Naked yoga photos are taking over Instagram

Yoga is the perfect way to unwind, get flexible and relieve stress. Some like to take this one step further by getting rid of everything that’s stopping them from moving in their own body: by taking off their clothes. Yep, naked yoga is a thing and it’s pretty hot and happening on Instagram. It all started with @Nude_yogagirl, an anonymous yogi who shares her naked yoga poses online and is now encouraging others to do the same by using the hashtag #NYGyoga. As a result, naked yoga is flooding the web and it’s a beautiful thing as the Nude Yoga Girl explains:

Doing naked yoga is about much more than the photo,” she says. “It’s the positive experience of taking time to connect with yourself and celebrate your unique body.”

🍃 My #NYGyoga challenge 🌿 Trust my first ever yoga challenege to involve nudity and nature 🙈😂 Yoga teaches that our bodies are sacred. Gifts from nature given to carry us through this life 🍃 .We are not our body we are our soul. Yoga means union, when we strive to live in union with our mind and our body we learn to accept ourselves and love the skin we are in 🙏 a never ending journey. Thank you @nude_yogagirl for inspiring people to see the body as art – I have never practiced nude in this spot and it was one of the most incredibly freeing experiences ☄ #yoga #nudeyoga #yogachallenege #bluemountains #nature #yogi #yogaeveryday #australia #sunset #beautiful #landscape #flexible #strong #art #body #skinlove #NYG #inspire #wildwoman #freedom

When I was younger I tried to make myself look shorter. At first when I was in primary school I was jelous of my tinier friends… They were so cute. People were lifting and holding them in their arms and it looked fun. I felt giant. Also at the same time I did team gymnastic and one year I didn’t qualify for the team like all of my friends did and it was obviously the “first team”. Nobody ever told me why but in my mind it was because I was too tall. I was one head taller than others in that team and because it’s also an aesthetic sport, it would make the team unbalanced. ❤ Eventually boys came in the game… I was taller than all nice boys and I hated it. In particular in all discos where the dance was slow… I tried to have bad posture on purpose to look as short as possible. ❤ Until I started to do modelling I thought that I’m never going to be able to use high heels. That I’m too tall to enjoy beautiful shoes. (And in the “model world” I was hoping that I would be even taller!) ❤ It would have been nice to know at a young age that one day my height could and will be my strenght which I really like. At festival concerts I can see well over all the heads. I don’t need chairs to get to the top closet. Etc. Now I’m proud and very grateful of my every centimeter. I just wanted to tell you how I struggled for many years with my height, if this can give hope to some who are in same situation. 😊 #NYGyoga
