Yoga is all about “union” with yourself and letting go of attachment to things, so what better way to do that than naked as we came?
It’s not a particularly new concept. In fact, Naked Yoga was an Academy Award nominee in the Best Short Documentary category in 1975.
More recently, the sprouting of nude yoga classes around the place was given a good dose of media coverage about four years ago.
It’s now been exposed again thanks to a Daily Mail article about nude yoga in New York (it’s also available in various studios around Australia).
“While many equate being naked with sex, this couldn’t be further from the truth in a naked yoga class. It’s about being comfortable in your own skin and the amazing confidence that comes with it,” the featured yoga studio says on their website.
“Practicing yoga naked frees you from negative feelings about your body and allows [you] to be more accepting and deeper connected with yourself and the world around you.”
