Naked Yoga – A Celebration of the Body
Many of us practice yoga for the health benefits it brings, but it has many other benefits. Its meditative components help us focus on our breathing and clear our minds. It also functions as a beautiful celebration of the human body in its purest form.
As the photographer Petter Hegre, who took the photographs below of his wife Luba Shumeyko, exposes in his work, there is so much fine detail revealed when the clothes are removed and the body is poised. Yoga is the ultimate example of this, and naked yoga is the perfect way to examine the curves and contours of the human body.
Hegre’s work blurs the line between artistry, naturism and pornography, sometimes all three merge together. The results are always striking.
So, how do you celebrate your body? Leave a comment below…
