This experiential intensive is a place to learn and practice how to:

How does the online version of Master Your Pleasure work?
Recent times have shown us, and perhaps also you, how powerfully this work can be transmitted and transferred to the online space. This will, of course, be a different experience to the in-person week long event and I look forward to offering in-person spaces for this journey again in the future. The journey will include online & offline experiences, sessions, paired practices, small group circles and breaks for rest, reflection & integration. The experience will span the entire day with appropriate breaks.
Online Embodiment Journeys - The Magic & Shadow of the Zoom Room
We are excited and curious to share the experience of Master Your Pleasure Online Edition with you. Over these past few months we have had the privilege to offer deep, embodied, shamanic, intimate, ritual group spaces in the Cyberland. It is incredible how much depth, safety, connection, transformation and magic can arise. Some participants have shared that their experience has shown that online they have had a greater capacity to feel safe and go deep. There are also some potential challenges primarily screen fatigue. We are extremely aware of this factor. Therefore, we will be offering a varied and dynamic journey where time on and off screen will be weaved, with solo practices, active bodywork sessions, breathwork sessions, paired practices, dance, short lectures, small groups, sharings, audio only, large circles. We will alchemise mental, emotional, physical and energetic experiences to support you to be fully engaged with all parts of your being.
Open, connect, master, and free pleasure in your body working with an 8-level pleasure model all the way from womb to sexual and spiritual bliss. We will take this journey into the pleasure bodies using a different number of techniques, exercises, rituals and meditations based on some modern day specialities like sexological bodywork, conscious communication and consent and we will dive into a number of ancient wise temple arts including Tantra, Meditation and Shamanism.

Why should I attend and what will I gain?
At the end of this experiential intensive, your relationship to your pleasure and your capacity to experience pleasure will be formed, reformed or reconnected.
The week will take you to meet your current pleasure limit or pleasure ceiling, Supporting you to expand your capacity to hold and experience pleasure in all its forms for prolonged time and you will know how to effectively reconnect to pleasure when you move away from it, when something external in life takes you out of it, when you forget, shut down or feel fear.
You will then take this new reality back into your everyday life, with a deep reference point in your being and body as to what pleasure is for you.
You will understand and appreciate how crucial this is to your well-being and therefore you will give it attention and priority.
You will be confident in understanding and speaking out your boundaries and therefore you will be more willing to allow it.
Our ability to experience, feel and receive pleasure is an essential nurturing aspect of living life as a human being.
Pleasure can be gained from our intimate and casual relationships with others, our work, food, sports, hobbies, passions in life, dancing, music, singing, touch, sexuality and relaxation.
Pleasure keeps us engaged in life, it keeps us young and healthy and it changes the state of our mental and physical well-being.
Pleasure floods our systems with happy and healing hormones and other substances.
Pleasure is medicine for the body, mind and soul.
Why do I need to learn how to feel pleasure. Shouldn’t that come naturally to me?
We are born with a wonderful natural sense of innocence and pleasure. For many of us sadly the experiences we have in life move us away from pleasure.
We may judge it as wrong, we are afraid of it, others judge or disapprove when we express pleasure, my church, family or culture tells me its wrong, we are punished for feeling pleasure, and we sometimes are dramatically disconnected from or forget/block out how to feel pleasure.
We therefore need to learn or relearn how to allow, invite and welcome pleasure back into our life
Is this experiential intensive for singles or couples?
This experiential intensive is suitable for singles, couples including those of all genders and all sexual orientations. Couples if you wish to attend you can work with your partner only or choose to work with others. This is great container for couples to regain the relationship with pleasure as individuals and as part of your relationship. You can choose not to interact with others at all
What do I need to know?
You do not need any previous experience of similar or related work to attend this retreat. All the information, skills and knowledge you require will be taught during this week. If you have attended other trainings based on meditation, sacred/conscious sexuality, tantra or shamanism this retreat will compliment and work well to build on those skills.

