And before you ask, no, it’s not a sex thing. As in any yoga class, the teacher might touch you in order to do things like correct your alignment so you avoid injury, but it won’t be sexual in any way. Neither will touching or other body contact between students. The studio also does its absolute best to create a safe environment for what it hopes to accomplish: Outside observers aren’t allowed; neither is photography; and your membership will be totally confidential. Anyone who violates the “no sexual touching” rule will be asked to leave and won’t be allowed back in the future. Oh, and dudes? Don’t worry about spontaneous erections; they’re totally normal and won’t get you thrown out. “It rarely happens,” the studio says in its FAQ, “but when it does, it’s okay and nothing to be embarrassed about. It will pass quickly. Erections happen for a lot of reasons and are not limited to sexual attraction.” Keep calm and yoga on.
