Excerpt: Naked Yoga is The Fitness Craze Taking Over Australia – But is Singapore Ready For It?
Whilst we’re all fans of yoga for it’s positive wellbeing properties on both the body and the mind, would we dare to bare for the nude yoga revolution?
Women’s nude yoga is not just about practicing yoga in the nude, it is a practice in vulnerability, courage and manifestation of radical self-love and acceptance. Simply turning up to the workshop is a major feat for many and enough to change their entire attitude to life. For some women, nude yoga helps them reconnect with their sexuality; for others, the process helps them to move past trauma that was holding them back.
Women of all ages, shapes, sizes and shades come along for a powerful three to four hour immersion in surrender, softening and letting go of acquired armour, masks, masculinity, shame & body insecurities.

Excerpt: Do You Know What Meat Is Doing To Your Body?

Modern science shows us clearly that if we want to thrive, we should avoid all meat as much as possible, or even better, cut it out altogether.
