Know the benefits of acroyoga naturista (Brazil)

How about doing a physical activity that involves yoga concentration and posture, with acrobatics and, to complete, Thai massage movements? All these features can be found in the naturist acroyoga!

The technique has long been famous among celebrities, but the goal of high demand is all the benefits that exercise can bring to your body, body and mind. Do you want to include a different practice in your routine? Naturopathic yoga instructor Fred Schinke reveals the benefits of naturopathic acroyoga.

Unlike most sports that aim only at overcoming results, the naturist acroyoga provides much deeper physical and mental work. The first point is that you need a partner to perform the fundamental movements of the technique, which means working together and especially mutual trust. In this way, the technique helps you overcome fears, insecurities and deal better with others, perfect for those who are shy or have anxiety and depression.

Not to mention that your body also benefits from this exercise. All movements help strengthen muscles by working the abdomen, arms, legs and spine.

Acroyoga grace and balance

If you are already a yoga practitioner, even better, since you will have more strength and flexibility to perform acro movements. But that does not prevent inexperienced people from practicing the technique. Sport is welcome for all people, but before starting, it is essential to consult a doctor to see if everything is fine with your joints, spine and overall health. And be sure to ask the expert if he is free to practice the exercise!

There are positions that are essential for this activity. However, it is important to always practice them with caution, without exceeding the limits of your body and with the help of a professional in the field.

Volunteering at your naturist club

Years ago, after we had set our first careful steps into naturism and when we were browsing the internet for a new naked place to visit we stumbled upon a mention “federation membership required”. What was that supposed to mean?

Until then, a naturist campground to us was just like a textile one where you could show up, pay and setup your tent. Now, apparently, we were in need of some membership card.
It only took a couple of clicks to figure out that naturism was in fact something pretty well organised. That there were actual federations taking care of the rights of naturists and guarantee a safe environment. They organise events where it’s possible to get in touch with other naturists and what appealed the most to us, they would give us a card that promised entry to places where until now we wouldn’t be allowed.

Unlike in many other countries, in Belgium it was not possible to directly become member of the naturist federation. One has to become member of a naturist club. So that’s what we tried to do. We picked one of the 10 or so clubs, it didn’t really matter which one as long as we would be able to get federation membership, and received a form to fill out. Name, age, gender, address, all the regular questions, and then “What can you do for our club?”
Well… euhm… yeah…

What can we do for your club…

Pay the membership fee?

A few clicks later we found out how many naturist clubs depend on volunteers for their daily work and how club members spend a certain amount of time tending the bar, cutting the hedge or cleaning the swimming pool.

Late Summer Nights with Naturist Friends
My Humble Attempt at Writing a How-To Guide

Following a busy summer of European Travel – a few weeks for business, then a few for vacation travel – it was pretty jarring to return home to the oppressively humid days of the northeastern USA where my administrative job awaited me with an insurmountable to-do list. The previous weeks had scarcely required me to bother with clothing at any time of the day as we found refuge at naturist resorts in the South of France and Catalonia. In that region, the summer air is warm and dry, sunny more often than not. At home, adorned in the requisite button-down shirt and dress shoes, each day vacillates between the sweltering heat of late August, countered by the abrasive gale force winds of office air conditioning systems. Regardless, in either situation, clothing seems a nuisance and a hindrance to regulating body temperature – all of which routinely landed on the family room floor the minute I walked through the door at the end of each day.

Late Summer Nights with Naturist Friends

Fortunately, we have cultivated a naturist friendly refuge in our home located a few miles beyond the suburbs of the northeast corridor, and time has worked on our side with the careful addition of fast-growing hedges and shrubs that has resulted in what I affectionately call my “naturist man cave.” While it seems that most man caves are found in windowless basements featuring an overstuffed couch, a widescreen TV, and a fridge full of beer, mine looks quite different. Imagine a screened porch, a deck extending to the hot tub, and even a fire pit for the late summer nights when the chill starts to set in. After years in the making, it’s been a long time since I’ve needed to worry about clothing in my back yard. While our neighbors on each side are rarely inclined to wander into our backyard unannounced, they are all aware that doing so may well result in the sighting of a middle-aged guy sitting buck-naked with a glass of wine, reading his kindle on the porch. It’s happened once or twice, and guess what? Nobody much cared.

