    Yoga enthusiast Rhyanna Watson has racked up a staggering number of followers, over 92,000 people, for her stretching stunts… including in the buff. She believes that naked exercising helps you feel freer, less self-conscious and more empowered.

    There is a deeply personal reason behind Rhyanna's taking up yoga, as having found herself in a deep post-natal depression, after giving birth to her beloved daughter Laine, she "needed to find a way of working within", to find herself again through the depression, she told Sputnik.

    "So I began my journey of firstly physical asanas, and then combined it with the breath," to overcome the issue, find the "wholeness and power" again and feel a better person, Rhyanna remarked.

    In everyday life, yoga helps Rhyanna to connect more authentically with herself, understand how her body and her mind feel. "So you become more consciously aware of where you place the way in which you respond to the world.

    So if someone is upset you become a little be more mindful to take a breath before you respond with kindness; if you are having a bad day, instead of thinking it's a bad day you realise it's just a bad moment," she explained.

    It also allows you to have more mobility, flexibility and strength, but "mindfulness is probably the most powerful thing," Rhyanna said. 

    When it comes to exercise in the buff, yoga has never been about what clothes you pick to practise it in. Rhyanna is certain that it's about practising freedom, "away from stigmas of society".

    "Nude bodies — it's not all sexual. Bodies are a movement tool," she argued going on to state that society has made us feel ashamed to be in our bodies, and our bodies to be the reason why we are not good enough "to be parents, mothers or anything like that. " Rhyanna made a reference to a big community of yogis, stressing that nude is normal, and it should be understood along these lines.

    "We have a human body, don't have a shower or a naked shower. We simply have a shower," she said, admitting bitterly that we "have come away from the understanding of the concept of being whole as a human, and keep focusing on the externals."

    The yoga expert was earlier quoted by the Daily Star as saying that the full understanding of which training conditions are the most comfortable for her came quite unexpectedly, as 35-year-old Rhyanna stripped off once to check if her body posture was correct in order to stretch the necessary muscles “and build a mind-muscle connection for a more aware practice." 

    Naked yoga, like naturism in general, is becoming increasingly popular among fitness junkies, with some documenting their headway on social media to their friends’ applause, and others attending special classes to feel like they are part of a nude sporting team.

    Switzeland-based Watson shared that nude yoga, which encompasses not only physical training but also mental practices, has helped her reach the best shape she has ever had, with her physique now at the age of 35 being more toned than at 20.

    The jaw-dropping snapshots that she regularly shares on her @openheartscanunite page definitely prove it: in some, she is captured on camera in her birthday suit; while others sport her donning revealing outfits. 

    However, the yoga guru argues that stripping is not necessarily sexual, thereby countering some fans’ saucy comments online.

    “My yoga poses are simply done as art. Art is meant to make someone feel, not look a certain way or evoke a specific certain feeling,” Watson said, adding that while cutting the best angles in yoga is all creative and artful, photography is a way to express it properly.

    However, some do not take the pains to grasp the idea behind the art, being completely drawn and aroused by the beautiful naked body and expressing much more interest in how it helps the stunner in the sack.

    Watson has a response in store to salacious questions, arguing that mastering yoga poses doesn't necessarily improve sex life, "unless you are practising it mindfully".

    #loveyourbodyyogachallenge #lotus last day Womens sexuality is not a mystery. It is not complicated. Womens bodies are not Rubiks cubes any more than mens bodies are. It is just that we haven't taken the time to really listen to women and prioritize womens pleasure. Who is She? She is your power, your Feminine source. Big Mama. The Goddess. The Great Mystery. The web-weaver. The life force. The first time, the twentieth time you may not recognize her. Or pretend not to hear. As she fills your body with ripples of terror and delight. But when she calls you will know you’ve been called. Then it is up to you to decide if you will answer. The deep Feminine, the mystery of consciousness, She who is life, is longing for our transformation as much as we are. She holds back, allowing us free reign to choose, nudging us occasionally with synchronicities, illness, births and deaths… But when we make space for Her, she rushes into all the gaps, engulfing us with her desire for life and expression. This is what She longs for, this is what we are for: experiencing the Feminine through ourselves. We simply need to slow down, and find where to put our conscious attention. And it is this, this willingness to look again, this willingness to put consciousness onto our places of unconscious, to express what we have always avoided, which starts the process of unblocking, so that She may flow through. ― Lucy H.

    “It is not about how many positions you can do. It is about your connection to yourself and the other person”, she responded when asked about if yoga directly improves one's intimate life, insisting that if you feel the connection and energy, no special position will make sex better.
