More about Thursday Evening with Will

Focus of this class:

Thursday evenings 90-minute naked yoga class provides the opportunity to simultaneously experience vulnerability while developing strength, flexibility and focus through asana (postural) and pranayama (breathing) practice.  

Intended towards students of intermediate ability, first-timers and beginners are encouraged and welcomed.  

Benefit of this class:

Results develop through the series season and 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:

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.  

    Why we practice together while naked:

    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 practicing while naked will be

    ever-changing and a chance for discovery.

    Thursday Evening

    Modern Yoga

    for the Male Body

    "Will has developed the Thursday evening Naked Yoga practice for men at the Awaken Studio, for the past 4 years. Will first attended the Naked Yoga classes as a participant, the relationship to the studio developed as Will developed as a teacher.

    Four years ago Will began to teach this new class. Will has brought his enthusiasm and smiling countenance to the Thursday evening practice. Will brings his gifts of communication and energetic awareness to the men who attend. It is a pleasure to see Will inspire the men as they explore their practice with vulnerability and clear focus."
