The idea of stripping while working out may be uncomfortable for many, but a a number of men in Edmonton are embracing it by signing up for naked yoga class. Chris McBain, the naked yoga instructor at Shanti yoga studios, offers a men's-only class which is the only one offered in downtown Edmonton. He says people are going back to their natural state and embracing nudity quite comfortably.
