I tore a cruciate ligament in my knee a few years ago. I looked at activities which could help re-gain flexibility in it, as well as help my overall fitness. A friend suggested yoga, around the same time I saw there were nude yoga sessions in a nearby town in a local naturist group’s newsletter. I’d never done yoga seriously before, I had done tai chi sessions at events organised by another naturist club though, so I knew how good it felt to do it naked. I took some exercises gently while my knee was recovering, over time it got much better and I continue to go to nude yoga sessions. Like a lot of things, once I’ve done them nude its never the same in clothing. Any one else done similar activities naked?
I totally agree on the significantly improved flexibility that nudity gives over even loose-fitting and quite minimalist clothing. After my first few sessions of yoga I felt like I’d found some muscles I never knew I had, because they ached. Perhaps your gyms advice would have been good to have heeded, so I might have had a head-up as to where I might ache.