What can and cannot be done where social nudism is allowed.
If you have not already done so, you should familiarize yourself with the concept of Freikörperkultur (FKK) in Germany. This list should help you get started. · The Freikörperkultur (FKK), or free-body cultivation, in Germany is widespread, as can be very tempting in the summer months.

A survey conducted by the German holiday web site. in 2019 he found that the vast majority (60 percent) of Germans said he was totally at ease that people were partially or completely naked on the beach or anywhere.

And 40 percent said they would even support their colleagues to come to work naked.

But what should you know if you want to participate in the FKK experience, or avoid it altogether? Here are some tips:
Do: Understand the story.
The acceptance of public nudity dates back to the history of Germany, which could help explain why the Germans still cling to it.

The first FKK club was founded in Essen in 1898, and the first nudist beach was opened on the island of Sylt, in the North Sea, in 1920. The Nazis took strong action against naked baths and nudist associations, although they eventually relaxed Bans of naked bath in remote areas.

After the war, the German Association for Free Body Culture (DFK) was established in 1949 in Hannover, in West Germany, but the culture was more prominent in the East, where people were more secular. Therefore, it is even more likely to observe the movement today in the eastern states than in the west.

Henleaze Lake: Nude swimming, high diving and romance remembered
The history of a wild swimming club, hidden in the heart of Bristol’s suburbia, has been published to mark its 100th year.

Henleaze Swimming Club was set up in a flooded quarry in 1919 following a spate of drownings the year before.

Alumni include actor David Prowse who played Darth Vader in Star Wars.

“It’s surprising how many people who’ve lived in Bristol all their lives don’t know about it,” said Janet Cocks, 87, whose parents were founder members.

Photographs of Mrs Cocks as a child and today feature in the new book The Lake by Susie Parr.

Mrs Parr joined the club in the 1980s when it was keen for new members. Today the waiting list to join is three years long, adding to its exclusivity.

Mrs Parr is one of a group of about 200 members who enjoy swimming in the lake in winter.

“It’s not everybody’s cup of tea and yes it’s a shock when you get in but when you get out you feel fantastic,” she said.

Why naked hiking is becoming so popular
Here’s a funny anecdote. Ever since the beginning of Naked Wanderings we now and then receive messages from naturists asking us when we will organise our next nude hike. A bit surprised we always answered something like “Sorry, ehm, we’re a naturist travel blog, we don’t organise nude hikes”. After a while it became just too strange that people kept asking us about this specific naturist activity.

It became clear when we noticed that we received this question almost exclusively from German naturists. The word “wandering” in English points more towards a journey, which can be seen both physically as mentally (that’s why we picked this name for our blog in the first place). In German however, the word “wanderung” leans much more towards actual hiking. Hence the confusion. When naturists from Germany found our website, they thought we were a nude hiking club.

Which we are not of course. Although we do enjoy a nude hike once in a while. And we’re not alone, other than those caught up in the language barrier there are lots of other naturists enjoying nude hikes. What makes hiking in the buff so attractive?

The idea that naturists don’t do anything else than relaxing next to a river, baking on the nude beach or play petanque is as old as naturism itself. Only if you’ve ever been to a naturist resort you know that pretty much everything can be done in the nude. Especially when it comes to sports and entertainment. Nude yoga is becoming famous world wide, we see more and more nude volleyball tournaments and in the USA nude 5K runs are a big thing at naturist resorts.

Sometimes we don’t always understand why a certain activity becomes popular among nudists. In France, for example, at many naturist resorts it’s now possible to do nude archery. Archery of all things. We’ve never tried it, so we definitely don’t want to judge. We just hadn’t seen that one coming. What we find a lot more logical is the mix of naturism and art. Artists don’t often have many options to work with nude people. As models or in the case of body painting as canvas. For naturists on the other hand it’s a possibility to learn about art and to be included in an art work. It’s really a win win.

