4. Naked yoga
This undressed form of yoga promotes acceptance of the body in its most basic form.
“It’s not so much a sexual class, but it’s sexy in that you’re coming into a confidence and just feeling really empowered in your body,” says Dee Dussault who leads a nude yoga class once a week from her Toronto yoga studio, Follow Your Bliss. She says the benefits are similar to those of a conventional yoga class, though it is much more “meditative and relaxing.”
In general, many forms of yoga aim to create awareness, and Dussault says she begins each naked yoga class by encouraging participants to be mindful of their breathing and the sensations they feel on their skin. “It’s all about the sensations, and the feeling of your body, and taking pleasure in being strong and beautiful no matter what your size,” says Dussault.
