Nude yoga

Lets get naked

megNude yoga in it's true sense is a very legitimate and effective yoga practice. It's real purpose has nothing to do with sex and eroticism, but as nude yoga is flourishing, I would like to help shed some light and clear any misunderstandings on this radical, but valid approach to yoga.

Naked yoga in general belongs to a particular sect of Yogis, who have practised this method for many thousands of years now in India. They are called Naga Sadhus and this title describes well the philosophy and thinking that is central in their approach to yoga and spirituality. The word Naga means naked, and the word Sadhu implies one who has renounced the world completely.

The Naga Sadhus travel between holy places and ashrams where they devote themselves to the discovery of their True Divine Nature. While there are esoteric and symbolic meanings behind what is means to be a naked yogi, practising yoga naked in your own home or class is a little different.

The idea of practising yoga naked is to eliminate the distraction of clothing on the body and to give the body greater sensory access to the atmosphere. On a practical level this helps develop true sense perception within all the yoga practices..

    Hello all, the closest most people ever get to nude yoga is looking at all the photos of pretty girls splashed across the Internet which makes me wonder if this is actually degrading yoga or celebrating the human body as art?
    Many people argue that seeing the naked body is a sin and morally wrong yet like I read in some other article perhaps on the site that if God really had such a twisted sense of humour to be born naked and then have to cover-up such a god really needs to be institutionalised. Of course the human body has been glorified in art for tens of thousands of years so why not continue that tradition although some think that because we can now create truly lifelike imitations of the human form, it’s too close to the real thing.
    I can’t really decide if it trivialises yoga or not, certainly the pose in this image is extremely challenging and in example of mental and physical harmony.
    I must admit that I perform my yoga exercises clothes three in the privacy of my own home although I won’t be sharing any photo’s because a practice is about me.
