Yoga, Sex + Death™
Oh Beloved! Take away what I want. Take away what I do. Take away what I need. Take away everything that takes me from you.

Yoga, Sex + Death™
With Susan Marrufo
Samarasa’s signature course guided by co-founder Susan Marrufo. This course is a study on the relationship between yoga, sacred sexuality, and death through a deeper examination of the two main themes that connect them:
Intimacy + Letting Go
Course intentions are to cultivate the following:
Inner asana – by letting go of what we think the asana should look like, we can dive deeply within, find silence and become intimate with the inner landscape of sensation, feelings and thoughts.
Witness consciousness – observing resistances and reactions, habitual patterns and thoughts, finding the courage to see ourselves honestly with acceptance and compassion.
Surrendering – Learn the importance of healthy boundary setting as it relates to sexual and spiritual surrender, gain a different perspective on death and the dying process.
6-week series begins July 18th
These intentions will be grounded in experiential exercises and a hatha yoga practice which provides a safe container for inner journeying and transformation. This course is for those who identify as female.
Interested in exploring intimacy through communing with others in a deep and meaningful way? Take the leap! If not now, when?
Class meets twice per week – every Wednesday 6:30-9:30pm and every Sunday 10:30am-1:30pm.
First class begins Wednesday, July 18th at 6:30pm.
Limited spaces available.
Susan Marrufo, MA, E-RYT 500, left the United States and a job in advertising in 2008 to travel internationally and experience life beyond the confines of her cultural conditioning. She received her first 500-hr yoga certification in Thailand in 2009, where she began her studies of the classical yogic scriptures and delved deeply into esoteric tantric philosophy. After 2 years of teaching month-long tantric based courses on the banks of the Ganges in India and the Pacific coastal towns of Mexico, Susan returned to the US to begin a residential internship with the Kripalu School of Yoga, where she taught in and project managed several Kripalu yoga teacher trainings as well as received her 2nd 500-hr teacher training certification from the Kripalu School of Yoga.
Since then, Susan has split her time between India, Thailand and the US, facilitating group courses in the inquiry of yoga and meditation as well as diving increasingly deeper into her own yogic studies. After many years of travel, she is happy to have found a home in the City of Angels.
Susan wishes to express deepest gratitude to her teacher, Sri Prem Baba, for being the unwavering force that guides.
