What we're about

The Sea School of Embodiment hosts leading edge trainings in somatic sexology including Wheel of Consent events; Body Poem; and the Somatic Sex Education professional training UK & Ireland.

The School is a collaboration between Kian de la Cour and Katie Sarra. Our Meetups are aimed at various levels of experience. We present continuous professional development (CPD) events for professionals who are working in the fields of embodiment and sexuality and run workshops for the public in consent and embodiment. Somatic can be defined as "of the body" and embodiment as "the body experienced from within".

Community: Our Meetups are intended to support the expansion of informed dialogue about conscious relating, especially in the Devon area and to support professionals engaged with somatic sex education internationally.

Sexological Bodyworkers are certified sexologists and somatic sex educators, supporting individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own erotic development and/or work through sexual issues or concerns.

The course involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breath work, touch, Taoist Bodywork, pelvic release bodywork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching.

The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork™ is a training in embodiment. Whilst this involves learning and developing skills in a range of bodywork modalities, the main focus of the training is on learning how to facilitate client agency with their decision-making about how they are touched. As such, sessions are co-created with an educational focus.

Sexological Bodywork™ supports new neural pathways firing in the service of exploring new ways of being and wiring them with practice. Embodiment practices are routes to support coming back 'online' with the receptive parts of the nervous system which supports agency and choice in decision-making with our bodies. Learning how to feel more of ourselves supports more of us to come online with creating safety and kindness with ourselves and others.

For many people, the only context for intimate touch and discussion has been within a relationship or partner engagement. This is understandable - and there are other contexts; one of which is education and curiosity. In Sexological Bodywork sessions, practitioners intend to work outside of attraction or dis-attraction i.e. partner engagement is set to one side in the service of learning.

One of the somatic realms that Sexological Bodyworkers introduce to our students is a state of arousal that is free of fantasy, unfinished emotional business, religious dogma, cultural caveats and habitual sexual behaviours. In this meditative state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom and freedom. One of the ways to access this fecund state is by actively receiving Taoist Bodywork. Helping others access and make use of a variety of erotic states is foundational to the education we offer.

Sexological Bodyworkers believe that sexual health and erotic education are basic human rights. The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork™ professional training is for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, characteristics, or expressions.

Certified Sexological Bodyworkers operate with a client-led & client-centred approach and with a clear Code of Ethics. Sexological Bodywork has an educational focus, meaning that practitioners work with learning objectives that the clients bring. This means it is not a set of techniques, rather, the techniques are secondary to the educational contract.


This 7 month program trains and certifies somatic sex educators. Although touch may be used as one of the educational modalities, Sexological Bodyworkers are certified sexologists who focus on education, rather than massage therapists. This UK training will use the the Australian curriculum, which both includes and expands upon the original California-approved course of studies. Read the Code of Ethics for Sexological Bodyworkers here: https://www.the-asis.org/ethics


This course is recognised in the UK by The Association of Somatic and Integrative Sexologists as offering a training of sufficient depth for practitioners to be eligible for insurance for their work. See the-asis.org for more details.

Upon completion of all requirements, students will be awarded the Certificate in Sexological Bodywork (CSB) or, in the second year, the Certificate of Somatic Sexual Education (CSSE) by the Sea School of Embodiment.

Graduates from this professional training can become members of The Association of Certified Sexological Bodyworkers (ACSB), the Somatic Sex Educators’ Association of Australasia (SSEAA) and apply for membership of the Association of Somatic and Integrative Sexologists (ASIS) and be admitted to the World Association of Sex Coaches (WASC) with no further requirements
