WEDNESDAYS in OLD PORT MONTREAL
Do I sign up for each class? I can’t find the address:
Kat would like to know how many people are coming to class so no one is left outside in the snow. When you sign up, the address for that class will be given in the reply email. Sometimes the location changes, or class needs to be canceled, it’s much easier to update with email. The room hold a limited number of people, if class is full, you will be notified.
What to Bring:
One or Two Towels
Do I need a blanket?
It’s optional, but feels nice to wrap up for final resting part of class. If you don’t have a yoga mat, you can use a blanket.
Do I need a yoga mat?
OLD PORT: Bring one if you own one, otherwise one or two towels will suffice.
ST. LAURENT: Bring your own mat, this studio has none.
How hard is the class?
It can be as easy as you like, everything is optional. If you have lots of yoga experience, there will be intermediate and advanced options available. The average Naked Yoga student has previously done 1-6 yoga classes. Average age is about 40, but there have been students from ages 18-75 in this class. It really is for anyone.
I’m not flexible.
This is the most common concern for new students. Absolutely no problem, each part of the class is to gently open the muscles and create more flexibility. Rest assured your current range of motion is not an issue: everyone has to start somewhere. The more inflexible your body is today, the easier it will be to change. Keep a positive mind set and be ready to notice a difference.
How many ladies usually come to class?
Somehow, only men seem to be curious about the other attendees. Class is very much self-focused and your progress has nothing to do with how many other students attend, nor their gender. This class is comfortably in the dark, with the idea of being free from clothing. If you find yourself coming to naked class with the intent to stare at other students, you will be asked to leave. Underwear are allowed for feminine hygiene reasons, otherwise please expect to be naked for class. ALL genders are welcome to class, not just males and females. If you are found to be leering at other students you will be asked to leave.
Will everyone see my naked parts?
The lights are off, with a bit of natural light from the windows. Evening classes are dark with candles. Class is designed to avoid embarrassing positions. You can always sit down, cover up with your towel, and join again when you feel ready to continue. My class has a chill vibe and I will not tolerate negative comments. I teach from a mindset of Positive Body Image.
Can you describe the set up for the OLD PORT location?
It’s in a loft space, just keep your bag with you, close to your mat, there are no lockers. We wait until everyone has their mat down, we turn off the lights, and get naked. Just keep your clothes in a little pile next to you. At the end of class there’s a few minutes to get dressed before the lights come on.
We have a place for shoes and jackets at the entrance. You can wear a towel to the bathroom, you can use it while we have clothes on, you can go naked in the dark, it’s pretty easy going.
What if I get a “boner”?
This is pretty normal and generally the feeling will pass. If you have naked parts with a mind of their own, simply sit down cover up with your extra towel and join again when ready 🙂
As per the only rule no one is allowed to comment on your body. If you would like to carry on doing the postures with your erection, go for it. Just stay focused on the yoga and everything is fine.
Is there any sex or contact with others?
No, this is a yoga class. Keep your hands to yourself.
Can I request a class at a certain date or time?
Requests will be accepted again in the future. The current schedule is based on past requests.
Is there class with clothing?
Yoga with clothes here
What if I have an injury?
Check with your doctor first! Many people come to yoga to help with ongoing chronic pain. Please tell Kat about your injury so she can make appropriate suggestions throughout the class.
The exercises are designed to heal the body. General inflexibility is normal, ongoing pain from a recent broken arm or knee surgery is something worth mentioning. If you have ever had any major surgery, severe whiplash, concussion, or dislocated shoulder, please mention your history before starting class.
Is there a code of conduct?
Yes, members are advised to read, and translate if needed the rules established by the FQN. all classes will follow these same principles. https://fqn.qc.ca/FQN_Code_de_conduite_2015_07_17.pdf
