Howdy! And Happy May Day from bright and sunny San Francisco!
I finished off my April by going to a performance by Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters. While I was there I met Benny Ninja, father of the House of Ninja, of America's Next Top Model fame. He taught me how to pose. What do you think?
And now it's May! I'm starting my May off by heading to New York City Wednesday. That means that I will only be available to massage Monday and Tuesday next week so if you're interested book now. I will be here to teach my classes Monday and Tuesday night. I will also be subbing a few classes this month. I will be teaching Men's Naked Yoga Saturday May 18 at 4:30pm at The Sun Room as well as Sunday May 19 at 6pm also at The Sun Room.
At the end of May I will be headed to Costa Rica to co-host a Men's Naked Yoga and Massage Retreat along with John Cottrell and Aaron Star. There is only 1 spot available at this time. If you are interested contact me and I will let you know if it is still available. Should I return to Costa Rica next year? Who's gonna come with me?
My Monday May 27 class will be cancelled as it is Memorial Day and the Center is closed. My Tuesday May 28 class in Oakland however will be covered by the amazing David Oliphant. If you haven't experienced his teaching now is your chance.
This year I have added 2 new California retreats to my offerings. July 18-22 I will in Palm Springs to lead a Men's Naked Yoga Retreat at the Triangle Inn. There are 3, 4, and 5 day options for this one. For more information go here. I will be staying in Palm Springs for a few extra days to give massages so even if you can't come to the retreat let me know if you need a rubdown.
From September 15 until the 20th I will be leading a Men's Naked Yoga Retreat in Yosemite at the Red Rooster Lodge. For more information and/or to register go here.
These retreats are in addition to my annual visits to Kalani Oceanside Retreat Center in Hawaii. Once August 12-18 with Ken Breniman. For more information and/or to register go here.
And then again to ring in the New Year with Paul Tucci. For more information and/or to register go here.

Have you been to my website lately? www.nakedyogabryanharrelson.com I have recently updated it and it includes a bathtub interview I did with The Accidental Bear. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9edIOQ-LA7k
I also added links to several other Naked Yoga Programs and Naturist Organizations.
If you know of any other programs or organizations that should be included let me know.
I have also recently discovered Men of Spirit.
What is Men of Spirit?
Men of Spirit is a website devoted to raising awareness of men’s gatherings in all parts of the country with a special nod to Asheville, NC. These gatherings focus on advancing personal growth, spirituality, sacred sexuality, the connection with Self, nature and other like-minded men. The Men of Spirit website is open to all spiritual paths and accepts none as the ultimate truth. Its purpose is to explore events, teachers, programs, schools and gatherings that create greater awareness of who and what we are. Aligning our lives with our deepest desires and our most authentic Self.
Men of Spirit will also explore spirit related travel to scared and intensely beautiful and powerful places on the planet. Travel that explores the experience and spiritual roots as humans over the millennia. Travel removes us from our everyday life and allows us time and space to learn about ourselves and others.
