Do I have to be naked?
ONLINE ONLY: We ask you to participate naked, but you may wear shorts due to privacy concerns some may have at home.
Yes, that is what we are all about-freeing ourselves from the restrictive clothing that we wear as armor against the outside world. We celebrate our bodies, our abilities, and enjoy the unique benefits of practicing naked. With us, you are in a safe and judgement-free group.
How do I sign up for class?
You must first be a member. You can see the full schedule of classes from the homepage. Downloading our app is the easiest way. You can also click on the Book A Class tab from the menu bar in the desktop or mobile version. Choose the class you want to attend and select Book It. You will be asked to verify the date and time, and then select if you want to purchase a single class, a package deal, or the monthly membership. Confirm your payment, enter the coupon code if applicable, and then you will receive a confirmation email with the link for the class. Click this link at the time class is to begin (online students). You can also join a booked class, book multiple classes, cancel, or reschedule a class from your member portal (click on your name for the portal). Select Manage My Bookings.
Do I have to be good at yoga?
We are very welcoming to beginners. Even in our more challenging classes, our teachers provide variations for many levels. If you are not sure of your fitness level, we suggest you begin with Pause, Rise and Shine, or UPlift as an introduction to our styles.
What do I need to take class online?
You must have a working camera on a device such as a laptop (recommended) or mobile with internet connection. You must have Zoom installed to participate, and then once you book a class you will receive a confirmation email with the zoom link for the class. Every class will have a different link, so you will not be able to use an old link. You must be an approved member to view the full schedule and certain other members only pages.
Online or Studio? Live or Virtual Instructor? How do I know which I am signing up for?
Every class is described in detail from the menu Classes, and we encourage you to take your time reading them to find the right classes for you. We have a hybrid mixture to offer our global group of guys. Some are studio-only, and others are online-only, but the majority of them can be taken either way. We use the following symbols to help you identify quickly what classes are available:
And if you are joining us at the West Hollywood studio, you will either have a live or virtual instructor. If you have a virtual (on-screen but still in real time) instructor, there will also be another NWY instructor in the class for any questions, adjustments, etc. This info is always provided in the class description, and if you aren't sure, just ask us!
What timezone are the online classes posted in?
All classes will show up on your device for your local timezone, as long as that device is set for your location. Downloading our app is the best way to easily check out what's next.
What if I get an erection during class?
Our most asked question! Getting a hard-on when surrounded by other naked people is natural. There is no need to hide it-there is nowhere to do so anyway! We merely encourage all guys to focus that sexual energy into their yoga practice instead, and the rest of the class can take it as a compliment!
Is there a sexual element involved in class?
We offer a bi-weekly Tantra workshop where sexual energy is explored in personal, intimate, and also group settings. And we also offer the hybrid class The Multi-Orgasmic Man that explores sexuality through self-exploration and arousal techniques. Other offerings may be occasionally available as well. The majority of our weekly classes are simply practiced naked as a form of liberation and freedom, from clothing and restrictive beliefs. All of our classes at NWY can be sensual, and we explore touch. We stress that our emphasis is on providing a safe space for all to explore the power of yoga through community and personal expression.
What if I have a hard time paying for class?
Our monthly membership program is the most cost-effective way to join classes. We also provide package deals and hold at least one 'pay what you can' class every week. We also have limited volunteer opportunities for a reduced price per class. For others who find it hard to attend because of where they live or other financial difficulties, please feel free to speak to us privately, and we can discuss our scholarship program.
Talk to your doctor before beginning any physical activity. You practice with us at your own risk.
Refunds for a missed class must be requested within 24 hours after the class. No transfers. You can easily manage your classes, including booking, rescheduling, or canceling, from your member portal on this website or from the app.
