Horndogs, Don't Bother Rushing To That Kama Sutra-Based Yoga Class
Then we called instructor Hemalayaa, in town from California to teach the class, and...yeah, no. The class doesn't have partners. "They are provocative, sensual, seductive movements," she said, "not with a partner but with yourself."
Okay, so which Kama Sutra positions does she use? After some mystifying talk about "modalities" like "sound vibrations" and "visualization," Hemalayaa eventually said that what she taught was more "inspired by" than "directly culled from" the Kama Sutra.
Despite the circling hips and flirty face, it's not just about seducing a partner. "It's about luring in what you truly desire in life...Is it a relationship or is it a strong career or being a better parent?"
So it's not about sex at all then? "No," said Hemalayaa. "It's related to sensuality, and that's different than sex. I don't want to scare people."
