The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork

The World’s Leading Facilitator Training for Somatic Sex Educators

The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork is a professional training for somatic sex educators that also offers a profound learning experience for people interested in their own erotic development.

The training provides direct experiential learning opportunities in how to use a client-centered approach to empower, educate and support people to become more knowledgeable, attuned to and aware of their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns.

The training is taught somatically, and emphasizes session structure, embodied skills, professional practice, ethics and boundaries, and group facilitation. People come out of the training with a clear structure for conducting sessions for individuals, couples, and groups, as well as fundamental skills in somatic sexology and a broad understanding of the knowledge underpinning effective practice.

Participants learn a variety of Sexological Bodywork modalities, including active receiving, anal touch, internal and external genital mapping, breathwork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching. Furthermore, participants experience how humans learn sex—through mindful, self-directed practice over time.

This Sexological Bodywork training makes use of online learning, video conferences, home erotic practice sessions, video demonstrations, supervised practicum, and communal practice.


Uma speaks with Cyrhs about his experience on the training:




“The single most empowering and integrative experience I’ve ever had both for my professional and personal practice.”

Teachers of sexological bodywork:

“It is well structured, well timed. I liked the mixture of learning experiences and the emphasis on anatomy.”

“It’s very well organized and you start at your own level of knowledge and that’s completely valued and supported.”

“I would say that it is the most comprehensive and well thought out program I have attended and would advise them that it is the “one” to do should they wish to develop their skills in this field of work. Material grounded, training solid.”

The Institute of Somatic Sexology welcomes diversity in race, gender, sexuality, physical ability and life experience.
