Would You Do Yoga In The Nude?

THE NAKED CITY

NUDES FLASH: IN-BUFF STUFF IS HUGE!

By ADAM NICHOLS 

Welcome to Nude York City.

Some folks are stripping down to escape the scorching summer temperatures – but others aren’t waiting ’til they hit the area’s clothing-optional beaches.

The au naturel look is catching on at city restaurants, a Midtown yoga club and even a stand-up comedy joint.

“We’re just more comfortable nude,” said John Ordover, who rents city eateries for dinner parties with a strict dress code – no clothes allowed.

Vote: Would you do Yoga in the buff?

“We’re not out to shock or put on a public spectacle. We want only to do things that other people do in the way that we are most comfortable doing them. That, for us, is without clothes,” he said.

About 50 diners – whose motto is “no hot soup” – regularly turn up for Ordover’s monthly meals held at venues including the Mercantile Grill on Pearl Street and Pete’s Downtown in Brooklyn. 

“I had such a transformative experience on my own when I did yoga naked rather than clothed,” said Naked Yoga NYC teacher Isis Phoenix. “I wanted to share that.”

The classes have about 10 devotees who have to obey two rules – leave your clothes behind, and bring your own mat.
