Yoga + Burlesque

1620 Polk Street, San Francisco

Yoga+Burlesque is a yoga class designed to support the embodiment of burlesque. Both practices have the capacity to empower and transform. Discover how yogic practices and principles can support the physical, energetic and mental needs of your burlesque work. Connect to your breath and by extension to your energetic body. Expand and refine your awareness with performer, teacher and choreographer Miss Kitty Oaks, whose aim as a teacher is to share practices that illuminate, elevate and titillate the world.

Leave class feeling more connected to yourself and to the world around you! Take home a glossary of terms and tools to support you on your burlesque path. Bring traditional yoga props such as mats, blocks, and straps if you have them.

Are you a Breast Cancer Survivor? Learn how you can take classes for free! Want to donate to survivors taking classes? See our PINK LIGHT page.

Our Mission:Pink Light Bay Area provides burlesque classes based on the table of contents in the Burlesque Handbook, written by Jo Weldon. These classes will remain free to all survivors and those currently receiving treatment for breast cancer. Pink Light Bay Area will have a focus on finding fun. These classes are pointed at women looking for a one-two punch of fierce femininity and silly celebration to help reclaim their bodies. As Pink Light as a whole works towards non-profit status we will be seeking supporters and partners such as Center for Sex and Culture which will provide space for this classes and other materials needed. All students are potential teachers as we aim to spread this experience as far and wide as possible. These classes are also available to any friends or caregivers of a survivors as long as they are attending with those personally impacted by breast cancer. Get back and give back to yourself!
