Who these classes are for: 

BSY offers a wide range of naked yoga classes for men of all abilities and experience levels.  Please check the class descriptions below and on Gymcatch prior to booking to make sure the class is right for you. 

Most of our classes are Mixed Ability and so great if you've never done yoga before but have a reasonable degree of physical fitness but also if you have an existing practice but want an opportunity to develop and grow. Part flowing sequences and part static postures, you'll receive clear easy instructions and we will focus on key postures, breathing, developing strength and balance. You'll learn to connect mind and body and develop a deeper understanding of your own physicality.

Some of our classes are Intermediate Level and require a better level of physical fitness, though again no prior experience is required to join one of our Intermediate classes.  You can expect some inversions and power flow, and to work hard.

Men's Naked Yoga - Tuesday 3pm, Thursday 3pm, Friday 3pm (on-line only) - 75 mins

This class is perfect if you've never done yoga before, or if you have an existing practice but want an opportunity to develop and grow.  Matthew (Tues & Thurs), and Gérard (Fri) give clear easy instructions in layman's language (no sanskrit or chanting in these classes), and we focus on key postures, breathing, developing strength, and balance.  You'll learn to connect mind and body and develop a deeper understanding of your own physicality.  No prior experience is necessary, and the class is friendly and fun.

 

Good Morning Chakras - Tuesday 7am (on-line only) - 45 mins

Open, balance and connect with your first four chakras using physical exercises and Asanas directly linked to each of them. No chanting, no Sanskrit and staying on the physical side of the subject, these classes will give you a good opportunity to discover or deepen your knowledge about Chakras.No prior experiences or knowledge required to join these classes; you are all welcome. 

These playful classes will introduce you to the basics of the first four chakras: What they are, where they are, their colours, their sounds, why they are important and how to connect with and “balance” their energy.

We will work on one chakra per week on a monthly rotation: 1st Monday of the month: 1st chakra, 2nd Monday of the month: 2nd chakra, 3rd Monday of the month: 3rd chakra, 4th Monday of the month: 4th chakra and back to the 1st chakra… 

Early Men's Naked Yoga - Thursday 7am (on-line only) - 45 mins

An early morning naked traditional Hatha yoga based class with Gérard to nicely wake up and connect your mind and body. All the postures practiced will be familiar to anyone with some experience of yoga but will also be fine for beginners. We will play with some flowing sequences but also take the time to enjoy static poses. Perfect for refining the body’s balance to increase strength, flexibility and is an ideal way to set up the rest of the day.

Men's Naked Yoga (strong) - Monday 7pm (in-studio only) - 75 mins

Similar in style to Mens Naked Yoga, this class requires a reasonable degree of physical fitness, and focuses on more challenging poses. You can expect some inversions, hand-balances, powerflow sequences.  Don't be put off though, the class is often more more workshop style with Andy giving guidance on how to approach these difficult shapes.  This is an Intermediate class so a good level of fitness is required and expect to work hard: expect some inversions and powerflow.

Smooth Yoga - Tuesday 5pm - 60 mins

A gentle naked Hatha Yoga class taught at a slow pace. It’s a playful and welcoming class lead by Gérard, for the curious, for beginners and for yogis who are looking for a more introspective practice. This class will build breath capacity, balance and strength. It will allow you to feel what simple Asanas have to offer and how those effective poses benefit your body and mind. This is a satisfying class that uses all the rich tools of Yoga.

Bare Yoga - Monday 5pm - 75 mins

Andy teaches a more traditional flow class, but with a touch of his own contemporary style. We come together to practice a flowing yoga class that incorporates: synchronisation of movement and breath in an energetic and calming sequence of poses, and a short guided relaxation with occasional meditation.

Yoga Flow - Monday 7am (On-Line only), Wednesday 7am (On-Line only), Wednesday 7.30pm (60mins, in-studio only) and Saturday 6pm - 60 mins, in-studio only)

Join Andrea for this fast-paced, free-flowing practice where you’ll move from one pose to the next, working your whole body and most importantly challenging your mind.  The pace will help you deepen your stretches and working on your focus will help you reclaim some headspace.  It works your heart and lungs, and improves your range of movement.  This is an Intermediate class so a good level of fitness is required and expect to work hard.  Note that Saturday's class alternates between Andrea and Giacomo teaching.

TGIF Early Mens Naked Yoga - Friday 7am (on-line only) - 45 mins

Join Stefan every friday morning for this beginner friendly start to your day. Besides gratitude for the end of the week, TGIF here stands for Tai Chi Goodness Inspired Flow! Stefan works with gentle Tai Chi moves to promote grounding and balance, weaving in natural visualisations for an intuitive connected yoga class. No previous experience required.

Weekend Warriors - Sunday 10.30am - 75mins

This class showcases a selection of your favourite BSY teachers on rotation, and the occasional very special guest teacher! It's a celebration of our international on-line and local London in-studio naked yoga family with students joining from all over the globe.  Each week will be led by one of our amazing teachers, and depending on who's teaching you'll taste a different flavour of yoga, with each bringing his own ideas, strengths, and unique teaching style to the class.

Naked Yin Yoga - Sunday 6pm (On-Line only) - 60mins

In Gérard's Yin Yoga class most of the poses are performed sat or lying down and will be maintained between 3 and 5 minutes to provide a profound relaxation of the deep tissues and connective tissues. This class will strongly connect your breath, your mind and your body all together to release all the tensions in your muscles and help you to be more flexible and mobile.
