Nyssa Knowledge Series: VIVA LA VULVA

Nyssa Knowledge Series Viva La Vulva

Buckle-up for a no-holds-barred deep dive into the lesser-known realities of what naturally occurs below-the-belt over the course of a woman’s lifetime. This Series will be LIVE online and consists of four unique 60-90 minute sessions, Thursdays in September - October 2021.
Join us for 1 Session or ALL! Registration below.

Few of us have looked at our vulvas with any regularity. Perhaps even fewer have considered what self-knowledge and care of our vulva and vagina could mean towards long-term quality of life and immediate physical and emotional gratification. Nyssa is bringing together a powerful team of experts for 4 Thursdays in September - October (online!) as we collectively raise awareness and seed a ‘new normal’ for dialogue and personal action towards elevating women’s health and wellbeing.

All sessions will be interactive and held via Zoom Webinar. You won't be on camera, but our experts and Nyssa hosts will — ready to share facts, insights, and answer your in-the-moment questions moderated by our Nyssa team.
A VieVision Between Legs Mirror is not required for participation, but encouraged. Use the code MADEYOULOOK to receive $5 off your VieVision Between Legs Mirror Purchase.

$5 Per Session + Processing Fee | Each ticket comes with a FREE guest registration code, so bring a friend and learn together! 

Part 1, Thursday 9/23 4p CT / 5p ET: Your Anatomy 101

with OB-GYN Dr. Lucky Sekhon and April Davis of The Vagina Blog

From science to sensation—what are our primary below-the-belt female body parts and how are they responsible for our “unique gifts” as women (both in terms of creating new life and experiencing pleasure)? What is “normal” change and transformation? What are some watch-outs and/or proactive wellbeing measures that women/people with vulvas can take to maximize their health and pleasure?

Part 2, Thursday 9/30 4p CT / 5p ET: A Deeper Look at Pregnancy, Child Birth & Postpartum

with Doula Veronica Rottman and Pelvic Floor Therapist Kim Vopni

This session covers everything your mama and that birthing class didn’t tell—or show!—you. (Don’t worry, it’s not a horror show, but it’s definitely a bit astounding.) We’ll go deep into what happens anatomically and physiologically in the 9 months leading-up to childbirth and the 9-12 months afterwards. What are some ways to prepare your body for childbirth and how can you help it recover? We’ll talk about natural and aided fertility methods, cesarean and vaginal delivery, and some common pre/postpartum conditions.

Part 3, Thursday 10/7 4p CT / 5p ET: The Pleasure Principle

with Empowerment and Sex Coach Lacey Haynes and Sex and Wellness Educator Haylin Belay

Between your legs is an untapped world of power and pleasure. You’ve probably grown up with a sense of shame and discomfort surrounding your ‘down there’, so getting well-acquainted with your vulva and clitoris can be a profound vehicle for personal and social change, understanding your turn on and helping you have a healthy sex life—solo or partnered. Without further ado, let's grab our VieVision mirrors and talk about why it's so important to look at our vulvas as we connect to the power and grace of the space between our legs.

Part 4, Thursday 10/14 4p CT / 5p ET: Core to Floor

with Pelvic Floor Therapist Dr. Laura Meihofer and Movement Therapist & Owner of Blue Light Yoga Georgia Reath

Two of women’s most essential muscle groups are their core and pelvic floor—strengthening them is about so much more than a flat stomach and good posture. Together they play a critical role in basic bodily functions, anatomical integrity, and even sexual pleasure. In this session, we’ll learn about their cooperative jobs and how they can weaken with age, life events (like childbirth), or even by being over-worked. Then, for part of the session, we’ll engage in a yoga-inspired movement practice that integrates core and pelvic floor conditioning into a full body workout (no Kegels—we promise!). Wear comfortable clothing and plan to participate from your yoga mat.

TICKETS:

$5 non-refundable registration fee for a single session or $20 to register for the entire Series (4 Sessions). Tickets are processed through EventBrite. Receipt of registration/payments will be sent through EventBrite. All other event details will come from Nyssa.
