Intended towards students of intermediate ability, first-timers and beginners are encouraged and welcomed.
Benefit of this class:
Results develop through the season-session and may be observed in both the short-term and long-term. Props such as blocks and straps are used to advance postural interpretation. Each student is encouraged to move and develop at their own pace.
Why we practice together as men:
Why we practice together while naked:
The exclusivity of a men-only class provides a safe environment for men to explore their bodies and develop an awareness of the conversation within.
Practicing naked is:
- practical, clothing can be restraining,
- spiritual, the sacred tribal connection. and
- honest, no hiding anything here!
Naked students benefit from instruction that is more biomechanically aware.
While the class is naked, visually the instructor can assess students postures with more accuracy,
Students benefit from clearly seeing the instructor and other students as clear examples of the form of a posture.
Everyone's experience of practising while naked will be ever-changing and a chance for discovery.
