The training provides direct experiential learning opportunities in how to use a client-centered approach to empower, educate and support people to become more knowledgeable, attuned to and aware of their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns.

The training is taught somatically, and emphasizes session structure, embodied skills, professional practice, ethics and boundaries, and group facilitation. People come out of the training with a clear structure for conducting sessions for individuals, couples, and groups, as well as fundamental skills in somatic sexology and a broad understanding of the knowledge underpinning effective practice.

Participants learn a variety of Sexological Bodywork modalities, including active receiving, anal touch, internal and external genital mapping, breathwork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching. Furthermore, participants experience how humans learn sex—through mindful, self-directed practice over time.

This Sexological Bodywork training makes use of online learning, video conferences, home erotic practice sessions, video demonstrations, supervised practicum, and communal practice.
