There's a certain uninhibited freedom that comes with working out in the nude. However, a Massachusetts man who's apparently well-versed in the meditative qualities of naked yoga quickly learned that clothing is required in all public gyms.
Eric Stagno, 34, joined the weekend warriors at a New Hampshire Planet Fitness on Sunday. But instead of dawning his Lululemons and hitting the elliptical, Stagno took his clothes off and practiced yoga in front of the mirror, reports the Boston Globe. Captain Brett Morgan of the Plaistow, New Hampshire Police recounted Stagno's exuberant day at the gym to reporters, saying:
“He walked into the gym, stripped down at the door, then proceeded to walk back and forth a couple of times before settling in on the yoga mats... When officers arrived, they found him there, completely nude: on his knees in a yoga-type position."
Stagno was charged with indecent exposure/lewdness and disorderly conduct. He's expected to appear in court on September 21, although his body is expected to be clothed as he stands before the law.
