FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have to be naked?
M.E.N. yoga classes (MENyasa, MENd, MoveMENt) are naked-only. We believe in the healing and empowering potential of practicing yoga fully removed of clothing for men, both as individuals and as a community. M.E.N. Yoga is committed to fostering a safe, private and judgement-free space and accepting environment.
M.E.N. fitness classes (FitMen, Bootycamp, MuscleBeach) are naked optional classes, where wearing athletic underwear or a jockstrap is considered acceptable attire.
Do I have to be good at yoga?
No! We love working with men who are brand new to yoga! Our instructors are trained to focus on alignment and safety, to provide modifications and options for men of varying skill sets, and to understand that yoga looks different in every body.
What if I get an erection during class?
Getting a boner when surrounded by other naked people is natural. M.E.N. Yoga is committed to fostering a body-positive environment that celebrates the male form and all its variations. If you get hard during class, there is no need to hide it or feel shame. If you experience feeling sexual energy during a class, we encourage you to focus it into your yoga practice or workout. We also recognize that not all male-identifying bodies have the same anatomy. M.E.N. Yoga is a committed safe and welcoming space to all men, including trans men.
Is there a sexual element involved in class?
No. While we fully encourage the safe and consensual exploration of men's sexuality, our classes at M.E.N. Yoga are are never sexual. We stress that our emphasis is on providing a safe space for all men to explore the healing and empowering potential of yoga and fitness through a community of men and individual male expression. We encourage our members to connect with their minds, bodies and community during class. We support safe and consensual cultivation of any connections between our men off the mat.
