The Naked Yoga for Men group offers naked Yoga and Qi Gong classes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, where men can come together and connect spiritually, mentally and physically in the absence of sexual tension. Join us in these playful and fun non-sexual classes for men who want to bond in a unique way.

There are a number of reasons to practice naked. While our society often equates being naked with sex, other cultures have found that being naked removes many social and economic barriers. It is also very freeing to move the body without the restriction of clothing, and yoga provides a great way to deepen body acceptance. Also, being naked can bring up many of our vulnerabilities. By facing these fears in the context of a safe and supportive community of men, we naturally become more grounded and comfortable with ourselves.


Men of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages and physical abilities are welcome to attend. Whether you are straight, gay or bi; new to yoga or a long time yogi – you are welcome. All you need is yourself, a bottle of water and a towel and a yoga mat.

Logistics: Classes are donation ­based; we suggest a donation of between $10 and $20. You should arrive 10 minutes before class begins. No registration is needed. A limited number of spare mats are available at each location. We encourage people to refrain from wearing colognes and scented deodorants as some people are sensitive to these smells. At the same we ask that you please shower before class as some people are sensitive to natural smells as well.


“There is an endless net of threads throughout the universe…At every crossing of the threads there is an individual. And every individual is a crystal bead. And every crystal bead reflects not only the light from every other crystal in the net but also every other reflection throughout the universe.”   -Indra’s Net


“The mystical bond of brotherhood makes all men brothers.”
