Truth or Bare: What I Learned About Myself from Trying Naked Yoga | Healthy Living – Yahoo! Shine

“Take off your clothes in whatever way feels most comfortable,” Cindee announced, as she proceeded to lose her Lycra. Unable to think of a single way to undress that felt “comfortable,” I stripped as fast as possible. The most nerve-wracking part: removing my underwear. Until then I could pretend I was in a bikini. I saw boxers and briefs hit the guys’ mats beside me as I dropped my panties. And just like that, I was standing in a class with a bunch of naked strangers. I could feel my future 80-year-old self turning bright red. I was waiting for the ogling to begin, but the conversations around me turned to…the weather. Yes, as in, “Boy, feels like it’s 100 degrees out there.”

I was already counting the minutes until this would be over when Cindee started us off with a seated position. A cross-legged seated position! She asked us to go around the room introducing ourselves and say why we had come here. I think I said something about wanting to embrace my flaws, but the whole time I was praying I would sink through my yoga mat and disappear.
