Check out the written article as well as the powerful audio interview included on the page, which includes feedback from several women in the class.
One of my favorite quotes from the audio interview:
“Everyone had such a respect for each other. We were all women, but we were all different ages and sizes. Everyone walked in there willing to be vulnerable. And when that happens, the energy in the space totally changes. You may feel scared, but you also feel safe and it’s a really really cool feeling.”
From the written article:
Naked yoga — where participants bare it all for their practice — is gaining traction in Kelowna, B.C., with classes aimed at helping women accept their bodies for what they are.
“The general overwhelming intention is to try to integrate the entire body to allow yourself to breathe in and become one and not reject different body parts because they are aesthetically not pleasing to you,” said instructor Suzie Doratti, who also works as a (clothed) real estate agent.
“You carry a lot of baggage and opinions about certain body parts and I think the smoothing over of all of those edges and allowing yourself to just feel like a complete being that’s vibrant in every cell and tissue and organ and accept all of it for what it is.”
