Our Nude Yoga classes are for men in Charlotte, NC and the surrounding Charlotte Metro area who are interested in the practice of yoga without the restrictions of clothing.
Our goal is to provide an opportunity for male community and holistic social interaction between supportive, centered individuals who enjoy the practice of yoga as well as the company of other naked men. We strive to provide an atmosphere of camaraderie, body-acceptance, and sensuality (not sexuality). Although sensuality is an intrinsic part of this group practice, it should be clear that this is not a sexual venue. You will work . . . you will sweat . . . and you will love it. Join us in this playful and fun yoga class for men who want to bond in a unique way. This is a great opportunity to experience non-sexual male intimacy.
There are a number of reasons to practice naked. While our society often equates being naked with sex, other cultures have found that being naked removes many social and economic barriers. It is also very freeing to move the body without the restriction of clothing, and yoga provides a great way to deepen body acceptance. Also, being naked can bring up many of our vulnerabilities. By facing these fears in the context of a safe and supportive community of men, we naturally become more grounded and comfortable with ourselves.
The group is open to adult men of all ages (18 years and over) and body types. By no means do you have to have a perfect body to attend our classes. Our yoga classes are about the journey of enrichment of our bodies and mind, not a pursuit of the perfect form. Whether you are gay, bi or straight; new to yoga or a longtime yogi—you are welcome. The classes are $15, and all you need is yourself, a bottle of water, a towel and a yoga mat.
