Happy Hump Day Yogis!
This seemed appropriate since naked yoga seems to be all the rage lately...and it's hump day.
For my advanced yogis grab a friend and give this a try! (Partner yoga that is...not the naked aspect)
Much love, naked or not. 💕
This my fav standing balancing pose that strengthens and tones the body. It is also a great next step when you feel the need to challenge yourself a little further from tree pose or other upright standing balance poses.
To be Hot, Sweaty and Naked (in public that is) or Not...that is the question.
Last night I ran into an old friend from highschool, who funny enough had a entrepreneurial friend who found out my background and business is yoga. He sat down, introduced himself and got to the point: what do I think about hot naked yoga and do I think it would work.
Needless to say I have my opinions both from a personal and business stand point and shared them with him in hopes to help him gain insight with his venture into this field...and today I fatefully find this article being promoted on the sidelines of one of my yoga info websites while planning a **NON NUDE** yoga class.
What are your thoughts? Would you go to a public nude yoga class? Co-ed, same gender or otherwise?
This is such a gentle easy pose to do at anytime during the day- on the mat or not. Yet it offers such a wide variety of benefits to the body and mind.
Benefits of this Pose:
This pose is so great for grounding and finding your sense of balance. There are so many yoga poses you can do day in and day out regardless of your mood or energy, but tree pose tends to reveal if you are feeling off-balance in any way. Sometimes this being "off-balance" can simply reflect the fact that something is weighing on your mind and you are unable to focus or it can indicate that something may be "off" on a deeper level.
It has been said that falling out of a balancing pose is the"ego" leaving the body- so never be embarrassed or ashamed if you cannot master this pose every now and again as every day presents us with new challenges and we are in a different space then we were the day before.
Lemon + Honey Mask:
Great for healing acne and blackheads.
Take 1/2 a lemon and drizzle the top with honey.
Rub all over the face
Leave on for 5-10 minutes
