"Body shame originates in our minds with our thoughts and perceptions. Neither our religion nor our culture makes us ashamed of our bodies, only our belief that we should be ashamed.

Naked Yoga

In the March 2011 issue of The Bulletin, I found an article about a the creation of a nude Hatha Yoga class in New Jersey. It doesn’t say whether or not the class was mixed gender but I get the impression it was since with was attended by members or Sky Farm and Rock Lodge. […]

Nude Suryanamaskar

I found this article through Nudiarist’s Google Reader feed: To ward off evil, BSY to do yoga in the buff?

This Times of India article presents the idea of doing suryanamaskar (Yoga Sun Salutation) as something scandalous and embarrassing which it isn’t. When practicing yoga at home, I often do Sun Salutations, and other yoga poses, […]

“In a yoga context, when you consider that we are all naked under the fabrics, under the clothes and the designer labels, it makes complete sense to remove them and get back to something more basic,” … “When you get a room full of people naked, there’s no status. I feel […]
