Naked Yoga Alliance
The word “Asana” refers to the physical poses within the practice of yoga. “Exposed” – the story and body and soul of the indivudal.
When we tell our stories, they become the stories of the collective. When we dare share our bodies from a place free of shame, there is a part of struggle of the human relationship to being in a body that is healed, a part that is transformed, a part that is celebrated.
NAKED YOGA ALLIANCE BLOG
When this project began is was conceived as a photo book, but the project outgrew the book and those from all over the world sent in pictures and shared stories of their experiences with naked yoga and the project became a global movement uniting those who desire to practice yoga in the nude. I came back to the physical body and the practice of yoga both as my entry point into my own personal transformation and the collective transformation I saw it bring to others. Deeply transformed by my own experience in the naked yoga practice, I spent several years interviewing those who found their way to my naked yoga classes with interesting stories of how they arrived there and what brought them to the practice. Beyond that, as my own offerings and interests expanded beyond the naked yoga community, I became fascinated with the stories of peoples bodies, particularly those who practiced and celebrated a form of conscious nudity as a holistic form of self-expression. I sought to find out why they were attracted to conscious nudity, what it offered their own personal transformation and how it brought them closer to their own body spirit union. To be naked is to stand in a place of spiritual vulnerability and to be transformed by it. In a practice of conscious nudity, we must meet and examine our whole self and also these bodies that we have been given, or, if you rather, that we have chosen. This inquiry brings us to examine the body / soul relationship and the struggles and joys of living in a body and transcending, for the most part, body negative society.
If you have a unique story to tell that has involved transforming and celebrating your body through the practice of naked yoga write it up and email me. Pictures are encouraaged!
