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. Non Mixed Ability classes will be clearly labeled.

Some of our classes are Intermediate Level and require a higher 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.

Monday

17:30 Bare Yoga

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. 60 mins (In-Studio and On-Line)

19:00 Men's Naked Yoga

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. This class is often more more workshop style with Andy giving guidance on how to approach more interesting shapes.  This is an Intermediate class so a good level of fitness is required and expect to work hard. No prior experience is necessary, and the class is friendly and fun. 75 mins


Tuesday

15:00 Men's Naked Yoga

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 teaches a mixed hatha and flow style with clear easy instructions in layman's language (no sanskrit or chanting in these classes).  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. 75 mins


Wednesday

15:00 Smooth Yoga

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. Level One 75 mins

19:30 Yoga Flow

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. 60 mins


Thursday

15:00 Men's Naked Yoga (Smooth)

A gentle naked Hatha Yoga class taught at a slow pace. It’s a playful and welcoming class lead by Matthew  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. 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.  No prior experience is necessary, and the class is friendly and fun. Level One 75 mins

18:45 Men's Naked Yoga Flow & Chill

Join Marc for this class in two parts: the first 55 mins or so is a 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; this is followed at 19:45 by an optional 30 min guided Nidra mediation to deeply relax your body and empty your mind.  Yoga Nidra is a non-physical form of yoga, ancient in origin but extremely powerful in tackling modern stress. You’ll be talked down into a conscious ‘waking sleep’ from which you’ll emerge refreshed, rejuvenated and re-energised. There will be a short pause between the two sections and  you are welcome to join for first part only, the second part only, or both for the full experience! 90mins (On-Line only)


Friday

19:00 Men's Naked Yoga Partner Chill

Friday night is chillout night... join Matthew or one of BSYs other amazing teachers for a relaxing and playful class that incorporates partner poses (no need to bring a partner, your teacher will pair you up with suitable people for those poses) and held deep stretches to work out the tensions of the week and prepare you for the weekend. 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.  You'll explore mutual trust and shared responsibility as you work together with a second yogi, not just on making fun shapes and deepening your physical practice, but also on synchronising your mind and breathing.

Unlike many other 'partner' yoga classes, this session is not about touch and intimacy, and there will be no 'sensual' type exercises.  We respect everyone's boundaries, but we also respect the fact that erections happen and that's fine.  What's not fine is doing something with them and the only ground rule that's non negotiable in the session is that touching them, either your own or someone elses, is strictly off limits.  75 mins


Saturday

No naked classes today!


Sunday

10:30 Weekend Warriors

Our flagship and most popular class, 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. 75mins (on-line and in-studio)

16:00 every second Sunday each month - Partner Yoga Workshop

Join Matthew and Gérard and a select group of men for a workshop exploring sharing yoga with a second yogi. Note this is not couples yoga, so no need to bring your own partner, and you'll be working with everyone in the room at least once. You'll explore mutual trust and shared responsibility as you work together with a second yogi, not just on making fun shapes and deepening your physical practice, but also on synchronising your mind and breathing. 

Unlike many other 'partner' workshops, this session is not about touch and intimacy, and there will be no 'sensual' type exercises.  We respect everyone's boundaries, but we also respect the fact that erections happen and that's fine.  What's not fine is doing something with them and the only ground rule that's non negotiable in the session is that touching them, either your own or someone elses is strictly off limits. 120min


Ability Levels

Mixed Ability

Most of our classes are mixed ability, i.e. containing elements of Level One and Level Two classes. It's intentional that there will be some parts that challenge you and at first you may not be able to do, but this shows you where the next steps are on your yoga journey and demonstrate the importance of foundational shapes and techniques.

Gentle

A super gentle class, mostly floor based. Accessible stretching and breath-work, with no flowing or fast moving sequences.

Level One

An accessible class for all. Includes floorwork, standing postures, some balance. Breathwork may be included. There may be some limited slow flow.

Level Two/Intermediate

A stronger class, containing dynamic flowing sequences and more advanced postures. Expect to work up a sweat. Whilst you will receive less specific cuing, you do not need to be an experienced yogi to benefit.
