The Movement of the Feminine
S Factor® is a feminine movement practice - a sensuous workout for body and soul that’s intelligently designed to open the female body into her full, free, erotic expression.
Most S Factor classes are open to women only. When women gather with other women an opportunity for free self expression and sensual exploration is created. However, we know that feminine and masculine are both essences that lives within all of us regardless of gender. We also offer All Gender S Factor classes so everyone, regardless of gender, can explore the sensual and feminine parts of themselves.
