Brown University Now Offering Class in Nude Yoga

So what is it this time? Another professor getting naked during the middle of a lecture? A Princeton mom pimping out her son? Yale kids admitting to beastiality?

Something a little more tame: Naked yoga at Brown.

From the Huffington Post:

The “Nudity in the Upspace” week goes from Sept. 30 to Oct. 5 on the Ivy league campus in Providence, R.I. The organizers write on the Facebook page the week intends to confront stigmas about the naked body and open a space space for discussions on it, with “All bodies welcome!”

So what will go on at nudity week?

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, there will be a nude yoga class that promises to “stretch your body perhaps in ways that it hasn’t been stretched before.” Organizers will provide mats, but ask attendees to bring a towel.

There will be nude cabaret, nude open mic night, nude body painting, personal testimonies about nudity and a panel on how issues like race and class intersect with nudity and body image.

All events will be held in the Production Workshop Upspace in one of the campus buildings. The organizers were clear to note on the Facebook page “absolutely no phones, camera, or bags will be allowed in the space.”


The best and the brightest.
