Frequently Asked Questions
There is a sense of liberty in being nude, a sense of freedom.
The focus of each yoganu class is yoga; getting in touch with your own body, connecting with the breath, working on physical strength and flexibility, calming the mind. Being naked adds a sensual charge to the atmosphere of the sessions. At yoganu we acknowledge our sexuality as a driving force in both our lives and the development of our spirituality. Primal sexual/sensual energy is used as an integral part of each class.
Accept your sexuality, your sexual drive, harness it and use it to enhance your life.
What happens if I get an erection?
If you get an erection in class it is not a problem, it happens from time to time. Some men get visibly aroused in class and some don't. Hard or soft, there is no judgement or cause for embarrassment. The class will help you to channel all your energy, and this can have amazing results.
Spirituality and sexuality don't mix!
Sexuality is a key driving force in our lives. Yoganu acknowledges our sexuality as powerful, something to be celebrated, something that can help, not hinder our spiritual development.
There are lots of people who believe our sexuality should be denied, both Catholics and some yogis are amongst these people. Others believe that a true expression of our sexuality, especially as gay men, does not allow us to explore our spirituality. What if you can integrate the two, using your sexuality to have a fuller and deeper experience of ourselves? There is no right or wrong here, there is just your own personal experience, and therefore only you can decide. Yoganu offers a wonderful opportunity for exploring how this integration could work for you personally.
This is just another excuse for you and other gay men to get it off together!
There is no shortage of places for gay men to have sex, this environment offers something different. It is a place where men can safely and securely explore their own personal relationship with their bodies, their minds and look at their sexuality as part of their overall make up. It offers an opportunity for gay men to explore relating to each other in a new and radically different way.
Who is Yoganu geared towards?
Yoganu offers a range of classes from Beginner to Advanced and is therefore geared towards ALL men. It is not restricted by sexual preference, age, race or belief.
