The Practice

We offer Go Bare Yoga. Go Bare or Naked Yoga comes from the Indian tradition of Vivastra. A Sanskrit word meaning unclothed. Naked yoga classes are offered because we believe that the act of practicing yoga without the addition or restriction of clothing can be both liberating and nurturing. We are about our yoga. Our goal is to create a safe place where people can explore their practice and their relationship to their body.

In the Bhagavata Purana it says:

”A person in the renounced order of life may try to avoid even a dress to cover himself. If he wears anything at all, it should be only a loincloth, and when there is no necessity, a sannyāsī should not even accept a daṇḍa. A sannyāsī should avoid carrying anything but a daṇḍa and kamaṇḍalu.” ~ Srimad Bhagavatam 7.13.2

“The practice of spiritual nudity is common among Digambara Jains, Aghori sadhus, and other ascetic groups in the dharmic religions. A notable example is the order of sadhus known as the Nagas who use nudity as a part of their spiritual practice of renunciation.” ~Wikipedia

That is to say that the now current trend of naked yoga arose in India and in many ways is one of the purest forms of yoga inside the context of releasing identity to clothes & self and allowing the focus to be on the spiritual work of compassionate loving the physical self and unification with spirit.

We offer classes, workshops, Retreats and Teacher Trainings.
