Join us for Naked Yoga & Breathwork! Candice will lead the class through a few inward and outward (community building) connection practices, followed by a vinyasa flow sequence to ground us in our bodies. We will then move deeper into the breathwork, ending with a restorative Savasana. A few minutes to share as a community any feelings or experiences at the end will be welcome. Group participation is not required, just available if it feels right for you.
Breathwork can be a natural way to shift our consciousness and go deeper into our inner selves for awareness and healing. The breathwork portion of class can illicit all kinds of powerful experiences, emotions, sensations and possible revelations, though having a mild experience is also common. All of you is welcome!
We will have our usual snacks & social time afterwards. This class is for all levels, with appropriate modifications offered for anyone who needs or wants them. Mats and towels are provided. Exact entry instructions will be sent by email with ticket confirmation. If you do not see the email, please email email@example.com for access instructions. Doors will open at 7:20 and close at 7:40. If you are late you will not be allowed entry. Bring a snack to share if you like!

Candice is a yoga teacher and healer from Texas living and thriving in NYC. With over a decade of teaching and practicing yoga, she is still constantly humbled by the remarkable teachings, insights and delights yoga and body awareness practices can bring. She is a 300+hr trained yoga teacher, 600 hr Yoga Therapist and Certified Sexological Bodyworker. She has taught Ashtanga-inspired Vinyasa, Prenatal and Postnatal styles. Yoga ultimately led her to discover Tantra, which inspired her to create her own modality, Naked Yoga Therapy. Naked means more than nudity to her; it’s a way to embrace vulnerability, honesty and living more from one’s core values. A textile free yoga practice can illuminate and allow freedom from shame in our bodies, allowing us to access more body confidence and can bring us closer and more connected to our shared humanity, recognizing how we are more similar than different.
Just Naked’s Principles - PVC
Participation: We ask that you are fully engaged at our events. Yes, getting naked is an experience in and of itself, but please arrive with curiosity and the energy to participate in the theme of the event. Another facet of participation is arriving with a clear mind. While responsible BYOB is sometimes allowed, visible intoxication is not.
Vulnerability: This Principle arose from the need to clarify the subjectivity of being naked. A woman going topless publicly, however legal it might be, is likely to arouse a negative response from most crowds. For this reason, we accept that a woman’s edge of vulnerability might mean keeping their bottoms on at our events. For men, we invite you to discover your edge of vulnerability in other ways. Perhaps you cross your arms during conversation? Uncross your arms to feel what that’s like. Maybe you’re afraid of looking stupid when you dance? Attend our Movement and Connection event to explore that fear and move beyond it. If you do not identify with the male or female archetypes, or are transitioning gender, please do whatever suits your needs. Our Builders are knowledgeable about these experiences and eager to help you.
Cohesion: For Just Naked, Cohesion means connecting with others in the spirit of openness and respect. When we do this collectively, we create social unity. In this unity, we are most effective at normalizing naked within the local and global communities. Respect means treating others how they would like to be treated. This may be difficult to intuit, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with our full FAQ.
Erections: Men, if you feel yourself getting an erection, please know that this is a very normal bodily function; however, we are trying to uncouple and distinguish the difference between nudity and explicit sexuality (and yes, it's possible!). We ask that you become aware of your arousal, take a moment to yourself to celebrate the fact you are human and then to please excuse yourself until your fire cools. We don't want to shame any erections, but want to be respectful to others in the group.