Elaine Yonge is a Sexuality, Tantra, Shamanic Breathwork & Bodywork Facilitator and Guide. She facilitates events for ISTA and her own offerings in London and overseas. Elaine has a busy private client practice in London.
Elaine utilises skills from more traditional Tantra, Shamanism, Transformational Somatic Sexological Bodywork and Breathwork. She loves to work with the integration of sexuality & spirituality , the body, the mind and the soul energies. Elaine’s work with clients often begins with reonnecting them to their body and their sexual energy. She longs to support clients to live life as emotionally and sexually expressive beings.
Her work includes sexuality issues, lack of libido, orgasm & self pleasuring, understanding and changing unhealthly sexual /relationship patterning, genital somatic clearing of pain or disconnection, freeing oneself from shame and guilt around sexuality, consent and boundaires, working with the emotional body including childhood wounding, cultural and religious conditioning, grief healing and transformation through shamanic breathwork journeying.
Some of these specifiers point to my work in the world – somatic sexual educator, esoteric embodiment guide – Tantrik & Sexual Shamanic modalities, Taoist internal arts practitioner, creator & producer of temple arts events in Europe & Asia, & ongoing student of embodied enquiry (internal sexual alchemy & self-cultivation). I grew up in Bombay, India in the 80s surrounded by a syncretic, collective consciousness in which the mystical is interwoven with the logical. I’ve lived in different countries & cultures – Sweden, Belgium, Argentina, India & the UK, and learned to speak 7 languages.
I’m fascinated by similarities underlying foundational practice of different wisdom traditions originating in the Himalayan Mountain range – Tantric Buddhism, Shaiva Tantra especially Kashmiri Shaivism, Kaula Tantra, Bön Shamanism, &, Trans-Himalayan Shamanism, and also Taoist Internal Arts practiced on the opposite side of the mountains in China. I also studied, practiced and facilitated different modalities of movement, bodywork, sexual shamanism, somatic sexology, and trauma release. The decade long process of learning, practicing, teaching and supporting practice community around Argentine Tango shaped the process of my embodied enquiry into paradoxes.
...Grateful, honored, centered, humble, full of life force, excited to be alive in a woman body, in deep devotion of my yoni, in deep love with my inner man, touched by so many amazing human souls that live on this planet fiercely and kindly, awaken and clear...Reemerging after 4 days of "inner reset" in a hotel room that I book for myself to dive fully into "Master your pleasure" the amazing work of Elaine Yonge I love the work of this woman so deeply. One of the most incredible experiences of these 4 days has been to feel deeply HEART PENETRATED by the eyes of a kind woman over the screen. I cried and I received. I m loved it. I'm safe. I'm free. MASSIVE THANK YOU.
I just spent 4 days with Elaine Yonge & Bynoi Desouza and a bunch of other lovely humans for Master Your Pleasure Online.
Such a treat for a mumma who had her baby in a pandemic. I feel reconnected, more alive, and importantly ready to centre myself and pleasure in all areas of my life - not just sexuality. I still have some numbness in my body after carrying a babe and a last-minute cesarean. The truth is my body looks different. Feels different. Responds differently. And it's ok.
"I feel like I now know that pleasure means. My awareness and feelings around pleasure have expanded beyond sexuality and now permeates all areas of my life. I now have tools that empower me to see life in all its light and shadows with clarity. Thank you for continually changing my life!"
"Elaine is an incredible teacher and mentor of this work. Master Your Pleasure has exceeded my expectations in terms of organization, venue, attendees, experience and learning. All have been superb. I have gained a complete paradigm shift on what pleasure actually is, how I can choose it in any moment and that by choosing pleasure I’m not denying pain. I’ve expanded mentally, emotionally, spiritually and energetically. This is an intense week of facing the beliefs on pleasure + creating + anchoring new pleasure reference points in the physical body. I can’t wait to see what comes after from this week. The group was perfect, so glad I came with my partner and we were supported with our relationship within the space very well. Thank you. So very grateful."
"I will be taking home a lot of new and wonderful experiences on my own and in sharing with other participants. I did not expect that it would be so intense and I’m really grateful and blessed. I felt very safe, supported. Thank you, a lot, for this amazing week, amazing time and space that let me take home a big box of treasure. Thanks, Elaine, Binoy and your team"
"I came into this week feeling a strong call to be here but not logically understanding as to why I was here. What does resistance to pleasure even mean? And through all of the intensive and beautifully orchestrated information, transmissions and rituals I realised why I was here. Went through and overcame some of my biggest resistances in life and how to rewire my thoughts, emotions and energy for more pleasure! HIGHLY recommended if you’re ready to face your truths and untruths. Thank you, Elaine, and Binoy, you are amazing."
