    The Other Half of Yoga


    Yin yoga is sometimes thought of as “the other half” of yoga. To truly complete your yoga practice and experience the wholeness of the benefits of yoga, consider adding this style to what you are already doing. Or, if you have been nervous or intimidated by yoga in the past, feel like you are not “fit” enough to do yoga or have some injuries that may make a more traditional yoga class difficult for you, Yin yoga is a great place to start.


    Unlike the more traditional, active styles of yoga (sometimes referred to as Yang styles), which physically focus on stretching and strengthening the muscles through movement and flow, Yin yoga shifts its focus to stretching the connective tissue of the body – the ligaments, tendons, joints and fascia. In order to do this, there is less movement and more stretching and holding poses for longer periods of time – usually 3-6 minutes. Don’t worry – you are not going to be trying to stay in Downward Dog, Plank, or Tree poses for this long! In Yin yoga, the goal is to use minimal muscular effort – so instead of using your arms to hold you in place, we use bolsters and blankets to support you, so you can relax into the stretch. Think spinal twists and seated forward bends. Many people love the meditative benefits of a Yin practice as well.



    The longer pose holds and less movement allow your mind to focus on your meditation. This is sometimes the more challenging part of the practice for some people, and others, the more freeing side of their yoga practice.

    I invite you to join us and see if Yin is your “yoga crush” as well! All body sizes, shapes and capabilities are welcome, accepted and loved. In Yin yoga, modifications are a rule, not an exception. You will learn to work with and love your body if you are not there already. I look forward to sharing my practice with you!

    Every scene depends on the bottom/slave/sub/hittee's senses on how they experience it. No matter how hard, how gentle, how soft, how subtle the play, it is all filtered through the senses into the brain. So what happens when you control the senses with which they experience everything? In this class, we talk (and demonstrate) interesting places you can take a scene when you remove someone's perceptions in a controlled manner. The power of silence, the way touch alters, and how the same actions can be radically different depending on what you allow someone to sense.

    Trigger Warnings: claustrophobia, isolation, knives, masks, torture.

    Bio: 

    A nerd of many perversions, master of nothin', Eric (EDP) has been active in the Lexington community for well over a decade now (which means he's moved a lot of chairs around, mostly). One of the owner/operators of Vanderkins Leather & Jewelry who's always looking for adventure and little moments. A constant student trying to share a little bit of his weirdness with others. And who also feels extremely weird trying to sum himself up in a paragraph.

    Ellie (PJD) has been active in the Lexington community for more than a decade as well, and has known the joy of sadism for fun since she stepped on someone's balls for the first time. She is the other owner/operator of Vanderkins Leather & Jewelry. She is always looking for creative and fun ways to hurt people she cares about, and attends as many learning opportunities as she can.

      enhance your power exchange



      Part 1 of a special two part event. This event is followed by a formal tea service that same night! 

      Do you and your Dominant dig the energy built during table service? Are you interested in learning about how table service can enhance D/s? With all of the information out there, it’s hard to know where to start, and with every situation being so different from the next, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

      Join SpankyRae, mocha, and wenday, the crew behind the Afternoon Tea at The Space, for an in-depth learning lab about what it takes to serve an excellent cup of tea with class and style. Not only will you gain great practical information regarding teas and fancy table settings, but you’ll also learn how to serve it graciously and mindfully. After an afternoon full of learning and practicing, we’re inviting D-types to come sit at our beautifully set table for delicious tea and mindful service.

      Classes:

      All About the Leaves: Selecting, Pairing, and Brewing Tea.

      Do you like herbal teas? Do you know how to pronounce rooibos? Join mocha for a discussion on tea types, selection, pairing, and brewing. In this class you will sample different types of tea and discuss ways to pair teas with your menu. You will also learn about brewing temperatures and must-have accessories for brewing a great cup/pot of tea.

      Service of a Different Pattern

      Tea service, whether it is called formal, high, low, or afternoon, is different from other meal services. Although some basic service standards will carry through, tea service has its own unique pattern.

