Women's Naked Yoga: Why I am Taking the Girls Away From Mixed-Gender Bare Yoga Classes


by Nude Yogi and Naked Shaman Extraordinaire Isis Phoenix Why Nude Yoga For Women Only By Isis Phoenix Why are you taking the women away from us?! exclaimed one of my most devoted male yoga students. He was a man in his late sixties and a longtime naturist who for most of his life was deeply dedicated to a naturist lifestyle. This was in 2008 when I was newly teaching http://x-nudism.com/community/beach/nudist-pregnant-cumshots.php in New York and had a small but dedicated following that filled up my twelve-individual yoga studio several times per week. The remark came as a reaction to setting a women's naked yoga course on the otherwise mixed-gendered weekly yoga program. The comment was nearly childlike when it left his mouth. Why are you taking the women away from us?! That is a horrible thought! he said, seeming more like an eight year old whose primary school teacher had just advised him that break would be cancelled rather than a mature sixty-eight year-old yogi dedicated to a bi-weekly practice. Naked Yoga Girls Educator — Isis Phoenix I was taken aback by the reactive exclamatory comment. It surely was not my goal to take anything away from anybody. Actually, I'd started teaching mixed-gendered naked yoga courses because as a girl there were now no choices for me in New York. The only classes being taught at that time were designated as male-only. I so strongly disliked being excluded' from something because of my sex that I dedicated to teaching naked yoga with a ferocious feminist excitement. When I started my own space in Awesome York to teach, I had several requests from women for a women-only class. But when I added such a class to the weekly program, I received a very outspoken backlash from the male yogis. Why are you taking the girls away from us? echoed in my ears for days. Despite reactions, I held women-only courses for several weeks. The objection that an all woman's class would attract all the girls and isolate them into their own time and space for naked yoga, never again to step foot into mixed-sex classesgave me pause. I realized in hindsight that it was like me taking a child's temper tantrum as guidance for the evolutionary trail of naked yoga. Women's Naked Yoga by Isis Phoenix I made a decision, nevertheless, after a few weeks of small presence, to not move forward with this notion of women-only classes. Being awesome to teaching naked yoga at the time in addition to assorted nude environments, the squeaky wheel got the grease. Shortly after I started women's naked yoga classes, I quit them. I lacked the discipline to cultivate the women's movement at the time and due to NY rent expenses and angry male yogis, my attention went where there was a natural flow of energy towards mixed-gender classes, which often times turned out to be all male. After teaching for some time I slowly started to recognize that women's confidence takes time and patience to grow and develop, and my Fresh Yorker attitude was short on that. The nature of the feminine is that we need safety in which to blossom open. When women didn't come pouring in the door to practice naked yoga like guys did, I focused only on the coed groups. I let my girls's class idea recede to the rear of my symptom list. Unfortunately, there were times when there was just one female student in an otherwise all male class. I, as a teacher, occasionally felt uncomfortable when this sex arrangement occurred and somewhat subliminally felt the need to shield the woman in the course. The same outspoken pupil that was upset with me for starting an all women's class would get a point to go up and talk with the only female yogi in the class. He would particularly request her to come back again. Few, if any, of these alone yogis returned. I am unsure if the request to come back felt more demanding than inviting. The blind spot was what hadn't been cultivated or created at the time- an accessibility for women to feel comfortable in a combined bare surroundings practicing yoga. For a woman to appear to a naked yoga class and be the only female there, specially if it is her first experience being socially bare, this can be greatly intimidating. Nude Women's Yoga Instructor Isis Phoenix as soon as I tried a smattering of women's naked yoga classes in New York, I look back and see how, surprisingly, beach volleyball pussy slip led to several women becoming naked yoga teachers themselves. These girls are at present prominent in the yoga and naturist community. This occurred because there was an initial entry point into naked yoga with an all-female troupe. This happened because they felt safe. After a few years of teaching and observing how girls engage in combined nude diversion, I realized that girls who are newly investigating social nudity often want a supportive women-only space. It is where they could develop their inner power and self confidence before entering into a nude interracial-sex group. Having lately relocated to Central Massachusetts I was reminded of this almost instantly. The first private naked yoga session I taught here was to a middle aged suburban mom who reached out to me because she desired to develop her self-confidence and deepen her awareness of ease in her own skin. She desired to increase her practice of self-love and open to a more profound understanding of herself as a woman. We shared a lovely yoga session collectively in which she admitted to me she'd nearly cancelled several times leading up to the session due to fear. I have had two kids, she confided in me like we were old friends. I have had two cesareans and I 've stretch marks. I feel like my body was in the leftovers heap when they were handing them out in this life. She also explained that she'd seen images online of a girl practicing naked yoga who'd her physique. She said it was really healing and liberating to see a girl with a body like hers with this much self-confidence. She mentioned, too, during our private session that a mixed gender category would have been completely hopeless for her, but a private session she could do, and a women's class likely in the foreseeable future. In my own practice, I knew deep down the healing effects that happened for me in practicing naked yoga more self-confidence, body approval and a more profound, more committed practice of self-love. Well, game on. Guys I'm taking the women away from you. I'm taking them deep into the heart, belly, breasts and uterus of wholeness, acceptance and celebration of our women's bodies. I am taking them away from you in order to create new possibilities for girls to appear in mixed gender environments confidently, proudly and enthusiastically.
