Naked Yoga Immersion
Naked yoga has long been a staple of Gathering programming, along with other health and wellness offerings. Each year, we are having more yoga than ever before. GNI has lined up talented yoga instructors, some of them certified, to teach nearly two dozen classes at The Gathering in a variety of styles. Get yoga class and faculty info.
Enjoy bridge, yoga, aerobics, volleyball, a fully equipped nude gym and weight room, canoe and drag races, oil wrestling or just relax at the pool and read a book.
Social Hours, 5 – 6-ish PM daily
Savor wine, beer, soft drinks, select mixed drinks, and snacks in a beautiful lakeside setting. Every party has a theme, and costumes are encouraged! So plan ahead and undress to impress! Naked is also a totally acceptable costume at all of our themed social hours! While this event can be an eyeful, please respect GNI’s photo policy.
Member clubs are invited to ‘sponsor’ a social hour. There is no cost to you and we provide the beverages and snacks. We simply need at least two (2) members manning the wine bar at any given time. In exchange you can hang your banner, set out brochures, hand out invitations to cabin parties and your sponsorship will be mentioned in The Daily E-former. We even let you pick the theme! To see this years’ lineup of themes, click here: Social Hours. Let the Business Office know if you’re interested in sponsoring a night.
The Sunset Strip
Evening activities include nightly shows, contests, parties, movies, snacks, and the world-class Dance Club – with an impressive sound system and light show – into the wee hours.
Evenings feature talent shows and pageants such as Miss Lace and the the Mr. GNI contest. These are well-produced events that are sure to entertain and delight you. Our Mr. GNI Leather, Mr. Bare Bear contests will also be held at other times. There’s also a nightly movie series after the main show.
We’ll also hand out prizes and awards throughout the week.
Big Bids: The NAC Auction
To help raise funds for the Naturist Action Committee (NAC), bring us an item you’d like to donate, and help us fetch top dollar for it through our silent auctions. Bob Morton, NAC Executive Director, will speak to the group about the anti-nudity opposition NAC works hard to overcome, including legal issues and nude beaches. We encourage you to make a donation to this important organization.
