Yoga to Activate Your Sexual Energy

This will be an all-levels Vinyasa flow class designed to help active your sexual energy. We all lead busy lives and it can be difficult to tap into our sexy side once we finally have time to be with our partner/s! Conference weekends are no different! We will move through a series of postures designed to heat up the body, allowing it to gently release tension and stress. We will close with a guided meditation focused on arousing your sexual energy during Savasana. Please bring your yoga mat with you, yoga blocks will be provided.

New this year! Share The Love Raffle

For those of you who have attended BTL in the past, you are familiar with Love Bucks which we have used in the past for a live auction on Saturday night to “win” time with our presenters.

We feel this part of the event has lost steam and want to both freshen the approach and also meet another need. Love Bucks are no more! However, have no fear – you’ll still be able to win one on one time with our presenters – and practice the art of paying it forward at the same time.

This year we’re replacing Love Bucks with a “Share The Love” raffle. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase throughout the weekend and up until the Saturday night ceremony. Through the weekend, you’ll be able to place tickets into buckets designated for each presenter (or presenting group) in order to win a chance to spend 15-30 minutes with them Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Didn’t get to attend a class you wanted or have remaining questions from the one you did? Stick a ticket in that presenter’s bucket! Want to know more about their life experiences with poly? Get a ticket! Didn’t get a chance to get that book signed by your favorite author? Now’s your chance!

During the Saturday night ceremony, where we used to do the live Love Bucks auction, we’ll draw the winners for each presenter (or presenting group). As each name is drawn, we’ll combine the remaining tickets and draw for a free ticket to next year’s event. All proceeds from the auction will go to a scholarship/needs based fund for next year and beyond. This is your chance to provide an opportunity for others in the future who otherwise may not be able to attend Beyond The Love.

As always, how you would like to spend your time with the presenters must be negotiated with them and consent still counts!
