Day 16 Naked Yoga Challenge. Chataranga Dandasana. Four-Limbed Staff Pose / Yoga Push-up.
Dearest Clothes Free Yoga Practitioners, On January 16th, I am beginning a 30 Day Naked Yoga challenge. I will be posting a self-taken photo (also known as a selfie) of a different yoga pose each day with a body positive affirmation for the next thirty days leading up to Valentine’s Day. The goal of the challenge is to celebrate the practice of naked yoga as a gateway to greater self-love. The challenge will culminate on Valentine’s Day which I officially now proclaim as a day of naked yoga love. YOUR CHALLENGE: In this time, I encourage you to submit your favorite self-love inspired naked yoga selfie with a body positive affirmation or a testimony of how you feel practicing naked yoga. In the end, I will create a collage of the best photos to post on the Home page of Naked Yoga Alliance. The best nude yoga selfie photographer will be interviewed and a final article with their photo will be published on the Naked Yoga Alliance website. Inspirational Naked Yoga Selfie Contest: Photo Guidelines & Etiquette. Full body shots only. No blurred faces. If you’re shy, you can pose facing away from the camera. Be tasteful. Be creative. Take the photo yourself. (I do that using a timer app on my iPhone camera as well as a spider tripod) Please no explicit focus on genitals. Most importantly have fun. You can submit up to three favorite photos of yourself for consideration. The best naked yoga selfie photographer will be interviewed and have that interview featured on the Naked Yoga Alliance website. When submitting your photo please include: Name (first name or alias is fine) Age, Location, and Yoga Pose as well as a one or two lines of inspired text around how you feel practicing naked yoga. Final date for photo submissions is Feb 13th 2015. Email photos and info to Isis: firstname.lastname@example.org Good Luck!
|Isis Phoenix’s Interview with Beth Nolan.Beth Nolan, 48. Beth Nolan is a Licensed Massage Therapist,Yoga teacher, energy healer using Reiki and Dowsing and Health Kinesiologist.
At age twelve, I developed psoriasis. My parents generation was one that grew up idolizing doctors. No doctor could find anything to cure me. My streaking subsided. Then there was an actual need to cover up. Itchy, red, scaly patches on my knees and elbows, on my torso and scalp. I always wore long pants and shirts. At the beach I would cover up in a onepiece.
In my teens, I was in a bad car accident. It left me with a limp. I found an amazing chiropractor that worked with me on healing my body. He introduced me to the power of energy medicine, dowsing and muscle testing. I was amazed at my body’s ability to heal itself with this support. I started working in the chiropractic office as an assistant when I was seventeen. I became attune to the energy meridians in people’s bodies and learned how to support patients with supplements and diet through muscle testing and dowsing. It took a few years, but muscle testing ultimately helped me keep my psorasis in check by figuring out what foods were causing my irritation and what supplements would support my digestive system.
The chiropractor’s office was just the beginning. I went on to train and become a massage therapist. My mom couldn’t understand why I would want to touch people and always had questions about who I was massaging. To me it was a natural extension of my own healing journey. My massage teacher told me, in order to have any longevity in massage, I needed to practice yoga. I did yoga for years as a way to heal and restore my body and eventually went on to become certified as a yoga teacher.
