Hello everyone! I hope you all are well and fighting the cold winter. I have been feeling good and healthy except of an occasional runny noise and super dry lips. I am so jealous of all you Australians who are enjoying summer, sun and beaches. One day, I told myself, I want to spend Xmas near a beach, run around in a red santa bathing suit, slurp cocktails and go surfing.
Do you remember my post on Naked Yoga? If not you can read it again HERE. Anyways, my friend Aniel recently sent me a link of a new Naked Yoga that he found (or got inspired by). This one though shows naked women doing yoga. It is a quite revealing video, although very beautiful, sensual and somehow arty. If you think that naked Yoga is too much for you, please do not watch. By no mean did I want to turn this blog into a nudist community! But it is interesting to see how people interpret Yoga.
From a personal point of view, what do you think about this video? Is nudism just too much when it comes to Yoga or any kind of sport?
I remember going to the sauna with some friends from abroad and they were quite shocked about the fact that we (I mean most Europeans- except English probably) go naked into the sauna. It is somehow normal here and for some hygienic (?) reason people do not like when you sit in the sauna with a bathing suit since you could take all kinds of bacterias and bugs from the outside with you in the sauna.I especially enjoy going to the sauna in the winter, I feel like it helps me stay healthy and cleans my nostrils, skin and organs. There are some major benefits from it, like:
- Allows the skin, our major eliminative organ, to breathe. During winter months we do not sweat a lot (especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle) and we wear many clothes which can damage our skin and our natural ability for elimination.
- Sweating removes toxic chemicals and metals faster than other detox method.
- The heat stimulates the production of white blood cells and strengthens the immune system.
- It improves blood circulation by increasing the rate of blood circulation and breathing.
- Relaxation: heat and humidity of the sauna diffuses the pain and relaxes tired muscles (SOURCE)
Do you frequently go to the sauna? Do you enjoy the heat or is it a no-no for you?
