I am dedicated to leading an inspired and inspiring life, being the best human I can be.
Practicing gymnastics and martial arts since age five, I took my first yoga class at the age of eleven and found my primary practice, and I swam competitively throughout my teens.. At nineteen I came across Daniel Reid’s book ‘The Tao of health, sex and longevity’ and I began my journey into energetic and conscious sexuality. This was where I first appreciated the relationship between sexual vitality, general wellness, and energetics. This realisation fundamentally reorientated my life. I read Politics (with a focus on Ecology) at the University of Hull and then immediately trained as a Holistic Therapist at age twenty two.
I was involved in personal development and peak performance trainings in my twenties and thirties, and Tantric, Taoist, Neo-Tantric and Hatha yoga retreats followed. At thirty five I trained in ‘Psychosexual Somatics’ and then ‘Sexological Bodywork’, two of the most comprehensive somatic psycho-sexual trainings available. I have been working as an intimacy coach and bodyworker for the last eight years, and as a yoga and meditation teacher for the last three.
I have spent my adult life dedicated to both personal and planetary wellness. Inspired in my childhood by a combination of David Attenborough documentaries and the privilege of family holidays in exotic locations, I have held a lifelong commitment to sustainability and humanity’s position as guardians of the natural world.
Over the last 20 years I have launched a now renowned organic streetwear business, and an electric vehicle boutique showroom in South Kensington. I’ve also been a part of several youth support organisations including The Princes Trust, and ‘A Band of Brothers’; a ‘Rites of Passage’ charity with phenomenally high success metrics.
I believe in human kindness and in the fundamental practice of authentic win-win love based relationships in my business and personal life.
These days I am based primarily in London, where I work as an intimacy & wellness coach, facilitate workshops in authentic relating, intimacy and connection, teach yoga and seek to live an elegant and effective life of kindness and courage.
I am committed to supporting the emergence of healthy, interdependent community as I believe it is here that salvation for the great challenges of our time will be found.
Please get in touch with any questions about my work and how I may support you into your fullest expression of vitality, intimacy and community participation.
With love, Drew

I studied Psychosexual Somatics (PST) with Mike Lousada from 2012 - 2015, assisting on three of the year long trainings after completing two cycles as a student.
Psychosexual Somatics Therapy is a revolutionary, body-oriented therapeutic modality dealing with sex and intimacy issues. PST is a unique combination of neuroscience, psychotherapeutic and bodywork disciplines, it offers an integrated approach for addressing mind and body so that full resolution can be achieved.
JOSEPH KRAMER / DEEJ JUVENTIN / UMA FURMAN
I studied the Certificate in Sexological Bodywork in 2014 with pioneering somatic sex teacher Joseph Kramer, assisted by his senior teachers, and amazing somatic practitioners in their own right, Deej and Uma.
Sexological Bodyworkers are somatic sex educators, supporting individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own erotic development, learn about their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns. Our teaching involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breathwork, touch, erotic massage, pelvic release work, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching. One of the somatic realms that Sexological Bodyworkers introduce to our students is a state of arousal that is free of fantasy, unfinished emotional business, religious dogma, cultural caveats and habitual sexual behaviors. In this meditative state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom and freedom. Sexological Bodyworkers believe that sexual health and erotic education are basic human rights.
After first practicing with Octavio in 2012 when on a three month sabbatical in Bali, I spent a further two years studying with him and his excellent co-teachers at ‘The Practice’ in Canggu, Bali in 2016 & 2017. I completed the 200 hour teacher training certificate in 2017 and have been teaching & practicing this powerful Tantric Hatha Yoga ever since. It is a potent form, weaving together asana, pranayama and meditation seamlessly into an authentic modern expression of the alchemical yoga practices mostly unfamiliar in western yoga studios.
JASON DIGGES & RYEL KELSTANO
The Authentic Relating Training (ART) is a series of workshops offering cutting edge tools for deepening connection and human intimacy, gleaned from western and eastern lineages.
The social technology and tools presented in ART have been cultivated and tested for over 15 years and are on the cutting edge of relational empowerment. This is relational and emotional training that can instantly transform your ability to connect with others and recognize opportunities in the midst of conflict.
This training breaks down all the core skills needed and provides the ability to practice them in real time. The cutting edge ART trainings are designed to instill in you the skills that can be used in your life to transform yourselves and your relationships right away. The same Level 1 training has been offered in schools, corporations, spiritual practice groups, prisons and to the general public, all with deep and profound results.
MICHAELA BOEHM & STEVE JAMES
I have been studying with Michaela since 2012, and with her teaching partner Steve since 2015. The tapestry of their combined lineages weaves together Kashmir shaivism, tantra, martial arts, trauma therapy, Christian mysticism, Vajrayana Buddhism and more. Michaela and Steve are absolute leaders in their field and represent, in my opinion the very best of embodiment practices available today. As well as attending many of their workshops over the last 8 years, I have been on their ‘Apprentice Parth’ study track to facilitate the ‘Non Linear Movement Method’ and the ‘Intimacy & Attraction Workshop’, which I’ll be offering in 2019 in London & Europe. Their clients include many well known actors, business leaders and politicians including Will Smith and Gwyneth Paltrow.
