Nude (yes naked!) yoga is becoming more popular these days. If you are they type of person who is comfortable in your birthday suit, then naked yoga might be just what you’re looking for:
Skyclad Yoga offers nude Vinyasa Flow yoga classes in Vancouver and Vancouver Island. Founded by Ron Stewart, this Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor with a 25 year dance career, has been practicing various styles of yoga since 1998. Couples classes, co-ed classes, and male-only classes are available through Skyclad Yoga – check their website for schedules. Practitioners should bring a yoga mat, water and a towel or light blanket.
Naked is natural. Face it, clothes get in the way! For those curious there is a unique freedom comparable to skinny-dipping. Skyclad Yoga allows the practitioner to better feel the subtler external and internal sensations and energies: air on skin, feet on floor, heart beating, engaged core, dropped shoulders, muscles stretch, releasing and breathing, the body expands into its kinesphere.
