Naked Yoga

<p>Starting around the turn of this century with just a handful of groups, Naked Yoga has burgeoned into a major trend as practitioners realize the added benefits of yoga unencumbered by clothes. While there are some mixed-gender classes and a few for women only, the overwhelming majority of Naked Yoga classes are for men. Yoga has long been a staple of the program for GNI’s annual men’s nude <a title=”The GNI Gathering” href=”/the-gathering”>Gathering</a>. <br /><br />GNI supports this wonderful movement year-round by maintaining an online listing with contact information for Naked Yoga classes open to men throughout the world. It is updated in real time as GNI learns of changes.<br /><br />Although GNI’s listing includes many physical addresses, some groups prefer not to publish their meeting location for reasons of privacy or security. In either case, when planning to attend a class, make contact beforehand to verify the group is still meeting at the published time, has enough space, and welcomes your participation. And please <strong>let them know that GNI referred you!</strong></p><p><span style=”font-size: 16pt;”><a title=”Naked Yoga Classes” href=”http://gni.memberclicks.net/index.php?option=com_community&view=search&searchId=100963″ class=”continue” style=”margin-top: 10px;” target=”_blank”>View class listing *</a></span></p><p><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”><strong>Navigation notes:</strong> First, click on above link.
