BOLD & NAKED is a New York-based adult yoga studio that allows students to practice in the buff. The studio generated controversy when it announced that its previously men's-only naked yoga class would be available in a co-ed format. It's hard to believe that a room full of naked, contorting bodies could be anything but sexual, but the studio's website assures us this couldn't be further from the truth.

The studio boasts a relaxed atmosphere and unpretentious experience. More than being naked for the sake of being naked, participating in naked yoga "is about being comfortable in your own skin and the amazing confidence that comes with it. It's about knowing, accepting and loving yourself at your core -- capable of anything and perfect as you are."

The studio aims to create an inclusive environment that is safe for all genders, sexualities, races and ethnicities.
