(at Widener University’s Annual Careers in Sexuality Conference, 2015)
Sukriti (she/her) is an Indian-American sexuality educator and yoga teacher in the Boston area, and a student at Widener University’s Center for Human Sexuality Studies, working toward her M.Ed. in human sexuality education.
She works primarily with young people (14-17) and adults, facilitating learning experiences on various topics within human sexuality. Broadly, these include sexual health & reproduction, body image, pleasure, attraction, intimacy (communication, healthy relationships), identity (gender, orientation), sexual behavior, and personal empowerment. She teaches through a working understanding of systems of power and oppression, and helps people unpack how these systems affect their own ability to thrive, sexually and otherwise. Born to immigrant parents, she is especially interested in how these systems affect experiences of sexuality/relationships for other first and second-generation Americans.
Apart from teaching yoga & sex education, Sukriti is a devoted volunteer with YWCA Boston’s Youth Leadership Initiative (InIt). Also at any given moment, she is likely petting the nearest consenting furry being.
