IN THIS COURSE
We will explore and learn about Herbal Pelvic Steam Baths as a means to…
RECLAIM OUR BODIES AS POWERFUL + SACRED SANCTUARIES
Our bodies are our sanctuaries and hold the power and spark of who we are - it’s time to return home to them. Steaming allows us to return to this fundamental place of creative aliveness and stability in our bodies as our own. Jeevan will teach you about this gentle and profound practice as a way to unwind holding patterns and held trauma in our pelvic bowls.

BENEFITS OF STEAMING
I have personally witnessed some amazing results from herbal pelvic steams. The potential benefits of steaming include:
WARMING THE WOMB + EASING PAIN
This is one of the most effective practices I’ve seen for easing menstrual and pelvic pain.
MOVING STAGNATION + REDUCING BLOCKS
From an East Asian medicine perspective, fibroids, cysts and polyps are signs of stagnation in the pelvic bowl. Steaming brings circulation to the pelvic bowl
CLEARING RESIDUAL ENERGY, INCLUDING HELD EMOTIONS
Our pelvic bowls are a prime area where we can hold emotions and store trauma. One of the most direct ways we’ll be working with steaming is learning how to clear out energy in your bowl.
BRINGING BALANCE BACK TO THE BOWL
So many of us experience chronic vaginal infections. Steaming can be an amazing adjunct to help to bring balance back to the bowl.
Just like we prepare a guest room when we have people visit, with fresh linens and tidying up, steaming is an excellent way to prepare for a new baby.
OWNING OUR SEXUALITY + CREATIVITY
We live in bodies that have historically been marginalized. This is especially true if you are a person of color or trans. Steaming is a gentle and direct approach to returning to the power center root of our bodies and reclaiming our sexuality, creativity and belonging.
WHAT MAKES THIS CLASS DIFFERENT
This is the only steaming class that we’re aware of that uses inclusive language to welcome in all bodies. If you identify as a woman, womxn, femme, trans, non-binary, genderqueer, gender-fluid or gender non-conforming, this class is for you! Jeevan hopes to that this healing practice can feel inviting to all bodies and identities.
AN ALCHEMICAL BLEND OF SCIENCE + MAGIC
While you will absolutely learn practical steps towards incorporating steaming into your life, you will also learn about magical practices around steaming. This includes which gemstones are safe to use in your steams, the energetic properties of plant allies, unwinding ancestral patterning and more!
TENDING TO THE SEXUAL WOUND
While this could be an entire class unto itself, we will definitely hold the emotional and energetic aspects of steaming at front and center. We will do this through visualization and mindfulness, along with breath and movement practices.
Discover the tradition of steaming and why traditional healing practices are so needed in these modern times.
Learn why NOW is the time for us to reclaim our bodies and why our pelvic bowls are such a key place to begin.
