Christmas is about coming together, re-uniting with relatives, connecting to your familial lineage, bonding together over a meal, being generous with each other and celebrating the year that was.
But Christmas is also whatever you make it!
Sex can take up a huge chunk of our energy -The thought of sex, the fantasy, the desire, the lead up, the build up, the chase, the choosing (the swiping), the courting, the outfit, the lipstick, the gym work outs, the act of sex, the orgasm, the ejaculation, the 'after-care', the follow up, the safety, the vulnerability - the whole process can consume a lot of our time, energy and emotion. ...if we let it.

Taking a break together is always a good thing to do, helping you relax and rejuvenate and hopefully have some quality sexy time away from the stresses of everyday life. So why would you add a couples retreat to your time away? What are the benefits to you of going to one of my LoveLife Couples Retreats? Well, where do I start?! Feeling the love and connection in the group and seeing the couples blossom is an experience that’s hard to put into words. But I’ll try...

I know when i was growing up I thought sexiness belonged to ‘the cool girls’, the girls with good looks and special ‘sexual skills’. I felt awkward and totally disconnected from my body and sexual pleasure. Thankfully that’s all changed. I have been on a profound journey to make friends with my body, I have gotten super intimate with my intimate terrain. And I have embraced what I call ‘the new sexy’ as a full time job.
How often do you sit down with your partner and discuss the dynamic of your relationship? As individuals we grow, shift and change over time, which means our relationship does too, and abandoning it too long could cause the relationship to stagnate, deteriorate and eventually atrophy (like a muscle that’s not being used). Just like you would sit down with your boss and discuss your role, duties, income and how stimulated and satisfied you’re feeling in your job, similarly we should do the same in our most intimate relationship.
Today I want to share something with you… Something that holds incredible power for transformation for couples. Something that is capable of unleashing deep, ecstatic, female orgasms. Something that helps couples in connecting deeper and deeper with each other. I’m talking about Yoni Massage.
Last night we held a magical Couples Nude Yoga workshop in Perth, and it was themed on SLOWING IT DOWN. (Check out my Instagram to check out the beautiful set-up!) In every possible way. We had 9 brave couples join us on a journey into connective movement, meditation, synced breath, partner yoga, ancient tantric practices and authentic sharing (my favourite bit). We asked each person:
When was the last time you spent 3 whole hours with your partner in close connection without distraction…naked? (and sleeping doesn't count).Probably not in a LONG time, or ever…
I have never been one to sleep naked. Yep, admittedly even as a Nude Yoga teacher I have never understood how or why people would choose to sleep naked! You must get so cold!! As a little girl I used to get sick a lot - mostly with asthma and chest infections - so my Mum would always cover me up head to toe in pyjamas, socks, jumpers and blankets. Even leaving the house I rarely leave without a jacket, scarf and maybe even a beanie!
Your libido is greatly affected by where you live, just ask anyone in a relationship who lives at home with their parents! #instantmoodkiller And recently I have had a lot of my clients unhappy with their home life, and hence unhappy with their sex life. The thing is, to be vulnerable, surrender and let go sexually we must feel safe - both emotionally and physically.
