Why naked yoga? This led to some complex observations. “It makes me sad that women tense up when thinking about getting naked,” Kries responded. That uncomfortable feeling is one I know well, and I eventually discovered that Kries knew it too. While thoughts of tension and sadness were not the answer I expected, they opened the door to a conversation in which words like “freedom,” “empowerment,” and “acceptance” rolled off her tongue. The discussion became less about nakedness and more about healing body shame through yoga—through a “revolution of compassion” where we feel good about being women, and we feel good about our bodies.
