4 Weeks To Truly Satisfied
Week 1: The Truth About Porn
The Negative Effects Porn Has On The Brain
Motivations For Quitting & The Dark Side of The Industry
Social Media And How It Connect With Porn Use
How The Use of Pornography Affects Your Relationship
In this week's module we uncover the hidden and "not-talked about" side-effects of porn use that could be destroying your relationship. Porn affects the brain in the same way as any hard drug. We dig into the science and studies on the impacts it has on the brain (perfect for the skeptics who don't want to quit)! Because porn has become socially acceptable, most people are not correlating the constant stress and unhappiness in their relationship to porn use or social media, but the effects on the brain are huge! If you or your partner are using pornography it is impossible for it to not be affecting you and your relationship. For anyone to quit an addicting habit, the pros have to out-way the cons and the decision has to come as an authentic inner choice of free will - our goal is to make this choice easier to make on your own. In this module, we also dive into the motivation and benefits that come from quitting. We talk about social media, how it can become just as addicting for similar reasons, and what the porn/social media use is really masking psychologically.
Week 2: Getting to the Root
The psychology and real reason porn use even begins - shadow work 101 - 2 videos
How porn use or social media misuse impacts partners in a relationship - 2 videos
In this week's module, we dive into "shadow work" and clearly identify each of the psychological underlying reasons why a person first starts using porn and what it represents for them on a deeper level. This week's module will help you and your partner come to know and understand each other on a brand new level of depth and connection. Each of you will get clear on your shadows(unhealed wounds), triggers, and how they play out within your relationship. We will dive into not only the user's psychology but now, how porn use affects the partner. Together, you will start to uncover the root of the behavioral or thought programs that come between you and are causing issues in the relationship. We will also begin building a strategy to heal the original root programs and beliefs and replace them with love and compassion - the necessary component to true healing.
In this week's module you will move on from the past, give up resentment, and move into gratitude for your partner and your life together with new strategies to help you navigate the healing process. This module is all about how to break the bad habits coming between you and how you can support and show up for each other along the way. We will cover the power of choice within our perspectives, accountability, compassion, & forgiveness. You will learn how to talk about pornography use, social media, and all related triggers from an empowered, compassionate place rather than a reactionary, defensive place. You will develop strategies for going through the recovery processes as an individual and as a couple, identifying symptoms and side effects of nuero-chemical down-regulations, and what to do about withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and relapses.

Every man needs to take this course. It is truly a hidden topic and no one is talking about the very real side effects of porn that most of us our unknowingly dealing with daily either in our relationships and in our own minds. I have been feeling called to quit using porn for a long time and I have tried to stop many times. It almost caused my long term partner to leave me. So I finally made the choice to get help and signed up for this course. I can tell you nothing has been this effective and I am now planning to propose to my girlfriend after feeling very hesitant to make that decision out of the programming I accumulated from social media and porn. I am a raving fan and I try to tell my friends that power of quitting now. My only regret is that I wish I would of known this information sooner. - Jared
I bought this course to watch because my partner is a regular porn user and I wanted to get something that would help him understand why this is not healthy for him or our relationship. I knew he would be against watching this but I started watching it myself anyways. He eventually through overhearing the course and through seeing me dedicated to completing it, finally sat down next to me and started listening. I can't express my gratitude to Mat and Ash enough because I believe their work has reached my partner's soul in a way that I have had a hard time reaching myself. Mat especially makes guys feels comfortable and at east and even empowered instead of ashamed or judged. He shares so much from his personal struggle that it puts everyone at the same level. I highly recommend getting this course even if you are the partner of a users. Mircales are possible and we are just one of many couples I am sure they have helped or saved. Thank you! -Emma
This course empowers you to do the inner work to quit bad habits. Period. Vices are serving no one and I mostly signed up to challenge myself to be self-empowered and a master over my negative habits. It is helped me open my eyes to all the ways I was limiting my potential through porn use. It is such a disempowering habit wrecking havoc on millions of people and they truly are unaware of how ensalved they are to it. I am one almost two months porn free and it is like I have been reborn. I am never going back. Thank you Mat!
Meet Your Guides
Mat & Ash are best known as The Yoga Couple to their 500K+ online community. The influential couple is internationally recognized for their holistic healing work, authentic yoga teachings, and as the creators of The Inner Work method. Through alternative healing practices such as transpersonal psychology, chakra balancing, science of mind, and yoga philosophy, their work empowers people to self-heal.
