Have you ever thought of doing naked yoga? It might be a little beyond your comfort zone, especially if you consider doing it in a room full of other naked yogis, but in the same time it can feel liberating. Just think how great it is when you sleep in the nude!
You might ask what’s the point of doing naked yoga? Is there an extra body-mind connection that you don’t understand? Is it sexual? Is there something that you’ve been missing out?
Here’s the catch: leaving aside the fact that it will make for a great story, naked yoga can be empowering, especially if you’re not feeling comfortable with your body but decide to do it anyway.
So, if the timing is right and you want to preserve this experience you might want to give it a try. After you’ll get over the initial buzz of nerves and all those crazy questions- “do I need to get a Brazilian?”, “does it matter what I wear?”, “will there be men as well?”- you will realise that naked yoga is a unique experience of freedom.
It’s a place where people of all genders, sexual orientations, shapes, sizes and colours join in a journey of self-discovery and compassion.
Naked yoga offers you the possibility to shed your clothes and celebrate body positivism, self-kindness and healing, leaving aside limited personal believes, insecurity, judgements about appearance or critical self-talk.
As long as there are boundaries and rules so nobody will touch you or adjust you without consent, no one is staring or cruising to find a date, you will be able to appreciate the wonderful weirdness of the moment.
Just imagine yourself naked in a room with naked strangers, having a unique experience that will help you love your body a little more.
Naked yoga is an experience that makes you feel alive and a chance to make your body the sexiest outfit that you own.
We know that your mind can race from feeling too self-conscious around a bunch of strangers to thinking how you’d be able to make a more complicated pose without wearing a sport bra but we promise that all of these worries will disappear as soon as you’ll take a deep breath and your mind off what is about to go down.
Focus on yourself, shed those insecurities and embrace acceptance. You’re in a safe environment in which many other people may feel just as nervous as you do.
You will never be able to evolve if you’re not pushing the boundaries a little more far every day, challenging yourself to leave your comfort zone. As long as you acknowledge your fear, your anxiety and nervousness, process them and let them out, you will feel liberated in a space that holds a sense of relaxation and inner peace.
Every time your mind is being distracted of what’s happening around, turn inward and focus on your breath. It’s true that most poses can make you feel vulnerable and exposed but in the same time they will make you strong and connected since there is a bunch of people in their most primal state, doing the same movement with you.
In that specific moment, nobody is a businessman, a model, a punk or an athlete. Without their clothes and makeup and all those boxes that help us fit in, they discover who they really are and this is where personal growth comes from.
Even if it can be a little nerve-racking at first, being naked in front of others will begin to feel like a second-nature when you push yourself out of your comfort zone. Most people feel free and move easier without clothing and most of them see this exercise as a very positive and enlightening experience.
At that moment you leave all those barriers, inhibitions and restrictions behind, you’ll find yourself in a safe, judgement-free space where you can express your true self, facing your vulnerabilities with a bold approach.
Naked yoga it’s a world for open-minded people who love themselves at their core with all their imperfections, learning to feel confident in their own skin.
Naked yoga is a sure way to become more grounded and to experience the freedom you were missing. It’s the perfect road for self-acceptance, especially for those who are struggling for years with anorexia, bulimia, cancer or other diseases that affect their body.
Naked yoga can free the world from body shame and remove the negative meaning of nudity. Because nudity doesn’t have to be sexual.
We recommend you’ll try it and who knows, you may not even want to put your clothes back on when you finish.