      • What do you do if you don’t have enough of one pattern of china to serve all of the guests?
      • How should a place setting be arranged?
      • Who pours the tea and how? Cream? Sugar? Sweetener? Oh MY!
      • What about all those yummies that need to be served?
      • Who gets served first? Who announces the courses?

      There is so much to table service, but don’t worry, wenday will set the pattern straight and guide you to an impeccable tea service.

      Stepping Up Your Service: Protocols and Behaviors in Formal Table Service

      Once you’ve gotten the tea brewed and the table set, how will you serve? Is a smile all that matters to your D-type, or do they want something “more”?

      • Will you have high or low protocol teas? What’s the difference?
      • What kinds of protocols can you and your D-type establish for mindful service?
      • How does serving groups and with a group of servers change established protocols?

      SpankyRae will discuss the elements you will need consider for your service at table and review protocols and behaviors you can incorporate into your D/s dynamic.

      Schedule:

      • 11am Doors open
      • 11:30am Welcome, intro
      • 11:45 - 1pm mocha
      • 1pm-1:15 Break
      • 1:15-2:30 wenday
      • 2:30-2:45 Break
      • 2:45-4 Jamie
      • 4 - 5 Tea Prep

      A Sadistically Sensual Massage Intensive


      Or, is it a sensually sadistic massage?  Whichever way you want to spin it, come join mocha as she leads you on a journey of connection and pain. In the first part of this 3 hour intensive, we will discuss safety issues, proper lubrication, and some general techniques. The second part of the class will consist of a demonstration. Last, but not least, there will be ample time to practice your new techniques and get personalized attention and instruction from mocha.  Do you switch?  Have no fear. There will be time for partners to switch and mocha will also show you some ways to switch in-scene. This class is going to be very interactive and sexy with some moans and bruises thrown in for extra fun.


      Supplies: please dress comfortably and be prepared to take off or put on clothes as needed. Prepare to stay hydrated. Please bring a set of sheets, twins are perfect, a towel, and a blanket or throw. If the bottom has trouble laying flat and/or has back problems, please bring a pillow or bolster. As for lubrication, oils are best. My personal preferences are coconut and jojoba. Olive oil also works, but make sure it is not rancid. Not sure what oil you want to use?  No problem. There will be plenty of oil on hand for your use.  If you bring a massage table please note the weight limit for the table.  That information can be found in the paperwork for the table or on the manufacturer’s website.



      mocha states her name describes her color, her flavor, and her attitude. She has a passion for massage, cigar service, and tea service. She also enjoys basic bootblacking and learning new skills.  mocha is a proud Leather girl and member of Castle Treue.

      The Other Half of Yoga


      Yin yoga is sometimes thought of as “the other half” of yoga. To truly complete your yoga practice and experience the wholeness of the benefits of yoga, consider adding this style to what you are already doing. Or, if you have been nervous or intimidated by yoga in the past, feel like you are not “fit” enough to do yoga or have some injuries that may make a more traditional yoga class difficult for you, Yin yoga is a great place to start.


      Unlike the more traditional, active styles of yoga (sometimes referred to as Yang styles), which physically focus on stretching and strengthening the muscles through movement and flow, Yin yoga shifts its focus to stretching the connective tissue of the body – the ligaments, tendons, joints and fascia. In order to do this, there is less movement and more stretching and holding poses for longer periods of time – usually 3-6 minutes. Don’t worry – you are not going to be trying to stay in Downward Dog, Plank, or Tree poses for this long! In Yin yoga, the goal is to use minimal muscular effort – so instead of using your arms to hold you in place, we use bolsters and blankets to support you, so you can relax into the stretch. Think spinal twists and seated forward bends. Many people love the meditative benefits of a Yin practice as well.



      The longer pose holds and less movement allow your mind to focus on your meditation. This is sometimes the more challenging part of the practice for some people, and others, the more freeing side of their yoga practice.

      I invite you to join us and see if Yin is your “yoga crush” as well! All body sizes, shapes and capabilities are welcome, accepted and loved. In Yin yoga, modifications are a rule, not an exception. You will learn to work with and love your body if you are not there already. I look forward to sharing my practice with you!
