Join us, dear friends, for the Bodywork and Dessert Party, and come share an indulgent night of sensual touch, decadent desserts and hip shakin’ live & produced music!

Open new doors of mind/body connectivity through engaging mini-workshops, and spend the evening sharing these new and familiar delights with an amazing group of friends and lovers...whether bringing a sweetie or arriving solo, you'll find plenty of opportunity to nourish and be nourished...

With three distinct spaces, you will have the opportunity to engage in a range of activities and moods at any given moment. Enjoy acro flight, sensual touch & massage in our Embodiment Room; share a chocolate strawberry and conversation over a cup of rose petals & damiana in the Tea & Dessert Lounge, or shake your tail feathers to downtempo electronica and soul singers in the Groove Space – there is plenty of room to play and create as you desire.

Bottomless cups of signature aged puers and aphrodisiac teas included in your ticket price – yum!

Dress in unrestrictive clothing of gold, red & violet & be ready to fly, dance, massage and cuddle all night! Complimentary coat-check provided for all your gear and goodies.

~Schedule of Mini Workshops~
(all are optional)

6pm Doors Open

6:30 – Velocity Romance w/ Mikka Minx (Embodiment Room)
A speed dating game like no other! Great for singles, couples, or anyone looking to add an extra one or two to your party ;) This will be extremely fun, especially for those arriving solo!

7 -8pm – Shibari Acroyoga Workshop w/ Zach & Alex of The Shibari Acro Project (Embodiment Room)
Shibari is a form of Japanese rope bondage meaning 'the beauty of tight binding'. After learning some simple, beautiful ties, we will take our partners into the air, supporting them in basic flying poses. A special opportunity to playfully explore the ways surrender & trust can lead to deeper connection. If you have Shibari ropes around 7m-8m long, please bring them! ***

7:30pm- 9pm – Nona Fender and the Benders (Groove Space)
Wake up your body for a night of dance with Good Times Yoga! They’ll get us moving & grooving while teaching therapeutic flight, acroyoga and massage techniques - BEnder style!
Good Times Yoga is: "A radically inclusive electro boogie movement experience that playfully weaves the sacred and profane for a freakquency raising celebration of life in a body" – Sounds good to us!
