yoga:

my little, cramped apartment has been much too uncomfortable to practice yoga in and this, combined with the cancellation of my gym membership, has caused me to almost completely abandon my practice over the past ten months or so.

but yesterday morning my parents took home most of the furniture from my living room and kitchen, so now i have a big (um, not very big), open space in my apartment to lay out my mat.

i just pulled out my deck of yoga cards and stretched for a solid 45 minutes. it felt so, so, so wonderful. i'm getting excited about picking it up again, and about perhaps starting a weekly (or bi-weekly? or tri-weekly?) pick-up yoga session on the lawn across from 715 in the fall.

hmm. what on earth would the neighbors think if we practiced naked?

bradley -- are you talking about our friends, or about this woman? because she's pretty good looking, and not unsightly at all.

You have inspired me. I have been doing Yoga and Pilates for more than 2 years now at the YMCA and at home. I tried doing yoga and Pilates in the nude and its great! One can do all asanas much easier without any clothing getting in the way. Twists and inversions are much easier. I'm hooked! Looking now for a coed nude yoga group class! Sherry

Dear Sherry; Saw your post. Myself and 3 other girls (we are 19, 20, 21 and 23 yrs- some college students) have been doing nude yoga for the past 3 months and we love it. We are all learning yoga together from DVDs and getting better. We meet twice a week at one of our places due to no yoga studio offering these type classes yet. We are in the Houston area if you are anywhere near us and would like to join us leave me a message and a way to contact you. We are all straight by the way.
We too would love to join a organized coed nude yoga class with a good teacher! Later, Signed: 4 nude yogi girls

in response to the two recent anonymous comments:

i have no idea how you found my blog, or this post in particular. i practice yoga, but i am not necessarily advocating naked yoga (although i fully support those who do practice naked). the reference to naked yoga in this post was simply meant as a joke between friends. therefore, i'd really rather not have my comment section become a discussion group for naked yogis looking for others to practice with. i would appreciate no further discourse on that topic here. thanks!
