Everyone already knows the benefits of yoga. One great thing about yoga is that you can practice it at home. Practicing yoga in the morning is the best way to start your day. However, there are times when you don’t feel like doing it. You don’t want to change into your yoga outfit and do some stretching. One way to keep yourself motivated is not to change into your workout outfit, but instead, strip down to your birthday suit and practice naked yoga.
Naked yoga is practicing yoga in your most natural and pure state. It will awaken your spirit and honor your inner god or goddess. Below are some reasons why you should take off your clothes and practice some yoga poses today.
Improves Body Image
Everyone has a part of the body that they feel uncomfortable with. It might be wide hips, flat butt or breast. Men and women alike are insecure with their bodies, although the former are less vocal about it. For women, they feel most insecure after giving birth. They feel that their waists have a lot of stretch marks, breasts are no longer firm, and they have excess weight or skin.
These thoughts get subconsciously embedded into your brain. By practicing naked yoga, you will be able to accept yourself and all of your perceived flaws. You will start to appreciate the uniqueness of your body. After several sessions, you will be more comfortable with your body and will feel sexier than ever before. You will develop a healthy self-esteem through acceptance and self-love.
Free Yourself from Social Norms
Cultural norms and social conditioning is good in a lot of ways. However, there are restrictions that are based on what you have been taught is right and wrong. Well, stealing and killing are wrong, that is universal. But there are other norms that seem to be questionable and one of them is being naked. There’s no logical explanation as to why being naked is wrong. And if you want to do yoga in your birthday suit, then no one is stopping you from doing so.
Conquer Your Fear
A lot of people don’t want to be naked with other people in the room. The fear can cause some anxiety to build up. However, the first ten minutes of the naked yoga sessions are the hardest part of the experience. As you start to focus on your alignment and breathing, your anxiety and inhibitions begin to fade away. If you can fight your fear of being naked in public, then there’s nothing you can’t do.
Naked yoga helps you develop self-love, and focus on what really matters. Once you start to love yourself, the stress inside your body will be gone. It will be replaced by positivity, which will help improve your compassion to others. You will be less fearful, and be more positive in life than ever before.
