We will have a few minutes at the close of the class for questions and feedback for the instructor and the studio

At the end of class, participants will dress and disassemble in an orderly way. We all miss the hugs and close physical interactions that we have been able to be blessed with in the past and we look forward to the time when we will be able to resume with these very pleasant intimacies. We look forward to the future.

We are very thankful for the men who practice together as we create a community offering compassion and kindness.

The door is locked at 10 minutes prior to the class start and latecomers are not admitted. 

Please ensure your cell phones and communication devices are turned off as you enter and not turned on until after you leave. 

Please be respectful of the space and the others that are sharing their practice with you.

More about Saturday Morning with JF

Focus of this class:

The Saturday morning class will provide a gentle and slow practice that will bring awareness to the body. The practice will incorporate movement and breath in order to move stagnant energies. In this morning experience the class will practice observation of body, mind and spirit to better know ourselves. 


This class is presented for all levels, all ages and body types. The focus of this class is towards feeling and leading the body into a posture that will provide knowledge of energy and energetic flow through the physical body as well as the mental body.

Benefit of this class:

Participants will take from the class a deeper sense of energies within the body and an awareness of how movement and breath can help to form a deeper unstanding of one's self and one's body.

Men will leave the class both, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated even restored.

Why we practice together as men:

The root of the word yoga itself comes from the sanskrit root yug=union.

I believe that as trees in the forest are connected sharing energy and power, the exact same sharing of energy and power happens when we practice together as men. The practice grows stronger and steadier as we practice as a group. 

Practising together is a great way of building a community around yourself. In this community you can find encouragement and support.

Our Yoga practices can be a time for yourself, where you can be yourself and be surrounded by other like-minded men. 

    Why we practice together while naked:

    The goal of practising naked is to accept ourselves: exactly as we are.

    Practising while being completely naked can help us become familiar and accepting of our naked self.

    Practicing naked is also a great way to work with acceptance in general.

    • acceptance of our strengths,
    • acceptantce of our weaknesses,
    • and also acceptance of "what is".


    A great mantra to practice, whilw naked can be

    • "there are no such things as imperfections, only differences" or
    • "everyone has beauty in them"
    Everyone's experience of practising while naked will be ever-changing and a chance for discovery.


    From JF

    Speaking of his Yoga Journey

    I came into yoga after a Pilates instructor invited me to one of her classes. I immediately fell in love with the practice and that connection between body and mind.

    After a few years of practising in the studio, I decided to deepen my practice and began a 200-hr yoga teacher training. Since then I have also completed a 40-h yin yoga training, as it beautifully combines the practice of yoga and meditation.

    The practice of yoga is a beautiful opportunity for being an eternal student, even as a teacher. The more you practice, the more you share, and the more you know about yourself. I love that yoga is for everybody, and for every type of body. Practicing Yoga offers a vibrant holistic way to really take care of yourself.
