There's No Place Like OM

When a nudist group first approached yoga-studio owner Buck Harris about a flesh-friendly class, he wasn't enthusiastic. Who can reach nirvana with all those body parts flying around? But he soon discovered that the all-male lesson was his most popular class.

"Our clothes really are sort of our armor. Shedding them makes you feel more vulnerable -- and perhaps closer to your inner Zen.
