Ron Stewart has been offering men’s yoga classes and retreats through Skyclad since receiving his YTT certification in 2005 (Kate Potter).
As a Certified Sexological Bodyworker (Joseph Kramer – The Body Electric) and somatic sex educator, his studies in Somatic Experiencing (Peter Levine) have helped to refine his practice in the areas of intimacy and sexual wellness. He works with people of all genders and sexual orientations, assisting them to reclaim and expand their relationship to self through body based, experiential practices.
Ron currently holds the position of Vice President of the Somatic Sex Educators Association (SSEA) and is co-founder of Back to the Body sensual retreats for women.
His career as one of Canada’s prominent male contemporary dance artist’s fuels his understanding of movement and the body.
Ron guides and supports as expansion rises from contraction, light illuminates shadow and breath brings you into the moment.

Pono is a somatic sex educator and sexual wellness coach. He guides people of all gender identities, preferences and proclivities, to work through and overcome cultural, religious and familial taboos around intimacy, touch, desire, 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 award-winning 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.