During the constant search for more things that can be done in the nude, another very interesting activity popped up. You’ve probably already guessed it. Nude hiking.

A revealing glimpse into Torbay Sun Club – the nudist club where members include a former headteacher and a police officer
“It’s very liberating, freeing and relaxing and has nothing to do with sex”

During the working day, healthcare worker Brett Crane blends in with society’s expectations, but as soon as he goes home, and wherever it is accepted in public places, he sheds off all of his clothes.

The 55-year-old openly admits to having been a nudist all his life and for the past eight years has been chairman of Torbay Sun Club, one of the UK’s largest naturist swim and sauna clubs.

The club, which has been running for more than 40 years, has around 120 active members who range in age from 18 into their 80s, and come from all walks of life and professions such as a retired headteacher, police officer, postman, artist and finance worker in London.

Brett, who is a logistics assistant and lives in Exeter, said: “Most members are couples, although we do have single members. We do like to keep a gender balance if we can and draw members from Exeter, Torbay, Plymouth and further afield.

“The majority are in their 50s although we do have a wide range of ages. Members come from every walk of life from blue collar right through to senior management roles and everything in between.”

There’s almost nothing you can’t do naked if you’re in this club

Everything’s better in the buff.

So says Léa Panduccio, 27, who co-founded NYC nude events group Just Naked with husband Adam Schwietert, 29, this past January.

Together, the two are encouraging nudity-loving New Yorkers to strip down for all manner of activities: playing Pictionary, listening to poetry and jazz, eating pizza, sketching live models — and, for their latest birthday-suit bash, gymnastics.

“Come roll around and embrace your inner child self with our Naked Introduction to Adult Gymnastics,” reads the description for the July 30 event.

After 20 minutes of (clothed) mingling, participants will expose themselves and practice their handstands, backbends and cartwheels in a “private space near Herald Square.” (The address is provided with ticket confirmation.)

The Joys of Sharing Naturism with Others

Remember Addie? She’s our twenty-something friend who’s not only become a fervent naturist, but quite a prolific blogger as well. She’s particularly keen on what might make naturism more alluring to people in her own demographic, as she’s clearly found it to be most liberating and rejuvenating for herself. Having come to naturism just in recent years, I think she offers timely perspective to encourage others to follow in her (naked) footsteps…

One of my greatest joys in life stems from moments in which I am lucky enough to introduce others to places and experiences that I have found meaningful; I gain great pleasure from watching someone else experience something for the first time that means a lot to me. Certainly, I would qualify naturism as a defining feature of my life through from which I derive a great amount of joy. Therefore, it naturally follows that I very much enjoy experiencing someone else’s moment of astonishment as they realize, “Wow! I’m not wearing clothes in public and it’s awesome!”

Certainly, I have not had the joy of experiencing this moment many times, as I’m fairly new to naturism, but witnessing someone experience naturism for the first time constitutes something very special for me, and I can’t wait to continue to share my love for naturism with others.

NUMBERS BARE UP Irish naturists getting kit off during heatwave weather with ‘nude meet-up’ at Dublin’s Hawk Cliff
IRISH naturists let it all hang out as they lap up the heatwave and declared: “Come and join us.”

The buff lovers gave the boiling weather the bum’s rush by getting their kit off by the sea.

Our pictures show members of the Irish Naturist Association holding a “nude meet-up” yesterday [22 July 2019] at Hawk Cliff in posh Dalkey, south Dublin.

With the country set for more sweltering sunshine today, nudie bosses stressed the importance of suncream as temperatures soared to 26°C.

And speaking to the Irish Sun last night, INA president Pat Gallagher told how they have been blessed with their bare share of new members recently — and insisted they would welcome new more recruits.

He said: “We hold events across the country on a regular basis and everyone is welcome.

“When you get the good weather, you always seem to attract the numbers.

“Our membership has been increasing in recent times. There are more and more events across the country.

