WHY DO YOGA NAKED?
Because everything is more fun when you do it naked!
We love doing yoga naked because it offers both freedom of movement and freedom within. Clothes bind, especially during yoga. They become uncomfortable, sweaty, and downright unpleasant. We at Austin Naked Yoga take the clothes out of the equation! After removing our clothes, we are left with something pure, something that is natural. We champion acceptance of oneself and others. We become balanced.
SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
Shed Your Clothes, Open Your Heart, and Free Your Mind
Many utilize the safe environment we provide at Austin Naked Yoga to move past issues with nudity and body image. For some, making the decision to come to their first class is a huge step. We want to help you make this first step into a better more accepting world. Our group is hugely diverse, very close knit at times, and extremely accepting. Many in our group count their friends in A.N.Y. as their best friends. We offer a community where you can be free to be your natural self.
WHAT ARE CLASSES LIKE?
Our classes are full of friendly, welcoming guys
You first check in at the front counter and make your way into our studio. If you didn’t bring your own mat, not to worry, we have plenty that you can use free of charge. Once in the studio, the staff will let you know when it is OK for you to take off your clothes and place them in a cube (fancy way of saying shelf). After that, you can find a spot for your yoga mat and sit down, stretch, or be social until the class begins. Our classes are geared for all levels of yogis (including beginners). We have bathrooms and cold water for you as well!
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
Classes are one hour and fifteen minutes long
Most of our yogis bring a yoga mat and a towel to dry off. We provide you with water for hydration. Don’t worry if you forget your mat or towel, we have plenty of extras. Make sure to tell your instructor if you have any special physical needs such as a knee injury, etc. They will make sure to tailor parts of the practice to your needs. At the end of class we all do the final yoga pose, shavasana, which is intended to relax your body. After this time, herbal tea is passed around to all the yogis and you are free to relax, talk, stretch, etc.
HOW MANY GUYS ATTEND?
We usually have 20+ guys!
WHAT TYPES OF GUYS ATTEND?
All types of men attend our classes. We are very diverse in age, body types, and ethnicity. Ages of our students range from 20s to 70s. We also take great pride in having men of all body types (six packs and no packs). No matter what your body type, sexuality, ethnicity, hair color, etc., you will fit in just fine.
DO I HAVE TO BE NAKED?
Our classes are certified 100% clothing free! This does not mean that you have to be perfectly comfortable in a nudist environment to attend. Many of our yogis initially started coming to class to address fears of being naked around others. Austin Naked Yoga offers a safe environment that is perfect for this widening of horizons. Many of our members have gained confidence in themselves that they did not possess before attending. This is part of A.N.Y.’s mission, to provide a safe environment for people who wish to explore a freedom and connection with their body that few others possess.
WHAT IF I GET EXCITED?
Be proud of it! Embrace your boner-ness! In all seriousness, this is a great question and one we get asked all the time. In actuality, once you are n the act of practicing yoga poses (asanas), it’s very difficult to keep an erection. For this reason, it’s quite rare to see them during our class. But if you should happen to get an erection, think of it as a good thing. This is not something to be embarrassed about. It is rather something to be celebrated.
IS THERE SEXUAL ENERGY?
There can be sexual energy present during some of our classes but it is not a goal or something we focus on. The primary goal of A.N.Y. is to provide yoga in a natural state.
IS THIS A HOOKUP GROUP?
We are very much a social group but we are not a hookup group. Just like any social gathering, sometimes sexual relationships are formed just as sometimes long-term relationships are formed. However, the majority of men that attend the group do so for yoga and the social aspect, not because they are seeking sexual release. That being said, Austin Naked Yoga is very sex positive in that we realize the benefits of embracing sexual energy.
IS THIS CLASS RIGHT FOR ME?
All of our classes are beginner friendly. Remember that everyone was a beginner once. You are not alone. Every week we see new yogis emerge. Embrace your newbie-ness and come join us!
WHAT IF I HAVE AN INJURY?
Please get clearance from a medical professional before participating in this or any fitness class.

We have tried holding both women’s classes and co-ed classes and neither had enough attendance to maintain their respective groups.
