Hundreds of Women Are Sharing Photos of Themselves Doing Naked Yoga

Since 2015, the anonymous photographer and model popularly known as Nude Yoga Girl has been sharing artistic, nude, self-portraits on Instagram-most of which capture her in the middle of a super-challenging yoga pose. The images are raw and real and are often paired with captions that promote self-love. (Related: What I Learned About Myself from Trying Naked Yoga)

It's no wonder that over the past few years, her stunning photography and her body-positive messages have helped her gain 672,000 followers, many of whom are now sharing nude yoga photos of their own. These photos were prompted by Nude Yoga Girl after she asked her followers to share their own naked yoga pictures using the hashtag #NYGyoga to help promote body diversity.

"It's much more than just the actual photo," Nude Yoga Girl said of nude photos. "I think about it as an experience to really connect with your body, be there with it in a natural way. It's the positive experience, photo, and caption together. To know that people have really taken time to connect with themselves and celebrate their unique bodies. The empowering feeling they get from it. That makes me happy."

So far, more than 500 people have shed their clothes and are doing the downward dog and other Zen positions au naturel. In the process, they've captured all sorts of diverse body types, proving that yoga is indeed for everyone.

[filtered] autem voluptatem vel architecto consequuntur aut iste. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖

While I think it's great to be comfortable with your own body I don't agree with sharing it with the world. To me is exhibitionism. And talk about asking for sick perverts out there to track you down and God forbid rape you. Just keep it to yourself. Do your yoga in the privacy of your home. People have lost all sense of morals

I think I understand--but still, I kind of see this as a mild form of exhibitionism!
