Jude Phoenix

Nude yoga found me in 2013. After receiving my teaching certification I decided to teach private lessons. I had never even heard of nude yoga! But my male students started asking if I would be open to teaching that way. I politely said no for a few months, because the idea of teaching nude actually petrified me.

Now three years later, teaching nude is second nature to me. It has helped me to accept my body with more grace and gratitude. For the first time in my life I love my naked body. It has created a space to deal with anxiety and to heal old scars of sexual abuse and body shame through self-love and self-acceptance. It’s amazing to see the transformation of brotherhood and masculine beauty in every brave yogi that comes to my studio in Phoenix to practice.
