Topless Yoga Comes to Los Angeles

Starting Jan. 20, a weekly candlelit Free the Nipple Yoga class will take place in a downtown Los Angeles studio loft.

Participants interested in the topless yoga classes at Astroetic Studios should bring a mat, water, a towel and bottoms, although a top is “optional,” according to the studio’s Facebook page.

The creators of the bare-breasted yoga class describe themselves as “a community committed to uplifting others & dismantling the patriarchy” using “radical acceptance, body positivity [and] gender equality.”

According to LAist, the first class will feature a two for $30 special, which allows a person to bring a friend. Otherwise, It’s $20 per person, per class.

The bare-breasted yoga class is an extension of a the Free the Nipple movement, which seeks to equalize men and women by taking one of the clearest anatomical differences between the two and minimizing it in the service of “equality”. The movement is an attempt to fight against the “sexualization” of women’s breasts.

Hollywood’s Rumer Willis is also a member of the #FreeTheNipple campaign.
