What is Yoga?
Yoga is a mind, body, and spiritual practice or discipline which originated in India. There are a broad variety of schools, practices, and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Among the most well-known types of yoga are Hatha yoga .
The origins of yoga may date back over 5000 years to pre-Vedic traditions. It is speculated yoga predates the major world religions. It most likely developed around the sixth and fifth centuries BCE, in ancient India. Cave drawings of yoga poses are said to exist. The chronology of earliest texts describing yoga-practices is unclear, varyingly credited to Hindu Upanishads, probably of third century BCE or later. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali date from the first half of the 1st millennium CE, gained prominence in the West in the 20th century. Hatha yoga texts emerged around the 11th century.
Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the west. Three great masters who were all trained by Sri Krishnamacharya, Pattabi Jois, BKS Iyengar and TKV Desikachar brought yoga to a broader audience in he early 20th century. In the 1980s, yoga became a popular form of physical exercise in the Western world. Yoga is more than physical exercise, it has a meditative and spiritual foundation. Yoga at its core is a spiritual practice but not a religious practice.
What is Nagna Yoga?
Naked yoga (Sanskrit nagna yoga or vivastra yoga) is the practice of yoga without clothes. While many practice naked yoga at home and in nature, there are a growing number of participants in group classes. The practice is gaining popularity, notably in western societies that have more familiarity with social nudity.
Naked yoga should be considered in relation to the dress code at yoga courses, varying from different times and yoga directions.
