What is Nekkid?
Nekkid is a radical, intersectional lifestyle brand inspiring the larger community towards radical self-acceptance, vulnerability and personal work. Using the mediums of yoga, clothing, and community events, we believe world peace starts with the healing of the individual. We assist in this process.
Nekkid was created out of our interest in the intersection of social justice and spirituality. With our yoga classes, we hope to offer tools for individuals to create a deeper understanding of self, with our community events our goal is to create safe space and educate on various social justice topics while the clothing is an opportunity to spread the good word.
