Did you say you lacked motivation to go for a Yoga class.
No, a San Francisco community center is offering naked yoga, where bare essentials means just that: Men and women are completely nude during the 90- minute class.
If you think, it is all about ogling, here is some news for you
The class is about the challenge of yoga, and about the challenge of accepting — and even revering — one’s own body. “It’s not a sexual experience,” said Rob Kandell, the center’s business manager. “It’s a heart-opening experience.”
I don’t know if you want your “heart” to open in a Yoga class where women outnumber men. But then
new Carl’s Jr ad and many people who were distracted by self-consciousness crashed the website. If you have a monkey mind and want to bring it to focus, if naked yoga cannot help, then nothing else can.
“As we begin to disrobe, start to notice how you clothe this temple, this body, this thing you own, your home,” Medland said. “As you take off your clothes, there’s a level of precision, of consciousness, in the way you fold your clothes. We’re honoring the preciousness, the sacredness, the delicateness of the body.”
The first movements involved stretching arms above the head. Medland, as naked as the rest of the class, faced the group, arms over her head, her patter providing a point of focus for any student distracted by self- consciousness.
