When I received an email from Yoga teacher Samar Ocean Wolf Ciprian describing a healing and self-care technique she was using as ‘Yoga for the Organs’, I was intrigued.
This Mayan method talks about realigning the uterus, steaming the vagina and soaking the penis! For one, I had no idea the uterus could get out of alignment, and I’d never heard anyone doing anything like that with genitals.
I had to talk to her. Plus, then I read through the testimonials on her website. Samar’s made a serious difference in a number of people’s lives.
In this video interview with Samar Ocean Wolf Ciprian of Moon Yoga we discuss:

- How she discovered Maya Abdominal Therapy and her journey with it
- Self care – how you can learn Arvigo techniques to use at home
- Squatting over hot coals, and vaginal steaming stools
- Other ways of working with wellbeing she uses, and how they inform each other
- What you can learn in the upcoming self-care course
- Penis soaks for men
