Each day at The Artemis School is a mix of movement practices, sexy science lessons, personal inquiry and interactive group work. 

In addition to all of the amazing body education you’ll learn at The Artemis School, each module supports you in developing practical assessment and mentorship skills to help your clients.

The Artemis School currently offers three live in person modules per year:  Initiate, Thrive and Nurture.  Each module focuses on a distinct aspect of women’s sexuality. All three modules are required for The Artemis School certification program.  Students can attend a single module if there is space once the certification program is full.  

 

Last chance to attend a live Artemis School module,
we are going on sabbatical in 2018!

NURTURE

Tuesday, October 17 - Monday, October 23, 2017
Ojai, CA

Pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period are integral parts of women’s sexuality.  Understanding the physical and hormonal landscape of these rites of passage illuminates the intelligence of our arousal system and reproductive health.  

Over the past five years Artemis School founder, Lara Catone, has developed the Elemental Body™ method (formerly Restore Your Core) to support women in healing the profound changes that happen in their bodies as a result of having babies. It turns out that all women can be susceptible to leaky bladders, pelvic pain, organ prolapse and weak abdominals that disconnect you from your power center.  Welcome to the world beyond the kegel!  Nurture sets the stage for a lifelong, thriving sex life through the lens of working with the postpartum woman.

You will learn:

  • Assessment skills and methods for addressing common abdominal and pelvic floor challenges.  
  • To teach the foundational exercises of the Elemental Body™ method.
  • The influences of gut health and scar tissue on healing.
  • Essential self care for new moms.
  • How to maintain a juicy sex life through hormonal shifts and life changes.

The Nurture module includes a Certificate of Completion in Level 1 of Elemental Body.™

Nurture trains you in the Elemental Body™ method to support postpartum women and others in physical, emotional and sexual well being for a lifetime.

KIMBERLY ANN JOHNSON
Savoring the Sacred Window of Postpartum

Kimberly Ann Johnson is an international yoga teacher trainer, Structural Integration practitioner, post-partum care revolutionary, and single mom to a 7 year old Brazilian daughter. After years of yoga practice, a healthy and an idyllic island pregnancy, she was shocked when her post-partum experience and recovery completely transformed her relationship to her yoga practice and womanhood in general. Completely torn and rearranged and told she needed “a total pelvic floor reconstruction”, she became determined to find the wisdom that would eventually allow her to heal herself. She traveled to Thailand, Malaysia, and her longtime residence Brazil, in search of holistic healing tools for new moms. Along the way, she was immersed herself in the old ways and used herself as a laboratory. Her biggest revelations came through the work of Sexological Bodywork and Somatic Experiencing. 

She is the creator of Magamama--a virtual community and interactive guide for postpartum moms who want to heal their bodies, reawaken their libido, strengthen their relationships and mine the full experience of motherhood.

2017 GUEST TEACHER - LAURA LARRIVA PAGE

One Day Intensive - Re-wild the Psyche

Laura Larriva Page brings the innovative work of depth psychologist and social artist, Bill Plotkin, to life in this day-long dive into the inner wilds of the psyche.  Here live vast resources that can be evoked for a felt sense of wholeness to meet all of life's complexity.  Here too live our survival strategies that are in the business of keeping the ego safe from depth, impact and change.  We will come to know our inner archetypes intimately through music, movement, the imagination, discussion and nature-based practices.  This work will provide participants with solid resources for self-healing and wholing.

An internationally recognized social artist and an advocate of the Earth, Laura Larriva Page blends her deep love of archetypal and developmental psychology, dance, mythology, ecology and the study of may nature-based transitions into powerful, embodied explorations of Soul.  All designed to coax the whole human experience back from cultural exile, and to catalyze deep, systemic shift in the lives of transformative leaders. 

2018 Dates:  The three modules (Initiate, Thrive and Nurture) and the certification program will not be offered in 2018, we are going on sabbatical. To be in the current for future trainings and other sexy learning opportunities, please sign up here.
