Wild & Sublime host and producer Karen Yates is a certified somatic sex educator who began the show in 2018 when she realized how important it was to normalize the conversation about sexuality, especially in a live setting.
Her years prior in the arts—as a director, actor, writer and more—allowed her to create a lively show that imparts information, but also asks deeper questions about the things that keep us from sexual joy.
She now works as a somatic intimacy coach with couples, both in Chicago and online. Her commitment to somatic work is based on her lived experience that the body holds all wisdom and that one must connect with it to find the answers.
Additionally, Karen is an energy worker employing frequency using a sound healing method called Biofield Tuning. Frequency is the base of the known world, including our bodies, and she finds it an effective method to move through obstacles that keep us from ease.
