Skyclad yoga massage retreat: Embrace the Body, Free the Spirit
Skyclad supports your personal inquiry in a safe, nurturing environment at our intimate and rural Metchosin property and studio, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, 25 minutes from d/t Victoria.
Ron Stewart, founder of Skyclad, with distinguished guest facilitators, offer a framework for personal expansion through classes, workshops and retreats in Yoga, Massage and Sexual Wellness.
Participants have the choice of private one on one sessions or participating in open, community based practices.
Skyclad’s diverse programming offers opportunities for a broad range of genders and sexualities to participate.
Ron Stewart has been performing and exploring movement innovation for 30 years. His professional career as one of Canada’s most prominent male contemporary dancers, directly influences his understanding, and teaching of somatic practices.
His studies in Somatic Experiencing (current) and Sexological Bodywork (certified 2011), have refined his interests toward the realm of sexual wellness.
Drawing from yoga practice to support the benefits of Somatic Experiencing, Sexological Bodywork and deep movement explorations, Ron guides and supports as expansion rises from contraction, light illuminates shadow and breath brings you into the moment.
Regardless of how we identify ourselves, we live in a culture which does not celebrate sexuality. From puberty, we are discouraged from exploring, at which time very little is discussed regarding sex, how, what, why, health: mentally or physically. Many of us stumble along, making it up as we go. Skyclad creates an opportunity to revisit with curiosity our god given right to be erotic playful and loving.
