Find freedom and comfort in your skin.
All ages welcome.

We are beyond excited to host Blissful Embodiment, a workshop developed by Naked in Motion’s awesome instructor, Sophia, for our second-ever (bottoms-optional) Women’s Workshop. 

This class is specifically open to all trans & cis women, and anyone who was assigned female at birth.

Please make note of this distinction. For anyone who doesn't identify in this way, please come to our all-gender class, the details of which you can find at nakedinmotion.com/events.

We receive so many messages from society about how we should look, feel, exercise, and eat. We are not encouraged to learn how to listen to our bodies and trust that it knows what it needs. Even in profoundly healing spaces, these voices and messages can creep in. There is hope!

Join Sophia, body image healer and yoga teacher, in a healing circle to practice body love and compassion. Through healing discussion, intentional movement, mantra, and transformational meditation, we will will uncover our innate ability to love and trust our bodies. You will leave this workshop with tools to listen to your body’s natural cues and feel more comfortable in your skin.

Upon arrival, students will change into a robe, slip, or cover-up (with or without underwear/bottoms). During the journaling and sharing section, you will have the option to take off your robe whenever you feel ready. The asana movement section will be Naked! with the option to wear bottoms.

Curious about this rule? Visit nakedinmotion.com/mission to read all about our mission. Menstruation doesn’t necessitate wearing bottoms: feel free to use any menstrual management tools. Also, please make use of anything that affirms and supports your gender (e.g. binders, chest pieces, packers). Everyone should be an active, willing participant and at least 18 years old.

Sophia made me feel completely seen, held, and respected in the Blissful Embodiment workshop I took with her, and I left feeling an increased capacity for compassion with myself, my body, and my relationship with my body. She embodies nonjudgment, empathy, and care in her teaching style, while guiding you through an accessible physical and emotional journey.
