If you go to a yoga class, there’s always at least one person that goes t-shirt free while practicing their downward-dog and posing in tree. Initially, our response may be to be ask if that’s truly necessary; but, there are so many reasons why your fellow yogi should be an inspiration for you to throw judgement out the window and adopt the same topless regime, whether you're in a class, or practicing at home with Sweatflix.
Here are 10 reasons to practice yoga t-shirt free:
1. Let It All Hang Out
Who cares what the people around you are doing. Yoga class is a solo mission to get sweaty and bendy.
2. Yoga Is Not Just About Your Body
Your body is merely the medium of your practice. The focus should be about presence and breathing techniques.
3. Come As You Are
Yoga is about embracing natural beauty. In a class setting, that means not worrying about where your neighbor got their workout gear.
4. Practice Makes Perfect
Going t-shirt free means that you accept yourself just the way you are today, and the stronger and more-toned-you of tomorrow.
5. You’re The Coolest
Not only do you exude confidence, but you actually get the chance to cool down after the Warrior Series.
6. You’re Also A Badass
Stop worrying about what anyone else is doing and pave your own path of rebellion. This care-free attitude will help you focus on being the best yogi you can be.
7. Set The Bar For Self-Acceptance
You might just inspire someone in your class who isn’t a size-2 to lose the layers too.
8. You’re Making A Statement
Show those around you -- whether at home or at a class -- that the old standard of beauty just doesn’t apply to you.
9. It Shows Vulnerability
Going shirtless shows that you are ready and willing to accept what the world is dishing out.
10. Give A Few Less F***s
You’ve got bigger fish to fry than to worry about what people are thinking of you!
My motivation is one less piece of clothing to wash
Like naked yoga! ;) All 10 applies!
