Nude Yoga

Nude Yoga As mentioned in previous sections, Yoga is the union of body, mind, and spirit. This five-thousand-year old practice is believed to provide inner peace, increased body awareness, strength, flexibility, and other health benefits.

Practitioners should have enough knowledge and understanding of the various Yoga principles. They should keep in mind that Yoga is a serious discipline. Also considered as a philosophy in life, the goal of Yoga is to achieve balance between mind and body.

Yoga involves an overwhelming number of forms, styles, exercises, and poses. Each has its own unique features and benefits. One form of Yoga that has received comments and criticisms and has been involved in controversies is Nude Yoga, also known
as Naked Yoga or Nudist Yoga .

In its simplest form, Nude Yoga is the practice of Yoga without wearing any form of clothing. In general, a nudist setting is the main difference of Nude Yoga from other styles. Its objective is to enable you to feel free in your body and to do the poses and exercises without restrictions brought about by Yoga clothes. This poses a new challenge for Yogis, since the concept of practicing Yoga while being naked is hard to grasp for most people, let alone do Yoga in a class with other nude Yogis. It can be really distracting. Worse thing is the fact that the discomfort may hinder you from getting or feeling the essence of Yoga practice.

However, this should not be the case. Yogis should bear in mind that Nude Yoga is meant to unite the body, mind, and soul. This should not be a sexual experience. Moreover, this is not a Yoga practice for voyeurs, or people who enjoy observing or looking at sex organs of others.

The important thing about Nude Yoga is its principle. It is doing Yoga poses and exercises with freedom from restrictions of clothing. Understanding and accepting this concept can greatly help people in joining a Nude Yoga class without the feeling of discomfort or self-consciousness.

During ancient time Yogi People used to live in the forest in the cave of mountain without cloths and some times without food, water and air (during Samadhi). Still to day some Yogis are there living the same life and they avoid the area where the general people live or move around. They have a full control over five sense organs and Six-enemies. I'm really surprised to know that in modern city life people are also practicing Yoga without cloth may be they also have control over all those, which the Yogis used to have.

Recently I tried hot yoga and found the physical and mental benefits to be extraordinary. I knew that yoga can relieve stress and build muscle tone and increase flexibility but I didn''t know that some of the postures can alleviate menopausal symptoms, balance hormones and improve sleep. The breathing techniques can even reduce hot flashes.
Good to know!

Nude yoga mean not increasing the sexual desire of the yogi. Its only the mean to join with the soul of the yogi, as clothes wearing is decrease the flexibility of the body. Without wearing clothes we can feel free of any tightness etc. in the body. It should totaly avoid to inspire the sex during the yoga.
