They say you teach what you need to learn most.
By teaching Nude Yoga I learnt how to accept myself more, love myself better, be vulnerable more often and step out of my comfort zone to grow.
And I am constantly honoured and humbled to be teaching this practice for other women to do the same.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Nude Yoga is purely a physical act of self love; being naked is completely natural, and practicing yoga brings you to an inner homeland of peace, calm, clarity and enlightenment. So in my mind, why not combine the two in a safe, candle-lit, toasty-warm setting with other women who want to do the same – shed the layers and love themselves fully?
It takes Self Love to another level.
I have overcome body image issues that haunted me for years (boobs are not big enough, thighs not skinny enough, not tall enough etc.) from my own Nude Yoga practice. And all this self acceptance magic happens on the mat when you witness that all women are exactly the same – damn beautiful – and imperfectly perfect! You build an affinity with the women in the room, a deep appreciation for the divine feminine and for her beautiful curvaceous naked form. You build trust, confidence and reverence. It’s magic!
So as you know, I’m coming on an AUSTRALIAN NUDE YOGA TOUR so if you’re not booked in for a Nude Yoga class yet, jump on board while you can as I will only be touring once a year! All tickets can be purchased using this link here. Just choose your city, trust, commit and be the change. For some it’s no biggie, for others it’s life-changing.
Not for you? That’s OK too! I invite you to look at the reason why it’s not? Perhaps you need to do something you wouldn’t usually do. Hey, you might inspire other women to do the same…
And besides, what better way to celebrate my birthday today with my birthday-suit yoga photoshoot!?
So today I invite you to enjoy your birthday suit, just the way it is! If you feel called, post a celebratory (tasteful…i.e. one that does NOT get you banned) nude yoga photo on Instagram and tag me @rosie.rees with the hashtags:
