Uma modelo anônima conhecida como Nude Yoga Girl está ganhando espaço na rede social Instagram. A jovem de 25 anos que prefere manter o anonimato, já conta com quase 415 mil seguidores que acompanham suas fotos nua enquanto pratica e faz diferentes posições de Yoga.
Usando sombras e efeitos sutis para esconder a nudez, a artista busca esconder qualquer sentindo “agressivo” que a imagem possa ter, fazendo as pessoas focarem no lado natural artístico da coisa, e não no sensual.
“Quero incentivar as pessoas a perceberem que todos os corpos são lindos e podem fazer coisas incríveis”, conta ela após explicar como o Yoga ajudou ela a aceitar o seu corpo exatamente como é.
NUDE YOGA CHALLENGE.❤ I want to challenge you to try yoga in the most natural way! I recommend to try nude yoga by yourself because I believe it can give you a better connection to your body, mind and spirit. It can be very liberating. ❤ I mostly do yoga with clothes on but sometimes I practice nude yoga at home. I like it when I can feel the air on my skin instead of tight clothes.. Nude yoga can make you more sensitive but the main thing for me is that I've become "one" with my body and it's easier to accept all the "imperfections" when you focus on your feelings and breath. ❤ Doing yoga naked can bring your body "closer" to you and you can find a way to appreciate, respect and love it. It's your own unique body. Yoga has helped me and many others in a very important way so maybe you can find some kind of peace through it too?☺ ❤ I especially wanted to challenge the lovely and inspiring @sjanaelise . It would be awesome to see a nude yoga picture in her amazing yoga photo collection. Sjana has became my "virtual friend" after she shared one of my photos and story on her IG just when I had about 10K followers. After her support a lot more people where able to find my account so I will always remeber this and thank her for that..❤ ❤ I think we both have many similar thoughts and one is that we want to encourage people to love themselves exactly the way they are.❤
I have written about loving yourself, self acceptance and how yoga helped me in that. Someone has said that it's easy to love your body if you are a model etc.. But the thing is that I believe that self-acceptance comes from our mind. ❤ I was so embarrassed with my body…I thought that my body would be much better if I had beauty surgery. I wished that I would be able to change parts of myself. Thankfully I found the right path and the only change needed was in my mind. ❤ I know many beautiful people who criticies themselves. At the same time I know people who know that they may not fulfill the "ideals of beauty" that our society has wrongly greated but still carry themselves proudly. Those people look absolutely stunning and really understand the meaning of self-acceptance and beauty. Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. If you learn to love yourself, you understand that you don't need to be perfect to be good. ❤ I just want to say that many of us want to be skinnier or bigger, taller or shorter, younger or older, lighter or darker, curvy or less curvy.. But that's very heavy, pointless and tiresome. And life is too short for that. ❤ We should be proud that we are unique and because of that we are special.❤
I always read through all your comments and this time I wanted to make a point from one discussion…❤ ❤ @ellaelers (in response to someone else) "—can you define flawless, perfect image or body? To me, and I'm sure to @nude_yogagirl too, every body is perfect in all it's imperfection, every body is flawless or flawed – it's only a matter of perspective. What you are saying is that those who have this kind of body, which you consider to be "flawless & perfect", should hide themselves. I don't consider her body any more perfect or imperfect as anyones, and I see the truth in her words. Maybe you could see this if you tried to focus a bit more on the message that she is trying to perceive here, try to feel it with your heart and not so much with your mind. We could also focus on accepting, uplifting and encouraging each other and stop seeing other women as enemies or treaths. Peace." ❤ I'm not taking any sides on this discussion but I absolutely agree and love what you are saying @ellaelers: ''I don't consider her body any more perfect or imperfect as anyones.'' ❤ ❤ In the past I wasn't able to accept my body. There were days when I felt pain when I saw my body from the mirror because I wanted to change something about it so badly. I wasn't living in peace with myself and it made my days too difficult. ❤ I will always be thankful to yoga for showing me the right path and making me understand the real true values of beauty and that every single one of us is unique and we should treasure that. ❤ It doesn't matter if your are short/tall or big/small etc.. You are beautiful exactly the way you are. It all starts from our mind. 😊❤
Yoga has given me a lot and nowadays it's more a lifestyle for me, not just a hobby. It's present everyday in my life in many ways and I'm so grateful that I found yoga.. That I gave the opportunity for yoga not just for one class but many times until I really got into yoga and found a deeper meaning and connection with it. ❤ Yoga gives me joy, energy and peace more than I ever thought could be possible. It teaches me and it challenges me. But at the same time on my mat I can be just me. Yoga is gentle and you don't need to strive for perfection. ❤ I love so much the feeling after yoga, the practice that I do with my body. I love that on my mat I can forget everything else. ❤ The most meaningful thing is that yoga helped me to love myself and my body fully. Yoga is all about how you feel on the inside and not about how you look on the outside. ❤ During yoga I learned to listen to my body and know myself better. I got more confidence. And I really started to understand that we should love our body the way it is because everyone of us is unique and has been blessed with such a beautiful mechanism, the human body. ❤ Happy international yoga day! 😊❤ Thank you for following my journey. 🙏
Enthusiasm is the best feeling that I know. It's like falling in love… I'm not hungry anymore, I need less sleep and loose the sense of time. I'm more present in the moment, my focus is brilliant and the flow just continues. I feel happy. Henry Ford has said "You can do anything if you have enthusiasm." I agree. ❤ I totally believe that enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines for success. For me enthusiasm means that I know myself too. That I'm honest for myself and do what my heart says. You can't force yourself to get inspired… You can help it but something is still missing if you try to force inspiration. I always recommend people to follow their passion if they have one. It's a gift. And we can learn our passion if we listen to our heart. ❤ One thing that I like about myself is that I can be so so enthusiastic. And if I have passion for something, nothing is going to stop me. But there is another side.. I really need some passion for my happiness. If I lose my enthusiasm I feel like I lose a part of myself too. Because I get my energy from expressing myself the way I love. ❤ I have written that there have been times when I haven't known what is my next step, my goal, my dream? Where would I put my interest and creativity? Nothing inspired me enough… ❤ But then it just comes in your mind! Everything clicks together. And I love it, I love when I have a vision that makes me jump up from my bed in the morning. I'm so grateful that now I have my own mission… ☺ Have you ever felt this way? ❤
