The body is political even if you don’t want it to be, so how do you liberate it?
The guide there for you when you asking yourself questions and trying to get more in tune with your body.
Why don't I like dancing in public? How can I unlearn body shame? What do I need to do in order to feel more comfortable with taking up space? Is there a way for me to feel more liberated or connected to my sensuality?
Trauma is real, it's not only what we have lived through, but iwhat we live with! From patriarchy to racism, anthe binary, everyday we fight to rightfully exist as they are. Embodied sensuality is a movement ministry that centers femmes in their pursuit to explore their bodies' possibilities through sensual movement. The practice is very self-based and gives students the space to deepen body awareness and entry points into embodiment. Each session examines tools to help them obtain a connection to their erotic vibration and ways to maintain that connection for themselves. It is vital that every femme or human of that matter, be in constant relationship with their bodies, and to be at ease inside of their bodies.
My practice is informed by all of my intersections and my journey to completely receive the fullness of myself
Movement is my ministry to access deep feeling and healing. I am a natural spiritualist that descends from earth-workers. Trauma-informed restorative practices and intersectional womanism frames my work. I am sw-affirming and I actively work to decoloniz my approach to healing arts.

There is so much messaging in the world that others queerness when in retrospect, queerness is all. It is not a divorce from the mainstream, it is beyond its conception. Embodied Sensuality is about finding your transcendental self, the self that knows no repression and is the gatekeeper to personal truth, but yet to find the spaces to flourish!
I deeply believe in not being a guru, but a friend to hold your hand as you unravel yourself and a fierce advocate for your liberation!
I have had the pleasure of taking four of Raylá Meshawn’s “Sensual Flow” workshops. Each time, I have left their workshop, feeling more radically embodied and just overall ‘free’. Raylá has this uncanny ability to pull a spiritual and sensual life force out of you, by encouraging you to tap into your highest level of sexuality through movement and play. Overall, Raylá is a great facilitator of pleasure and through their workshops, I found flow, dance, and more at home in my body.

I love taking classes with Raylá. Raylá has a wonderful balance of making class both accessible and challenging. Their personal sense of ease makes connecting with your own body easy and enjoyable. There are a lot of smiles in class. I highly recommend it for both trained dancers and those new to dance.

In every event of Raylá’s I have attended, they created a safe and inspiring space for sensual self-expression. The first experience I had with Raylá was at a Sensual Flow event and I left the workshop feeling so jazzed up and inspired about movement. It’s not just about the movement, it’s about how Raylá helps you reclaim your self-expression. It’s how you feel about yourself and the power you can find in movement. Raylá is a treasure— could not recommend their workshops enough!
