I was interested in trying this for a long time when a friend invited me to join him for a naked men's yoga class, and I've been back several times now, on different days and with different teachers. It's always a good experience, and sometimes it's a stellar experience. The vibe is really accepting and not intimidating at all. The guys who go are welcoming and friendly, and they come in all shapes, sizes, races, and ages. There aren't a lot of venues where you can say that. The teachers are caring and helpful, and they know their stuff. The yoga itself is sometimes challenging, sometimes not challenging enough for my taste; but I always get something out of it, and I always leave feeling renewed. -Dave R.
"Restorative yoga with Peter is an extremely relaxing, calming, and self nurturing experience. Unlike a typical flow class, which can pump up the volume and work you out in a sweaty series of asanas, Peter's restorative class allows you to go inside and relax deeply, holding poses using various props for a more prolonged period of time. This quiet holding is both challenging and soothing at the same time. It is a wonderful way to spend an evening, and truly is a gift to yourself." -Tom Mason
Why do naked yoga? Besides the obvious question of "Why NOT?" and the freedom of moving through poses without the restrictions of clothing, there's something very gently intimate about taking down the layers of fabric we use to wall ourselves off from each other in subtle but real ways. Moreover, mens naked yoga provides a healthy space in which to do so. As far as I can tell, it doesn't matter what age you are or what your body is like. It's not about that here. All the teachers I've worked with have been super sweet, created a very safe and accepting environment, and took us through great yoga. The folks in class have likewise been sweet and open... the vibe is very down to earth and real. I have never experienced a creepy sexual vibe or encountered anything that felt like judgment in this space. -Josh A.
Whenever I am in SF, I make sure I do at least one session of Naked Yoga. My first class was with Darren Main in 2006. As someone who is somewhat of a wallflower, I was very nervous and apprehensive that first time and am still not 100% comfortable with my nude body in front of others until ten or so minutes into the class and then I eventually get over myself. All of the instructors are very professional and all of the guys I have met in the classes are nothing but kind and supportive. When everyone is naked, it seems to bring everyone's guard and walls down. There are men in the classes of all different shapes, sizes, colors, backgrounds, and with varying degrees of yoga experience. Nobody will judge your body or the amount of yoga experience you have (except maybe yourself). I recommend everyone try Naked Yoga SF at least once. -Brian A.
I never seem to comprehend the phrase "perfect yoga voice" until I practice yoga with Ken, both in an individual basis and in class. His gentle, soothing, yet deep and confident voice makes yoga directions easy to follow. Aside from his voice, he is very patient and understands the needs of his students and gauge the intensity of the class quite well. In a class setting, he would provide several alternatives to a yoga pose that accomodate the different level of yoga practice between the students. In other words, whether you are a new yoga student or someone that practice it for a long time, you can still benefit from taking his class. Ken is warm and friendly and certainly provide adequate attention for new and returning students. I thoroughly enjoy his classes as I have seen great improvement in my flexibility and coordination over the past year. I am an exercise physiologist and I usually recommend clients to practice yoga as part of his/her flexibilty training component and Ken would be the top name on my list whom I refer my clients to! -Tim
