Do I have to get naked?
Please note that it is a gentle facilitation and you're able to do so at your own pace, but it is a NAKED yoga workshop focused on body positivity that you're attending after all. What progress would we make in life if we didn't challenge ourselves and push the boundaries a little? Plus, you're in the privacy of a safe and honouring environment in which many of the other females may also be feeling just as nervous as you. Bring a friend along if that helps you to feel a little more comfortable.
We're here to support one another, and I will be sure to create a space in which only love and acceptance are harboured.
What if I've never been naked in public before?
Well let this be a first! It is such a perfect environment for it. It is a non-confrontational and non-sexual environment in which you will be surrounded by other females who may be in the same boat and experiencing similar emotions. It is completely normal to experience fear, nervousness and anxiety in the lead-up to attending, and this is all a part of the journey. Acknowledge your emotions, process them and let them go.
Being naked in front of others for the first time is always a little nerve-racking, but once you remove the layers, it'll begin to feel second-nature and you should begin to feel a little more comfortable as time goes on (perhaps link to an article about starting off being naked for the first time?). You may not even want to put your clothes back on once we're done!
The workshops are hosted in the evening, so it will be a candle-lit experience, providing for an ambient atmosphere that holds a sense of relaxation and serenity.
Can I participate even if I have never done yoga previously?
Most definitely! We all have to start somewhere, and whilst it is a 3-hour workshop, only one hour of it will be dedicated to a physical asana (poses) yoga practice. The yoga offered will be accessible to first-timers and beginners, whilst still suitable for yogis of all levels of experience.
The sequence that I have constructed specifically for the workshops are more so a tool for allowing us to connect our mind, body, heart and soul as we feel into our bodies. It is offered as a practice to encourage us to become attuned to our physical body and connect with it, such a powerful tool for the body-positive journey.
Again, it is a gentle practice that is tailored to be non-intimidating and non-invasive.
If you are after a more intensive and/or recreational physical nude yoga practice, I also offer 1-hour naked yoga classes (females-only and mixed classes available).
What if I have my period?
We’re all females in the workshop and are aware of what comes with being a female. You may choose to either keep a tampon/moon cup in, or wear underwear if you wear a pad. Either way, it is advised that all participants bring a towel for hygiene purposes anyhow, so just remember to bring a towel also.
No casting of judgement here. I am all about embracing our moon cycle and believe it to be such a beautiful time of the month, so I would definitely still encourage you to come along.
When do I get naked?
You're more than welcome to undress as soon as you come in, or if you're feeling a little nervous, you're welcome to keep your robe on for the introduction and take it off when you're ready.
