Please note studio classes are suspended until further notice. Please join us online!
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 or calendar page. 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. 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 Flow, Ananda, or Pause as an introduction to our style.
Where is the studio located? I don't see the address on the website.
ONLINE ONLY: 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 studio address and to see the full schedule and certain other members only pages. When you sign up for a class, you will get an email with an address confirmation.
Do you have a teacher training program?
Due to Covid-19 concerns we are not currently holding a teacher training. However, if you are a teacher who is interested in joining our team, please let us know! We hope that we can have our program back soon!
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. Because we have members who join from all parts of the world, we also have a handy countdown timer at the top of every page letting you know when the next class starts. 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?
Short answer is No! We offer an occasional Tantra workshop where sexual energy is explored in personal, intimate, and also group settings. However, that energy is not built up to be released, but rather explored and delayed, through Tantric practices and fun exercises. All of our classes at NWY are meant to be sensual, and we explore touch through our partnering yoga poses. We stress that our emphasis is on providing a safe space for all to explore the power of yoga through community and personal expression. We hope that members connect, and what happens after class is none of our business!
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.
