Naked in Motion was featured on Medical Daily in an article by Janissa Delzo. Delzo tried out one of our Naked! Yoga and Pilates classes and wrote about her experience. Instructor Willow told Medical Daily what our practice is all about: “It’s about taking a personal, internal, emotional journey to confront the things you feel about yourself, and the way you feel when you are so vulnerable around so many people.” Check out the full article here!

New student Deborah from The Observer wrote about her first experience in class in a really beautiful, inspiring story about a woman's struggle with a heart condition, and what she learned after attending a Naked in Motion class. She says it best: "If I’d felt painfully naked during my month of wearing the Holter monitor, as if my insides were suddenly revealed for the world to see, when I was actually naked in a class full of other equally naked bodies, I felt protected, anonymous. A naked body is just a body. It has no signposts, no way to identify its wealth, health or inner brokenness. We were all just humans, moving and breathing in space and time."
