A cheeky new naked yoga trend is skirting YouTube's nudity guidelines with creators labelling the videos "educational".

In the last two months at least 20 videos of women practicing yoga in the nude have surfaced on YouTube, it has been found.

The explicit content is uploaded to accounts with channel names such as Naked Yoga School and Naked Yoga Club.

Naked Yoga has caused quite a stir on the site and on Twitter, with one person commenting: "Someone told me to search naked yoga on YouTube and I can't stop laughing."

Several others questioned how the nudity got past YouTube's very strict nudity and sexual content policies, reports Insider.

YouTube’s guidelines states: "Posting pornography may result in content removal or channel termination, explicit content meant to be sexually gratifying is not allowed on YouTube.

"Videos containing fetish content will be removed or age-restricted. In most cases, violent, graphic or humiliating fetishes are not allowed on YouTube."

The videos are uploaded to the website with simple titles related to the yoga practice, but often have explicit thumbnails.

In some cases, several thumbnails show close up photos of genitalia, or snapshots of actual porn films unrelated to naked yoga.

According to Insider, one of the videos on the website has a whopping 13million views.

The publication claims some of the channels appear to be fake, with other videos claiming the practice is secondary to nudity.

For example, Insider said one video had a watermark for an adult site and shows a young woman who bends over and slowly takes all her clothes off.
