Naked yoga has been around a while, but we never found it appealing—that is, until The Gentlewoman worked its usual magic and made it seem like maybe Lululemon was on to something with those see-through pants. We're still probably not ready to hit up the delightful co-ed, no-clothes, gluten-free hot Ashtanga classes we keep hearing about, but doing The Plow au naturel in the comfort of your hardwood-floored, polar-bear-skin rug-appointed, Danish Modern apartment does seem a lot more "ahhhhhhhhh!" than "AUGH!"

Would you try naked yoga? Have you tried naked yoga (if so, do tell!)? Does this editorial also sorta-kinda make you want to do it... or maybe just move to Copenhagen?

    Agreed! I thought the very same thing. I wasn't struck so much by the idea of naked yoga than that a naked model could still look so ~fashion~ without, well, clothes! Ha!

    You know what, if my floors were that clean clothing would always be kind of optional.

    It really depends on the poses you're doing. I sometimes need a little friction from clothing to stop me from sliding around once I get sweaty, and the idea of putting my bare ass on a kinda-gross yoga mat makes me supremely uncomfortable. That said, stretching nakie in your own home is glorious.

    I've done naked yoga for years... At home, alone. After years of getting irritated with my clothes for moving ways I didn't want (even though I was alone) one blistering Southern California day I decided to strip down & enjoy the heat. Since then, temperature permitting, I've done naked or underwear yoga, alone, and happily.

    i guess wearing sandals with socks you feel even more free

    Curiosity is what makes me want to try it. If I ever find naked yoga classes near my place I'll sign up. If I like it or not depends on my first session.
