Yoga that gets you in your birthday suit
We bet you've tried at least one form of yoga that's been out of your comfort zone, and if it's got you to call yourself a daredevil, think again. People from across the world are trying the most strange yoga trend of all times that puts even the equally weird goat yoga and dog yoga to shame! Well, it's the naked yoga! [That's right!]
The naked yoga gets you sweaty, intimidated and [obviously] stripped! But despite these factors, this seemingly frightening yoga trend claims to have multiple health benefits. So, we thought, why not take a closer look?
What exactly is naked yoga?
Naked yoga is pretty much what you think it is. A naked yoga class essentially requires you to strip down in front of a room full of people — who do the same — and perform a myriad of asanas. It is considered a legit form of yoga workout that claims to boost your overall health and promote body positivity.
While many believe naked yoga has only recently taken the fitness industry and, well Instagram by storm, experts state it's been around in India for generations, by the name Nagna Yoga.
Here's what happens in a naked yoga class
As soon as you enter the class, you are required to disrobe COMPLETELY! Yes, we mean all the way ... exposed buttocks and all. Although, if you are uncomfortable, you have the option to keep your underpants on. In fact, some nude yoga classes allow you enough time to ease in and take off one piece of clothing with every pose.
Insider tip: Make sure you carefully select what underpants you'll be wearing. After all, it'll be on display in front of a room full of people.
