I am a 58 year old Naturist (NUDIST) YOGA TEACHER and retired MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTOR (2015 was my 43rd year of martial arts practice!). I began practicing Ashtanga Style Yoga 1 year ago (but have studied various other styles of yoga over many years). I started studying yoga as a child in 1967 and began teaching in 1999. I am certified by a school in India (Delhi Yoga) and qualify for registration with the Yoga Alliance of America at the Advanced Level; I have studied under more than 200 different yoga teachers in more than a dozen different styles including Kripalu, Sivananda, Iyengar, Bikrams, Kundalini, Hatha, Pranayama, and Ashtanga. All my Ashtanga instructors here are in the direct lineage of Krishnamacharya; and have given permission for filming.
I also have an 8th Dan (Degree) MMA Black Belt (Registered with the American Federation of Jiu Jitsu) having worked up to Black Belt in four different martial arts styles (Karate, TaeKwonDo, Muay Thai, and Shintoshi); studying 12 different styles in all, including Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga, Boxing, Tai Chi, and Capoeira.
As the ANATOMY of a YOGA POSE can be experienced much better by viewing the body NAKED, some of this series is done in the NUDE (in the ancient Indian monk tradition of the Naga Sadhu style of yoga). And as a “Nudist/Naturist” myself, there might be a few other surprises as well. Enjoy!
