NUDE IS NORMAL!

What is Nude (or Naked) Yoga?

Nude or naked yoga is a sensual yoga practice that embraces the original definition of yoga, derived from the Sanskrit root “Yuj” (which means to join or unite), focusing on creating a stronger, more meaningful connection between a person’s (naked) body and a person’s sensual persona.

The true aim of nude yoga is to reach self-realization, where you are completely in touch with your body, your mind, and your sensuality.

What is Nude (or Naked) Yoga?

Nude or naked yoga is a sensual yoga practice that embraces the original definition of yoga, derived from the Sanskrit root “Yuj” (which means to join or unite), focusing on creating a stronger, more meaningful connection between a person’s (naked) body and a person’s sensual persona.

The true aim of nude yoga is to reach self-realization, where you are completely in touch with your body, your mind, and your sensuality.

Sensual yoga, tantric yoga, and nude/naked yoga are all ways to help you on your path to enlightenment. They are the physical side of yoga practice, ways to really get to know your body, how far you can push your flexibility and strength, and even make you more comfortable being naked either alone or with an instructor or partner.

Nude yoga or yoga for sensuality might seem new and trendy, but all of it was a part of a centuries old tradition. We might think that our ancestors were prudes, but they were not. Sex and sensuality was a part of their lives and yoga was entrenched and entwined in every aspect of life.

Like all yoga, the asanas or positions and vinyasa or flow of nude and erotic yoga predates even Christianity. Before our Western ideals of what couples’ intimacy could be, there was a cultures in the east that pursued sensual yoga flow. Sensual yoga practice has its roots in over 5,000 years of tradition.

What are some reasons to do nude yoga?

Nude yoga and sensual yoga can be different things. Sensual yoga can be done clothed, and nude yoga can be done without sex or sensuality in mind. There are many reasons to do nude yoga.

Empowerment through Nude Yoga

One is empowerment. Our Western culture equates nudity with sex and that is just not the case. We do many activities in the nude, and yoga should be one of them. As a practice that is all about the realization of the self and the connection to the world around us, our clothing could be getting in the way.

To move the way you need to in yoga, you need to feel comfortable and movable. And the yoga clothes on the market right now can be tight and restrictive. It’s true, some of the asanas require either bare skin or special fabric, which is why you should have the option of being able to do your practice without having anything get in the way or having to squeeze yourself into uncomfortable garb just to do something that human beings have been doing for millennia.

OMG. BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS. Yes Yoga for the lazy person. I was stretched turned and pulled to all the right directions. Controlled breathing and meditation removed the stress. I have been sedentary for months and this was a great beginning to get the body fixing again. The infrared lights and heat really helped. No pain then and feel great the next day. I can't wait to get back in there. The nude aspect is refreshing. One less thing to worry about. You are in a safe comfortable place. Namaste....

The only reason I have anything bad to say is this. On the way over I had a problem with my GPS and I was told I could call/text for help. I did find my way there and I liked the fact that I didn't lose time even though I was late. But I could've done without the vulgar words, hostile tone of voice, and condescension. I considered rescheduling and telling her to chill out but I didn't. Maybe I could've done better with following directions but I didn't think they were perfect. However once I was there it was all better and it was the good stuff I thought it would be.

I have been learning Yoga with Melissa for just about 2 years and it has transformed who I am as a person. Melissa is a perfect combination of Body Focus and Spiritual, and has taught me that a well-rounded yoga practice involves internal and external work. She is always very encouraging, and I do not think I have ever seen her without a smile on her face. She is an absolute true professional. Recently I have also started the Thai Yoga Therapy with Melissa and cannot speak more highly of that service. After 60 minutes I feel absolutely amazing. You do not realize how out of alignment you are from an energy perspective until after one of these sessions. I would highly recommend Melissa for both the Yoga and the Thai Yoga Therapy!
