Hey, we're Kaysie & Tosh!

We built EXPLORINGNOTBORING as the world’s first-ever community Adventure Jar for uniquely local experiences.

Since 2020, we’ve been on a mission to partner with real people over commercialized brands to reinvent the way that you create and share rich, memorable experiences in your own city & beyond ✨ #exploringnotboring

We highlight authentic experiences, not tourist traps, big bus vibes, and mainstream attractions that are currently responsible for 80% of revenue in the experience economy.

Let’s change the status quo! Together, we can shape a happier world through shared, meaningful experiences that empower our collective happiness with an inevitable stretching of our individual skills, knowledge, and achievements. Are you in?

Online Beekeeping Workshop

TEST PURPOSES ONLY! But that doesn't mean we don't have some bees up our sleeves! Our Experience Partner, Marvin Jordana, offers a seasonal experience with honey bees that is 1000% better than this test listing ever could be. Stay tuned for Honey Bee Therapy coming soon! You'll have the opportunity to join Marvin in a sacred realm where you’ll transcend the facts about bees and discover how to connect with the complexity of nature. Safety First: Marvin will cover rules of engagement and teach you how to co-exist with these fuzzy pollinators by respectfully entering their hive in order to observe the inner workings of the colony. Moving slowly, the group will do a brief breathing exercise to quiet the mind. You’ll learn about the bees' life cycle, different roles in the hive, their fascinating social structure and ways of communicating through dance, sound and pheromones. You may even meet the Queen and feed the bees honey. See Ticket Info below for more deets!

Pole Dance Class

Enjoy the freedom to explore your own capacity and potential in this unique Pole Dance Choreography class that brings in the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. We will start by warming up all the joints, learning 3-5 pole moves that can be combined into a routine, then we'll turn off the lights and dance it out with what we've learned. To wrap up the class, we'll stretch out the body before finishing up with some breathwork. All my classes include a metaphysical twist, so expect some woo woo stuff to help you play with moving and releasing emotional energy trapped within your body! Bring: An open mind, a water bottle, a pair of tight-fitting shorts/sports bra and baggy layers (sweat pants and socks) to keep up body temperature during warm-up and cool-downs.
