VIDEO: NEW YORK CITY YOGA STUDIO OFFERS ALL-NUDE CLASS TO HELP STUDENTS FOCUS ON CELEBRATING THEIR BODIES
I wonder what this world will look like before end of this year!!!
One New York City yoga studio has taken yoga’s flexible principles to the next level by offering co-ed, naked vinyasa courses.
The class, introduced the Bold & Naked studio in Chelsea, is supposed to provide students with a new way to focus on celebrating their bodies and is not intended to be sexually evocative.
In the class, all the student are stripped down to their birthday their site ‘IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN ORGASM, YOU ARE IN THE WRONG PLACE.’
As the studio writes on its website: ‘While many equate being naked with sex, this couldn't be further from the truth in a naked yoga class. It's about being comfortable in your own skin and the amazing confidence that comes with it.
‘Practicing yoga naked frees you from negative feelings about your body and allows [you] to be more accepting and deeper connected with yourself and the world around you.’
But according to the studio, none of this body-to-body contact is meant as ‘sexual touching and should any contact of sexual nature occur, it will not be tolerated and will result in the offending member being asked to leave.
‘Anyone who has been asked to leave will not be allowed back to attend classes in the future.’
Bold & Naked has actually firmly stated on their site (in capitals, no less): ‘IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN ORGASM, YOU ARE IN THE WRONG PLACE.’
The studio says that erections during the class do occur, but happen ‘rarely'.
To my surprise, nude yoga classes have been around since the 1960 according to Daily Mail and have recently started gaining back popularity.
