Ron Stewart has been offering men’s yoga classes and retreats through Skyclad since 2005. His career as one of Canada’s prominent male contemporary dance artist’s fuels his understanding of movement and the body. More recent studies in 2011 with Joseph Kramer (The Body Electric / Sexological Bodywork) and the work of Peter Levine in 2015 (Somatic Experiencing) have refined his offerings and interests in the area of intimacy and sexual wellness.
Ron guides and supports as expansion rises from contraction, light illuminates shadow and breath brings you into the moment.

Pono is a certified sexological bodyworker and somatic sex educator. He guides people of all gender identities to work through and overcome cultural, religious and familial taboos around intimacy, touch, arousal and sex.
Pono utilizes knowledge from studying Focusing, (Eugene Gendlin), and the chakra system in his hands on work with clients. For several years, he participated in First Nation/Native American rituals and ceremonies, including monthly sweat lodges and several vision quests.
Pono volunteered with the San Francisco AIDS Foundation in its Rubberman safe sex campaign, and co-facilitated their Buddy Connection workshops. He is a certified yoga instructor who did his training with Integrative Yoga Therapy.
Clients have commented on his gentle, grounded presence, and warm soothing demeanor.
