Celebrating Six Years of Naked Warrior Yoga: A Journey of Growth, Connection, and Joy


As I reflect on the past six years of leading Naked Warrior Yoga, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible journey we've embarked on together. From our humble beginnings in various LA studios in 2019 to the establishment of our very own studio in West Hollywood, it's been a remarkable adventure filled with growth, connection, and absolute joy.


Our journey began with a simple vision: to create a space where guys could explore yoga in its purest form, free from the constraints of clothing and liberated from shame, guilt, or judgement. We believed in the transformative power of yoga to heal both body and mind, and we knew that you wanted a spicy kick to your practice, so it gets a little sexy around here, too!


In January 2020, we took a significant step forward by hosting our first massage workshop—a testament to our commitment to holistic wellness and self-care. This workshop strengthened the sense of community among our members, as the lost language of simply touching and being touched became important parts of what we wanted to share.


Throughout the years, we've been incredibly fortunate to have a diverse and talented team of yoga teachers from around the world. From Chile to France, Canada to the US, each instructor has brought their unique perspective and expertise to our community, enriching our practice and fostering a culture of kindness and inclusivity.


When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, we faced unprecedented challenges. However, we refused to let adversity dim our spirits. Instead, we adapted by taking our classes online and offering affordable $5 sessions to support our community during these difficult times. Despite the physical distance, our virtual studio became a sanctuary—a place where we could come together, breathe, and find solace amidst the chaos, and check in daily or weekly with guys we'd befriended through it all.


And then, just as restrictions began to lift, we achieved a monumental milestone: the opening of our very own studio in West Hollywood. It was a moment of triumph and celebration—a testament to our resilience and determination. As we practiced together, wearing masks and nothing else, we reaffirmed our commitment to community, self-expression, and healing through practicing yoga together.


I don't want to leave out the unforgettable experiences we've shared in Costa Rica at the breathtaking Blue Osa Resort. These retreats have been a highlight of our journey, allowing us to connect with nature, deepen our practice, and forge lifelong friendships. We will be planning our return soon, and hope you can join us!

But our journey doesn't end here. In fact, it's only just beginning. We have exciting plans for the future, including collaborations with other men's groups and the launch of our very own teacher training program. We are committed to continuing our mission of empowering individuals through yoga, mindfulness, and self-discovery.


As we look ahead to the future, I am filled with optimism and excitement for what's to come. Together, we will continue to grow, evolve, and inspire one another on this beautiful journey. Thank you for being a part of this incredible community. Here's to many more years of growth, connection, and practicing with Naked Warrior everywhere.


Namaste Naked!

Naked at Home

Who thought that getting naked at home was going to be so fun? When the Covid-19 pandemic first started, we believed that shutting our studio doors for a month wasn't going to be that big of a deal. W

This is a journey. Most of us probably didn't start practicing yoga naked, but think about it: as a child, do you remember the feeling of running about without your clothes on, after a bath, feeling g
