It’s good for you!
Featuring Iya: a 20 year practitioner of Japanese styles of shiatsu and acupressure.

About the Presenter
-Iya- has been exploring her love of rope, impact, whips and erotic hypnosis privately and publicly at events up and down the East Coast since 2011. She has a passion for skillful communication and collaborative efforts; from event planning for 3000 to co-topping a scene.
She brings two-decades of Buddhist practice into her teaching on the topics of communication, bodywork and self-awareness in a variety of settings and is delighted to bring that experience to the kink community.
