So you have heard of naked Yoga and it's popularity is growing but what do you think of naked Pilates?
We have been looking around and it seems that there are valid arguments for doing both Yoga and
Pilates naked. Some articles we have seen have said that it means a better, freeing connection to the
movements at hand. Also it's liberating, allowing you to get over the insecurities of our own body. Some
of the common comments are that you can't cheat when you’re naked.There is no way to cheat when it
comes to connecting to your core or the movements in the exercises when the instructor can see it all.
There seems to be a connection to yourself, you can connect mind and body when there is nothing
restricting you. Last naked Yoga and Pilates has been described as symbolic to renouncing
materialism that can engulf us these days. Nakedness it seems can be a means to letting go and
reaching enlightenment. It all seems to make since and we might just jump on board this freeing,
liberating, confidence boosting ride. Some of the oppositions to naked yoga and naked Pilates are the
injury factor. Many people seemed to be concerned with certain areas bouncing around or getting
"caught". Also manypeople were concerned with being bashful, some comments included the fact that
people couldn't exercise in just a sports bra let alone with nothing on.
Naked Yoga and Pilates seems to be catching on with men more than women as they seem to have
less insecurity about their bodies. Who knows if this is here to stay but for now there are retreats
devoted entirely to naked Yoga and Pilates and classes in larger cities have caught on.
Below are some links to naked Yoga and Pilates articles...
We haven't decided yet if naked is the way to go but a little Panty Pilates ™ might be just as fun! Let us know what you think!
