As any yogi knows, the art of yoga is meant to be about connecting with our bodies and finding inner quiet and strength. It also happens to be a great way to tone and lengthen muscles while giving us a good, all-around stretch. Well, what better way to do that than to do it in the nude?
Okay so we haven’t seen any full-on naked yoga classes just yet, but thanks to a woman known on social media as Nude Yoga Girl, the practice is starting to become more common with yoga lovers online. Since late 2015, Nude Yoga Girl has been posting tasteful and artistic shots of herself striking up classic yoga poses in the nude, and they’re pretty much the epitome of gorgeous.
To be fair, the woman’s a model and sells her art online — so of course they’re amazing. But her photos have started inspiring others to embrace their own bodies and to share pictures of themselves doing naked yoga with the hashtag #NYGyoga, and we love how powerful, real and raw they feel.
