Nuisance Exercises. Nude Pilates. Nude Yoga. Drop your inhibitions at the door. Exercise in the buff becomes a trend …
In searching for this article, I am fascinated, not … shocked, to how many forums it exists for bare exercises. Now I'm not prude. I'm just curious.
Here are some descriptions that I have read on the forums of people who describe their exercise sessions au-naturel. Uninhibited. Ok … obviously. Release. That happens a lot. Productive. Productive? Let's look at this one.
When you exercise your birthday suit, there is nothing to hide. When you do naked Pilates exercises, it means even more. Pilates is a method of exercise focused on detail, with particular attention to your form. How better to see your form than to do naked Pilates! You can not deceive. Your belly will be in. Your shoulders will be down. Your fund will be committed. Yes, your workout will be more productive.
Does this mean that your local Pilates studio will start offering nude Pilates classes? Probably not. My Pilates studio will not be mainly because no one would come. I live in New England. We cover most things here.
I think most people practice their bare exercises in the privacy of their own home or in a nudist camp. Is it safe to exercise naked? I must believe that most exercises can be done naked, however, pay attention to these high-impact exercises. The breasts and testicles need additional support, thank you.
What about the cleanliness factor of naked exercise? What germinating porridge will they enter in places where they should not be? Even the cleanest Pilates material can carry a certain amount of germs. This thought certainly has some sort of yuck factor.
Ok … let's spread this subject a bit. What is the truth about Pilates? What are myths?
Myth: Pilates is just for women.
Naked truth: no way! Joseph Pilates was a man. Men also need strength, flexibility and balance.
Myth: Pilates is like yoga.
Naked truth: no way! Yoga is yoga. Pilates is Pilates. There are cross-references. Breathing, stretching and focusing are part of both modalities, but the similarities stop there.
Myth: Pilates is too difficult to master.
Naked truth: no way! You have to start somewhere and beginners benefit from Pilates as much as seasoned professionals. Start with the basics, even if you are fit. Remember: You must build a solid foundation before building a house!
Whether exercises harm your thing or not, do a Pilates test. With or without your clothes, Pilates is a great choice.
