From June 8 to 12, Canyon Ranch and the author, model, and fashion designer will team up to present Sensuality & the Art of the Teese with Dita Von Teese – a well-rounded program encompassing everything from beauty workshops to physician-led discussions on the health benefits of sexuality. The emphasis is on self-confidence, personal style, and female empowerment with fun, creative activities including:

  • BURLESQUE/STRIPTEASE WORKSHOP: Dita will teach a striptease routine focused on basic moves including the classic “Burlesque Strut” and techniques for skillfully removing garters, stockings and gloves. Create your own striptease and learn tips for recreating the magic at home.

Canyon Ranch is a safe and nurturing environment for guests to let go of their inhibitions and embrace an important, and often neglected, part of one’s health: sexuality. Dr. Nicola Finley, who specializes in women’s health at Canyon Ranch will be offering discussions on sexual health as part of the program.

“At Canyon Ranch we take a fully integrated approach to health and wellness. Respecting and nurturing one’s sexuality is an important element of living a full and happy life.

Dr. Finley’s lectures include:

  • NOT TONIGHT HONEY I HAVE A HEADACHE: Dr. Nicola Finley’s lecture exploring the physical and emotional factors that impact women’s sexual desire and arousal during all stages of life. Integrative ways to optimize female sexual function, both before and after menopause, are discussed.
