In the corner of a dance studio on the third floor of an undisclosed location, I lean against a piano and loosen my belt while wiping the sweat gathering on my forehead. Soon I am naked, about to take my first-ever yoga class—garbed or otherwise—with the dozen or so lads of Naked Yoga for Men, a Cambridge-based group that has practiced yoga au naturel for the last 15 years.

Minneapolis chases a nude yoga group back underground
Soma Be spent a lot of the 1980s and ’90s heavily medicated.

Soma had been chronically depressed since the time he’d graduated from Bethel College in the late 1970s. The next couple decades he recalls “not doing much.”

Nude yoga might be entertaining for adults. But is it adult entertainment?

By 1990, he’d been prescribed “tons and tons of medication” for anxiety and depression, leaving him in a drugged haze. At night he couldn’t sleep, and aimlessly wandered the streets of the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis. One night he got mugged. Another time he found a murdered woman’s body.

Why do many naturists practice yoga and are many yogis interested in naturism?

Well, that’s simple. Both lifestyles are for women who had their puberty in the late sixties, took way too much acid, engaged on a lifetime search for enlightment and swore never to shave their armpits again. That’s it. End of story.

“I wanted to create a practice for women to love and accept their bodies,” says Ms Rees, 30. “People told me Perth wasn’t ready for it, that the world wasn’t ready for it. Pretty much every workshop I’ve ever run has sold out.”
