Naked Yoga..... Would You?

...and no, I don't mean in the privacy of your own living room, although I'm sure even that would inspire you to really get deeply and intimately in touch with yourself! I am talking about going to an actual public naked yoga class!



Naked yoga classes are a trend on the rise prompting many to shed their inhibitions (as well as their clothing), step into one of these bare bones yoga classes totally unabashed and just leave it all on the mat. Literally! ;)
Actresses like Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez are said to have been participants of this hot yoga trend (yeah, I bet you guys would have no problem attending THAT class!). However, I'm willing to bet that the naked yoga classes attended by most celebs are extremely private. Especially in this day and age of Youtube and Twitpics. But then again, where would you hide a camera? ;)

Those who partake say that they experience a freedom that they have never before experienced in an exercise class, as well as a unique connection with the inner self and a total unleashing of their deepest inhibitions. According to one participant who did a public naked yoga class "once you got over the initial shock of being naked in a room full of other naked people and just began to focus on the poses and the flow, it just felt so complete and natural.  I can truly say that after doing naked yoga, I have no fear whatsoever of doing anything". Well! That seals it! I will have to go and check this out!   From a distance. With binoculars! ;)

So, how about it? Would you have the nerve to participate in a naked yoga class? By the way, I don't know if they are gender specific or unisex, although I'm sure there are "women only" classes for sure.  There would have to be, seriously!  Otherwise, there would just be a bunch of guys getting into yoga for all the wrong reasons!

As for yourself, do you see how naked yoga could really be beneficial to those who take it, or does it seem like yet another useless trend? Do tell!

Notes From a Wannabe Wahm said...

Ha! I could barely focus on the article because I was so distracted by that picture!! I do believe I am blushing, and hysterically laughing here.
And no, never is my answer.

Acadia said...

That's why you can't return yoga mats.

NoWayNada!

That's not because I'm a huggable chubby either.

Some things just need to be left behind closed drawers.

Maybe with my wife! :P

smcopywrite said...

i dont know if i would try this in public but yes in the privacy of my own home.

Mike Golch said...

No,I would not do that even if I was in good shape.

Tammy said...

I asked the girls here where I work and we all just started laughing.

The Fitness Diva said...

Well, Tammy, we will not be having you or any of the girls from your office in one of our classes. There is absolutely NO laughing allowed! ;)

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

wow! Where can I sign up. lol

Russ said...

I am a bit out of shape and old(a Lot) but the idea appeals to me. As long as there were some more chubbies there.

nyc diamond district wedding bands said...

Well this is a weird opinion, but let them do it. I guess this should not just be a yoga class but a fear factor class as well. Just the thought of people glancing at you or even staring at you might be scary but I guess for most people it's a just a test!

William K Wallace said...

I wouldn't have a problem with participating in a naked yoga class if there were beautiful ladies all around me. If not the prospect of having a big sweaty hairy ass in my eye sight would probably make me throw up.

I bet Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez wouldn't be so keen if my neighbour who has the ass the size of bus and virtually every centimetre of his back and chest are covered in a thick mess of hair, he likes to walk around the with his top off, I think that would be a little bit too natural for them...

The Fitness Diva said...

Wow, William...thanks for the visual!

btw, glad he's your neighbor and not mine! I might have to move after a few of those topless eye assaults!

I would do it if I could select who else gets to be in the class! Haaa! ;)

Michelle said...

I just started teaching Yoga 6 weeks ago and I want to get my numbers up. Maybe I've stumbled across something here...

I Wanna be Fit said...

Not to sure I would...LOL!

African mango said...

I certainly would not!
For the same reason I do not bathe naked on the beach, and it's *not* my inhibitions & co.
It's just so damn impractical and unhygienic! Just imagine doing a pose like... or better, don't!

MrMould said...

Not even home alone with black miniblinds. And I'd have to say this is one of those trendy things that will hopefuly disappear and be forgotten about soon.

ManOverBoard.com said...

OH MY!!!! I will now have to find the opposite sex photos of these crazy naked yoga peeps :-)

Monica said...

No, I don't think I would, although I find it interesting that there are several celebrities who DO do it! I tried bikram yoga and that hot sweaty mess was gross enough, let alone naked public sweaty yoga. Yuck!

No way! I can understand that been naked can help with pore breathing, but public nudity is not for a yoga class; is for the beach. :D

Naked yoga... no I won't. It's like in Seinfeld: can be sexual :)))

Linda said...

Hopefully you bring your own yoga mat. I would never do it, i don't think i could watch. It has to kind of smell in there no?

Sara said...

Really your post is really very good and I appreciate it. It’s hard to sort the good from the bad sometimes, but I think you’ve nailed it. You write very well which is amazing. I really impressed by your post.

organic colouring said...

I heard for the time about naked yoga and I wonder whats the difference between naked yoga and with clothes yoga.Good post as provide information.

Michelle Fitzgerald said...

I definitely would not take this class. I teach yoga at a gym currently and I cannot imagine having to feel responsible for making participants feel comfortable while baring it all. Girls are insecure enough while seeing other women wear tight fitting clothes, yoga in the nude would only enhance these insecurities; something I would not want to be a part of.

custom items said...

Hi thefitnessdiva! I will search Google and look for someone who can teach me this naked yoga. I won't be naked in front of other but I will do it in my room without anyone else looking at me. Advance Happy nwe year and more power to