Naturists take over The Alnwick Garden for a night for special event
British Naturism headed to Northumberland for a special event at The Alnwick Garden

They were greeted by a bit of a mixed bag of weather but there was definitely no covering up against the elements when a group of naturists descended on Northumberland on Saturday evening.

Members of British Naturism headed to The Alnwick Garden for a special event which saw them have full access to the visitor attraction including the chairs in the Taihaku Cherry Orchard, The Ornamental Lake, The Poison Garden, Bamboo Maze, Ornamental Garden, The Grand Cascade.

They also tucked into homemade food and fresh coffee in The Pavilion Kitchen.

While of course it still raises a few eyebrows, Naturism is perfectly legal and British Naturism has over 9,000 members with events in waterparks, campsites, hotels and art galleries in the UK.

Ahead of British Naturism’s visit The Duchess of Northumberland, who owns Alnwick Garden, said “We are quite sure the naturists will have a marvellous time.

My wife and I started this blog several years ago to give couples interested in nude recreation and social nudity a better idea of what to expect. There is a lot of bad information out there and from our experience, the reality is probably not what you’d expect. It wasn’t what we expected at first either, but what it is, we have found to be relaxing, wonderful and a great activity for the two of us. Simply put, we love our nude time together and the more couples we talk to who have experienced it usually say they wish they had tried it a lot sooner than they did.

Calgary Nude Recreation to hold clothing-optional wave pool event

A controversial nude advocacy group operating out of Calgary is putting on a clothing-optional wave pool event this week, more than a year after much public outcry over a similar planned event.

Calgary Nude Recreation has booked out a facility that includes a wave pool, hot tub, steam room, water slides and a rope swing for the event set to take place on July 7.

An event organizer who goes by the name Naked Jeff told Global news the group is “all about body-positive values and encouraging people to be comfortable in their own skin.”

Jeff also said his group believes people have the right to be shameless about themselves and be respected “regardless of what they are or aren’t wearing.”

In January 2018, Calgary Nude Recreation cancelled their first planned major swim event at the Southland Leisure Centre after the facility received a volatile threat that caused safety concerns. Petitions against the event also circulated on Facebook in the days leading up to the cancellation.

Jeff said even though the January event had to be cancelled, they have held monthly events since without seeing any threats.

Row erupts between naturists over grass damage allegations
A ROW has erupted between two groups of naturists following allegations members of the club had damaged some grass.

Lakeland Outdoor Club, which rents a field at Haverigg Haws for the use of its members, has been split in two after a number of members were thrown out of it.

One of the evicted members, Russell Davies, said he could not understand why his membership had been revoked.

“The club are saying myself and about 10 other members have damaged the grass in the field,” the 52-year-old said.

“They said because a caravan had been there it’s damaged the grass.

“They’ve come up with this trumped-up charge but we haven’t done anything; the people who are running the club want us out for whatever reason.”

Mr Davies, from Wigton, said one woman who has been barred from the club had been a member for 40 years.

‘Try it for yourself’ – naturist group defend the right to get their kit off in public
Two people have been spotted out for a walk with no clothes on in Lincolnshire this year

A naturist group has defended the right to be nude in public after two sightings of naked ramblers in Lincolnshire.

The Naturist Action Group (NAG) contacted Lincolnshire Live after an article was published about a man spotted walking naked alongside a busy road near Billinghay last month.

This came after another man was seen walking his dog along with River Witham in May this year.

The group explained that they wanted to change the way that naturism was covered in the media.

Duncan Heenan is the leader of the group.

He said: “Naked protests are becoming commonplace, such as the World Naked Bike Ride, which happens in most major cities nowadays, and judging by the almost universal good reactions from bystanders, no one seems to mind.

“However, naturism in city parks is quite likely to take off. In fact, it has already started in London, where the authorities have accepted that naturist use of Hampstead Heath is legal, and naked picnics have taken place with no problems.

“Quite a few cities on the continent have demarcated naturist areas in their parks, so why not here?”
