ABOUT THE CLASS

Erotic Movement Arts® is a multi-sensory, pleasure based, sensual embodiment and female centered experience for women.  

Through pole and erotic dance, EMA offers a space for embodied spirituality and creativity and is a gentle yet powerful gathering space for women. 

Our sexual, emotional stories are often trapped in our expressive bodies and with movement being our first language, it can be a direct pathway to our truth.  Our bodies can express so purely what are minds often cannot.

The classes are designed to bring joy to the flesh and ignite women's erotic power through movements adapted from Yoga, Pilates, Modern Dance and energy cultivation practices like Qi Gong and Tantric Dance.   

It’s also an incredible workout, full of strength building moves and compassionate yet deep flexibility techniques.  Rie has been a certified massage therapist and yoga instructor for 18 years so your body will be in excellent hands.

Beginners will learn a simple and safe Pole Choreography with graceful transitions.

Advanced students will work on refining their connection to their energy body as well as their emotional body to drop deeper into their authentic self.

 

"ANOTHER IMPORTANT WAY IN WHICH THE EROTIC CONNECTION FUNCTIONS IS THE OPEN AND FEARLESS UNDERLINING OF MY CAPACITY FOR JOY, IN THE WAY MY BODY STRETCHES TO MUSIC AND OPENS INTO RESPONSE, HARKENING TO ITS DEEPEST RHYTHMS SO EVERY LEVEL UPON WHICH I SENSE ALSO OPENS TO THE EROTICALLY SATISFYING EXPERIENCE WHETHER IT IS DANCING, BUILDING A BOOKCASE, WRITING A POEM, OR EXAMINING AN IDEA." - AUDRE LORDE
