Stretch, shake, and sip your body into nirvana at our first Yoga, Jazz, and Cocktail event! Adam will lead an all-level vinyasa yoga class, perfect for anyone looking to undress and unwind after a long week. After the class, jazz enthusiasts will savor rare and classic vinyl cuts in two masterfully tuned and comfy listening rooms. Lea, our mixologue en residence, will craft select cocktails for those so inclined. Responsible BYOB is allowed, but please don’t get sloppy. No yoga mats are provided at this location, so please bring your own. You can purchase mats relatively cheap at most discount stores, or see this link if you prefer to order one online: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0727X3SX9/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_908TCbTKB4MKK

Meet the hosts:
About Lea: Léa is an hand-embroidery artist. She founded Just Naked after spending a summer at a nudist camp with her husband Adam. Before realizing her love of clothes-free living, she designed and hand-embroidered garments under the nom de plume Lele Vomi. She still loves embroidery as a craft, but is expanding her artistic capacities to include photography and watercolor. She enjoys working with artists to create content for Just Naked, crafting an aesthetic which reflect the gentle freedom of platonic nudity.
About Adam: Adam started Just Naked with the idea that city-dwellers might be open to experiencing nudity within the confines of their rat-infested metropoles. While he believes convening with nature is still the best way to do it, he understands that some people just can’t be convinced to subject their flesh to destructive UV rays and mosquitoes. He studied jazz music before moving to NYC to model in 2013. Teaching yoga and doing massage led him to understand how profoundly disconnected many people were from their bodies. He started teaching naked yoga in 2016, and considers Just Naked as an expansion of that endeavor. His goal is to offer folks an opportunity to shed their insecurities, piece by piece, as they do their clothes at Just Naked events.
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.
