Naked yoga has long been a staple of programming at GNI’s annual men’s nude Gathering, along with other health and wellness offerings. This year, we are having more yoga than ever before. GNI has lined up talented yoga instructors, some of them certified, to teach at The Gathering. There will be a variety of styles and intensity to suit a range of practitioners, from the novice to the experienced. This will provide an easy introduction to new yogis as well as an opportunity for more seasoned ones to maintain their practice without interruption while on vacation with us.
Nearly two dozen classes in various styles
There will be nearly two dozen classes throughout The Gathering, mostly during the day, but also one at night by candlelight. The selection includes Power classes, Vinyasa (flow), partner sessions, Kundalini, Yin, and Nidra. In addition, guided meditation will be offered, as well as some early-morning energy work. Each teacher will offer no more than a couple of sessions or so because we want them and you also to enjoy the many other experiences The Gathering offers.
