Nude Yoga

Why the fuss?

A face of India

Mention those two words ‘new yoga’ and people’s brains quite literally turn to mush. But let’s go back to the origin of the word yoga which means to unite meaning to ‘unite the individual consciousness to the universal consciousness’ and at the end of the day it has little to do with the body even though for most people this is a starting point.

If we go far enough back in history, clothing was only for a temporary protection from the elements or to protect the skin in certain occupations and people had no issue with nudity. Being dressed in one’s own skin is perfectly normal and natural, but what has happened

Dare to Bare

The roll of naturism in life and health

We all inhabit a human body, it is a vehicle that carries us through life. Some cultures have celebrated this human body while others have declared that it is repugnant and shameful. If those people who despise the human body think it is so bad why do they put up with their own?

The human body occurs naturally within nature but why has it become so derided and shameful? In most countries today, if you walked naked down the street you would be arrested and this is more so if you are a male; but you’re more likely to get away with it if you’re a female.

Anatomy & Physiology

Human structure and function

The human being is the most complex and sophisticated organism we know of and it’s literally made from the soil of out planet.

The foundation is our physical body, a robust organism that has grown from an egg into the person you are today. Our body is fused together by a creative principal that works in our gut to convert food into body parts as well as energy for procreation, physical and mental expression.

The body grows and maintains itself with very little input from us. This body has its own autonomic nervous system which keeps the breath, the circulation of blood and lymph circulating. In other words, all the internal processes of our bodies are

Naked in Jamaika

Naked Beaches and Getting your kit off

Naked and proud. Interestingly, guys are too shy to pose naked.

Most Caribbean islanders are very religious and conservative, therefore public nudity is generally frowned upon or not allowed. As far as the law is concerned, clothing optional beaches are not legal but as tourism pays the bills, the authorities turn a blind eye.

Topless sunbathing is widely acceptable in Jamaica, but spots for full-on nude swimming and sunbathing are a little scarce. You can of course hire a boat or a boat owner to take you to some deserted beach. If you’re going to do this, it’s best not to go alone and of course you need drinking water, sunscreen reef shoes
