Yoga in the altogether?
Yes. If you wish. I’m just as happy to teach with clothes on or without.
One of the core concepts of yoga is self-acceptance. What better way to connect with, accept and even celebrate our own bodies than to be naked?
Many people find it very liberating to do yoga with no clothing, both psychologically and, because they don’t have to twitch at riding up hemlines or chafing seams, practically. Many have also suggested that the outfits produced by many of the fashionable yoga labels are just as sexually revealing and provocative as nakedness, if not more so.
What if I get turned on?
What if you sneeze or hiccup or blink? These are all natural things that our bodies do. Some forms of Budhism, which has strong links with yoga, recognise and celebrate our sexual drive as an important life force.
I’ve been attending naked yoga classes as long as I’ve been practicing yoga and I’ve never seen anything sexual develop. Another of yoga’s core concepts is (self) control. It’s one thing to enjoy a surge of sexual energy, it’s entirely another to turn it into a sexual action.
