OK, well, let's see as a 55 year old guy - Downward Dog, Upward Dog, Cobra -

Ouch!  There is a reason for pants, ESPECIALLY during strenous activity.

idk...depends on the 55yo ;)

When you look around the room 99% percent of what you see will not be something you want to see.

 ^hilarious^  (you made me snort) -  and soooo true

There's nothing wrong with being naked.  I don't get what the big deal is.  Sure, ya, maybe it would be awkward if you sprung an erection in the middle of class, but that's understandable.

If it was up to me anyone could be naked anytime and anywhere they wanted with no legal repercussions.  The argument that some people are "ugly" is absurd.  Some people have ugly faces, we don't make them wear paper bags over their heads.  Really all the arguments are pretty weak (at best).

If you don't like wearing clothes and you like yoga, it sounds like a good deal.

sexay... i wouldnt be able to focus. id find the erection very distracting and would be compelled to stare at it. ;)

I was seriously thinking maybe it had something to do with the flow of energy, you know, on a more esoteric level, and then I saw it was from craigslist, so, scratch that.

I teach yoga. I love yoga. I love being naked. NO WAY do I want to teach a bunch of naked yoga people! OMG! One of my fellow instructors taught yoga at a nudist resort. She kept her clothes on but most everyone else was naked. She said you kind of got used to it but it wasn't really a pretty sight. She DID NOT make any adjustments!

I rather suspect that it's a combination of protection for both those naked and looking at those naked.

The last thing some poor 70+ year old dude really wants (in most cases) is some sweet young things laughing and pointing at the wrinkly bits that dangle as he's proudly display his assests which I'm sure are quite nice for his age.  Trust me, sweet young things when they pack together are not nearly as nice as they look.  Or some 20 year kid cringing as he sees 70+ sagging breasts after a few children.  **ages exaggerated for comparison purposes**

On the other side of the equation, you get some naive young lady who feels uncomfortable with the drool and lusful gazes of some old fart.  Or the whole cougar situation.

Clothes are protection for all in certain circumstances...naked yoga with strangers = emotionally fraught situation.

 I totally agree.

I do hope they won't  fart in the class LOL

Ew, ew, ew. I've been repressing this memory for 10 years and this thread just brought back this image of this guy when I was in university ... buck naked, demonstrating yoga poses because he thought I wanted to see him naked for some reason. Ewwww.

Good point, we need some legislation to make the single and double-baggers stop ruining the scenery.

and by double-bagging you are referring to the degree of ugly not uhm... never mind ;)

All I'm saying is "different strokes for different folks".  People like different lifestyles and activities and as long as they are not harming anyone I really don't see what the problem is. 

 

I take it the thread is simply to make fun of people for being different.  That I can understand, although I don't think naked people are funny.  I can also understand the concept of aversion to something ugly, I get that when I look at some people's faces.  The thing is, I don't think laughing at someone for not having a 20 year old athlete's body and shaming them for it, is a good thing to do.  In fact, it's an **** thing to do.

Das, I think I like you. I agree with this. I look at various parts of various bodies at work all day (at the hospitals) and when you get over yourself and realize that not all nudity has to be sexual, and seeing people's nude bodies doesn't have to be sexual, it's no big deal. Just because something is not sexually appealing doesn't mean it's ugly. For that matter, just because someone IS sexually appealing doesn't mean they aren't ugly.

I imagine that's the way many Scandinavians feel, with the hot springs and such.
