Nude Yoga is a type of yoga without the restriction of yoga clothing. It is a powerful mind-body yoga that aims to develop personal freedom and comfort. Naked Yoga can be useful by separating the physical self-conscious from the concentration of the mind while performing Yoga Poses, or positions. Simple to follow, just undress and enjoy the benefit of Nude Yoga - freedom!
Nude yoga, or Naked Yoga, is simply yoga practice without the 'hinderance' of yoga clothing. With the same benefits of yoga that a traditional class offers, such as Muscular Strength and Endurance, Stamina, Mental Clarity and Balance; Nude Yoga offers a new light on yoga and self-awareness and comfort. Nude Yoga is not a practice built for voyeurs, but as a comfortable environment towards inner peace.
Yoga is a study within the mind and body to achieve greater concentration and self-awareness. Practicioners should be aware of what to expect in a traditional yoga class and comfortable performing basic yoga positions, or asana, before attempting a group instruction of Nude Yoga. Some people are uncomfortable with the idea of yoga practice while nude, but as the saying goes: Don't put it down until you've tried it!
Yoga postures and exercises in a setting with natural light and circulation can be one of the most liberating - and comfortable! - points within your yoga practice. Comfort with our body is not easily achieved in our Western mentality, but it is not an impossibility. Nude, or Naked, Yoga is not about controversy and criticism, but as a modality to find self-worth beyone the physical form and inner awareness. When practiced with a mirror, you will also be able to better understand the function of asana as you will have opportunity to broaden your perspective!