As Top 10 Amazon bestselling authors of The Inner Work, hosts of The Inner Work podcast and cast members on the first season of Battle of The Fittest Couple on Paramount Network, they have made it their mission to bridge the gap between Western Psychology and Eastern Philosophy, especially when it comes to navigating relationships and healing our inner child wounds. The basis of their teachings, The Inner Work, focuses on understanding the varying levels of human consciousness and the power to self-heal any aspect of the human condition including relationship issues, overcoming addictions, inner child healing, and trauma recovery. Mat and Ash boldly give a voice to taboo topics such as pornography addiction and the importance of women’s menstrual cycle awareness and their fresh outlook is down to earth and accessible for all.
As individuals, both Mat and Ash were on different journeys prior to becoming The Yoga Couple.
Mat had a very religious upbringing and started using pornography, alcohol, and marijuana at the age of fourteen in a rebellion against the shame and guilt he felt was projected onto him. His experimentation with porn and substances developed into a 15-year addiction cycle which he finally broke free after getting married and committing to do ‘The Inner Work’ within his relationship. Mat resonates deeply with the archetype of the Wounded Healer and believes that from our suffering can emerge our greatest gifts to humanity.
Graduating from high school at age 15 to begin his college studies and receiving a bachelor's degree in Psychology at 19 years old, he worked in inpatient psychiatry for a year before heading into naturopathic medical school in Arizona. It was there that he met the three colleagues who would change the course of his life forever: a Yogi, a former Buddhist monk, and a Hindu. Through them, he was introduced to the eastern philosophies of Self-Realization.
Mat was inspired to then leave medical school to further his studies of consciousness and the mind. He enrolled into a Master's program to become a family therapist, but still unsatisfied with the limited attention academics gave to understanding consciousness, Mat immersed himself into full time study of research on consciousness and enlightenment conducted by Dr. Hawkins, M.D, PH.D. Mat’s current “Hero’s Journey” program is an alternative approach to traditional therapy. Drawing from his own personal experiences, he counsels both individuals and couples all over the world using ‘The Inner Work’ to approach healing from a spiritual lens.
Mat is also trained in the YogaWorks method under Alexandra Crow and has gone on to teach at studios and festivals across the United States with his wife, Ash.
Ash’s journey began by practicing jivamukti yoga at age 16 when a friend introduced her to Hinduism. Growing up with a mother severely addicted to narcotics, Ash was inspired to investigate spirituality and alternative healing early on in her life. By the age of 20, Ash began studying to become a yoga educator with her mentor Kathleen Santor. She continued her search for truth and wisdom at UNLV studying Eastern philosophy and Eastern religion, while simultaneously teaching yoga therapy to patients under the direct guidance of Dr. Alissa Wampole, OMD. She moved on to study authentic yoga with many different groups including the Vedanta Society of Ramakrishna.
Wanting to bring the light of yoga to "Sin City", Ash opened her first yoga studio with the Modo Yoga franchise at age 25, and her second yoga studio, Evolution Yoga a year later. She has since trained under teachers such as Ted Grand, founder of Moksha Yoga, Annie Carpenter, founder of SmartFlow, and Aileen Epstein Ignadiou, founder of the Iyengar Yoga Center, and has taken special interest to studying the work of George Feuerstein PH.D Indologist - Founder of Traditional Yoga Studies. After 10 years of "yoga hopping" she finally found her path and accepted initiation into Kriya Yoga under her Master Paramahansa Yogananda.
Besides being one half of The Yoga Couple™ with her husband Mat, Ash is also the co-author of The Blood Book, Co-Founder of Spirit Woman; an organization dedicated to helping women live more in harmony with the natural rhythm of their cycles, and founder of Sacred Yoga Institute; a Yoga Alliance Registered school focused on traditional and authentic yoga studies. Ash attributes yoga to helping her with many aspects of her life from helping heal her mother’s substance abuse (she is 10 years sober) to her own sensory sensitivities and social phobia from her recent diagnosis of Asperger’s.
Together The Yoga Couple reside on Big Island, Hawaii where they host healing retreats, yoga teacher trainings, and offer one-one-one life counseling specializing in utilizing The Inner Work. Mat and Ash are devotees of Paramahansa Yogananda, supporters of the Self-Realization Fellowship and Yogoda Satsanga Society of India, and are committed to sustainable living and the dharmic path in all areas of their lives.
