[DISCLAIMER: The video below contains moving images of God’s glory. If you are uncomfortable looking at naked men and women (some with tattoos!!!) demonstrating yoga, please do not press play or continue reading any further.]
First, this is the exact kind of thing I find myself wanting to support. Second, do you know how many re-phrasings I needed to go through so as not to unload an awful pun on your sweet sweet ass with that sentence? (“…I find myself wanting to get behind,” …I find myself wanting to stand up for,” …I find myself wanting to salute,” I find myself wanting to purple nerple,” ad infinitum).
The reason I dig this sort of thing is because I can trust it. I certainly trust it a hell of lot more than Kelly Morris becoming a “shaman.” Why? ‘Cause it’s hard enough lying with your clothes on, never mind while your schlong is out there blowin’ in the wind. In general, penises do not lie. They also do not fib, bend the truth, equivocate, or bear false witness. I trust penises the same way I trust radical fundamentalist Christian propaganda. You can always bet your money on hardline Christian fundamentalists totally “living their truth.”
I mean, that’s gotta amount for something, right?
The thing that gets me about this video (and to some degree public nudism in general, which I actually LOVE), however, is that whenever people do something public that normally requires clothing sans clothes, they act as if there’s nothing socially peculiar about this. We saw this same nonchalance in the “Yoga Undressed” video we wrote about a while back, which, unsurprisingly, continues to be one of our top posts. Doing yoga naked as if I’m not doing yoga naked is like me inviting a bunch of people over for dinner and then sitting down at the table with a live octopus on my head pretending like I’m just a person eating pasta. Of course, I am just a person eating pasta—a person eating pasta with a live octopus gracing my head.
…and believe public clothing requirements to be more or less total BS, and should have no baring on the great majestic humanimal.
But, I also believe that just because something is inherently “natural” in the wild does not make it inherently not hilarious in society. Which is all just to say that I wish nudists and naturists doing nudist and naturist things didn’t play the naiveté card so often. Some naked dude in Times Square being all, “What? Is there something strange about the way I am not dressed?”
Then again, maybe I’m just nit-picking, revealing myself to the world as someone who thinks about naturism way too much. Anyway, the list of characters in this trailer is truly f’ing EPIC.
There’s the guy doing (from the looks of it) straight up Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan kriyas, as can be seen here…
There’s also the taking-it-a-bit-too-serious lady….
The not-taking-it-serious-enough “bird squawk” lady….
The “graceful ballet pose” lady….
The hot guy sneaking a peek….
The two ladies playing reverse airplane….
The hippy girl doing things that hippy girls should forever continue to do….
Fuck. I actually LOVE this video. I love nudists and I love their nudist ways. We need to convince adventure yogi, CHAZ MAGNUM, to roll up on one of these sessions and report back. Doooo it! Doooo it! Doooo it! Doooo it! Doooo it!
Thanks to an illustrious reader for the vid.
