Perhaps this is because nudity often tends to make people uncomfortable; as one student in the naked yoga class notes, people frequently associate nudity with sex. However, there is nothing sexual about nude yoga, although no one judges those who happen to get a little excited during class. This is one of the reasons this class can be so healing. What do you think, guys? Does the thought of being pants-less in front of other people make you squirm, or would it make you more comfortable in your own skin?
About a year ago, a friend told me about a men's-only naked yoga class in Manhattan. Wouldn't it just be awkward? Penises flopping around. Body odors free to roam the studio without clothing to prevent their escape. The class was part of a larger wellness institution called MMX , which unofficially caters to queer men. I wondered if the queer focus would somehow affect the dynamic of the class: Would it be more sexual? And if so, how does that translate when you're in downward dog? He asked if I'd be interested in attending a class to write about it. With Seneca's points fresh in my memory, I went into the studio with an open mind and heart which totally sounds like something a naked yoga instructor would say.
