- I still bite my nails but maybe not as badly as before acupuncture.
For weeks now they're growing and looking nice. They are almost at the end of my fingertips. On every finger! ... in fact just last week, I have seen both my acupuncturist and the lady I see for massages (both of whom I haven't seen for a long time) and they both were so surprised. My masseuse seemed shocked -- I didn't have the shoulder knots and tension I usually have. Days later, I saw my acupuncturist. After taking my pulse in a bunch of different places around my body, he joked that he didn't know what he should work on because it seemed like I have a different nervous system. "
- ... I felt so safe, honored, nurtured, loved, beautiful and worthy.
Though I am not there yet, I feel my petals opening one by one, and hope is growing that I will soon be a vibrant, colorful, fully blossomed expression of exuberance, and that I will truly love and appreciate my body so much that I will not be able to contain the dancing...
I felt light and beautiful. The response that your spirit and body work invoked in me surprised and delighted me. The experience was deeply spiritual for me...
I am now more keenly aware of the power behind speaking my desires both sexually and in my life. And presenting myself with opportunity for erotic pleasure is a powerful practice in that this energy can be transmuted into the manifestation of my dreams...
Making space for the indulgence of my pleasure is about not just sexual kicks, but the expression of my divinity and self-worth as a woman. I have been given such a lovely, powerful and unforgettable gift. I am grateful. And I thank you.
- Thank you Ron Stewart for the AMAZING 4 hour couples spa and Yoga retreat last week …….!! It was exceptional in every way. Wanna deepen your relationship, be renewed and recharged, totally pampered and spoiled?? Book yours today!
“Thank you so very much. Got home, felt lighter and elevated unlike I’ve felt in a long time. Slept all through the night till 7! That’s a lie in for me. Thank you…the BEST. I’ll be back.
- I have to say that I am still coming down from the session on Monday. I really had a very enjoyable time and you managed to take me to a “place” where I have never experienced. You are a very talented man.
- namaste ron: swimming in the ocean in a pretty bikini feels really good…..swimming naked is even better. that is how I best express the beautifully, led class with you. clothes on and practicing yoga is delicious, without ….a whole other level. thank-you
- Ron, still trying to take it all in and relive some of the experiences,
I hope to be able to draw upon our time together to strengthen my constitution and physical body. I am sure you have heard it before that you are a truly amazing man. Your innate ability to make me feel at ease and accepted is remarkable.
- Thank you for sharing your gift of touch; you are a remarkable man.
- You were so focused on my well being that it was a very unique experience to me; one I have not previously experienced. I will not soon forget the exhilaration and delight from our time together. Immediately following our session, I was overjoyed to the point of tears and was unable to speak – that’s how profound it was to me.
- “It was such a joy to meet you yesterday and to benefit from your quality skills. From the ambiance to the personal touches of heated towels and tea, it was a very memorable, sensuous, tactile, whole-body experience. For several weeks I have been unable to sleep throughout the night and have been resorting to earplugs (for adjacent highway noise) and sleeping pills. Last night, however, I was so totally at one with my body, I simply got into bed and slept soundly for about 5 hours. This is huge for me!! I’m hopeful there will be some residual carryover for the next several nights too.
- Hi, I did a drop in today and just want to express my gratitude and appreciation for an incredible experience and a very inspired class.
What simple and concise teachings, very precise and understandable directions. I left filled with radiance and silence. Thank you
- A word of appreciation for your excellent classes. Clearly your dedication, commitment, the flow and quality of your teaching makes for a most enjoyable, deep and spiritual class.
- Ron, Thank you for a magical week-end. The small number made it intimate and special ….. you are the master at bringing us all together. I now have visions of you as the alchemist brewing your new concoctions. Congrats on your new expanded awareness.
- I always want to support you Ron as you have been so important in my life
and I know the lives of many other men. I am 10 year younger because of you and all that this means.
- Refocus rejuvenate relax, these words describe my experience with Ron. I have been taking the 3 hour sessions with Ron since last October 2010. Every time I arrive at the spa we start with refocusing with yoga and movement to rediscover core strength and confidence as I surrender under his lead. After the strengthening session comes a massage and or scrub, this rejuvenates my spirit. Thai massage stands out to be absolutely outstanding. Then its time to relax in a soothing bath and rest in a wrap of warm blankets. At this stage I’m usually in another world resting or floating in clouds, it’s like a heaven experience. I highly recommend Ron and his spa – I often encourage him to train others because he is so good in what he does. Ron leads each session with his heart and truly exceeds expectations. After years of searching for the perfect massage session worldwide I come to realized that here in Victoria I have found it- perfection- way to go Ron. I wish you success in all your endeavors. What an honor and privilege to have found you! Today I stand taller I’m more confident and peaceful and I’m looking forward to my journey because of you!
- I am a repeat customer of Skyclad Yoga and my wife now plans to be one as well! Entering Ron’s warm functional studio space we immediately felt safe and welcomed. Ron’s sensitivity and attunement to each of our needs and vulnerabilities allowed the two of us to drop inhibitions that might interfere with receiving the full benefit of his expertly delivered yoga and massage treatments. The sacred nature and depth of this work that he shares moved the two of us to a new place within ourselves and in our relationship. With Ron’s help we are both just a little bit more able to embody life and love. Until next time!
- Your retreat had considerable transformative power for me and I’m very grateful for your insights. I felt so relaxed and powerful that I tackled the Malahat on Sunday without any physical complaint. My sister, a fellow cyclist, was pretty impressed. It is a rare teacher who has a gift with apt phrases, similes etc. You treat language carefully and with respect for its power and limitations. I’m a little in awe. The food was perfect too!
- I just want you to know that I had such a good time at the class.
The next day I could certainly feel that my muscles were challenged.
It felt good though and not sore.
More importantly I thought the class was an excellent way to focus on building self from the inside out. Thank you for being patient with me.
What a great group of people too in the class.
- All in all a fun and most enjoyable, and educational evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the energy, the sharing, the openness and the sense of well being. The light dinner was sincerely appreciated. Thanks for coordinating a remarkable activity.
- After Monday’s yoga I was a different body in the pool—my shoulders and hips were way more loose than I can recall and my stroke length increased with more power available. Thank you again for guiding my body further into/out-of itself.

What about erections?
Most of us were nervous for our first class but the atmosphere we are creating is one of acceptance and non-judgment, it’s surprising how quickly we forget we’re nude. Erections are not an issue and in fact should be celebrated as part of our manhood, although to be honest, you’ll probably be working too hard to get hard but in the event that you experience an erection enjoy the sensation, but breathe and continue with your practice.
