My work is focused on nurturing a healthy connection to the sexual, life-force energy. I see it as authenticity, joy, light, creativity, connection, excitement... I work with clients to liven and embrace this sacred energy source, encouraging connection to all the feelings in the physical and emotional body. When we become present to the feelings of pleasure generated inside our bodies, it grows, gets amplified and can be spread throughout the entire being - resulting in more physical, emotional and spiritual consciousness. It starts opening us up to a better connection with ourselves, our partners and the whole of life, leading to a more orgasmic way of living.
Sexual energy is something to revere and consciously cultivate. It is a connection to self, to creativity, to every ounce of spiritual energy, heart energy, and erotic energy inside of you. When ignited, it burns through blockages that are held within the body. Often shame and wounding separate us from our bodies and our ability to surrender to our god-given ability to experience pleasure. I use the therapeutic tools of touch, movement, massage, breath, voice and imagination to re-connect to the body, heighten sensitivity, become present to the moment, move through blockages, enhance self-acceptance and nurture better relating.
Imagine yourself as a flame. The first spark gets ignited in the sexual centre. It is an extremely pleasant feeling, stay connected to the feeling.
Give it breath, oxygen makes it burn brighter - warmer. With every breath the body expands, softens, making space for the flame to spread.
The flame grows bigger, brighter, slowly spreading up, up, until it burns throughout the entire body.
The light of the flame moves fluidly, alive. It’s heat is certain, burning away anything that does not serve.
Heat emits out beyond the flame, gently warming the air around it.
A bright light shines from the base of the flame, exists as the flame, pierces through the darkness. Rays of warm light illuminates the world around it.
If this flame should join another… imagine the light!
I work from two locations:
Thursdays: 14A Bel Ombre Road, Constantia
All other days: Hillside Road, Fish Hoek
At the age of 49, I experienced a profound sexual awakening. It was like a long forgotten nerve suddenly connected and my consciousness spread throughout every single part of my body and femininity. This awareness snapped me out of victim mode and into an empowered participant in my life and in my relating.
Shortly after my awakening I produced a performance video to communicate what I am experiencing. The best way for me to communicate this awareness, is to simply show the emotional and physical aliveness I am feeling as a multi-faceted being.

I started my career as professional contemporary dancer in 1988 as one of the founder members of the PACT dance company. I am a choreographer and a performance artist - see more of my art on: www.leanbakker.com
I still perform from time to time and I facilitate a weekly expressive dance session in Kalk Bay.
I am registered Voice Movement Therapy (VMT) practitioner. VMT is an expressive arts therapy that recognise the voice, body and emotions as being deeply inter-connected. The work engages breath, voice, movement and massage to aid clients towards wholeness. My therapeutic training helps me greatly in understanding boundaries, the power of the imagination and the impact of what the body can teach us.
