Asides studios in New York and London, a fresh fitness studio in Australia has hit the headlines with its current offer of naked yoga classes for women which lasts up to two hours.

Participants are all expected to go totally naked through the duration of the lessons.

Twisting Peacock Yoga in Perth, Western Australia hopes to help women love their bodies rather than judging them.

The studio owner, Melissa Howard said, “My teacher Rosie Rees came to me about six months ago with the idea and we decided Perth was ready for it.

“It’s about empowering women to break free of all their insecurities and all of their body hang-ups and to drop all the crap about that kind of stuff.

“From booking in and knowing you’re going to be doing it and then actually doing it…you get this sense of freedom and it’s liberating. You have just done something you never thought you’d do.”

According to Mail Online, in a two hour blend of Kundalini, Hatha and Yin yoga, attendees are taken through a series of light poses, meditation and seated breathing exercises accompanied by soft tribal music.

So far, three nude yoga classes have already been held including a recent VIP session where the studio was lit up with candles and incense to aid relaxation for the participants.

The naked yoga lessons take place every three weeks with both regular and new participants of different ages, sizes and figures.

Howard added, “We are very welcoming and we chat to each of the girls about their intention and why they are there before the class.

“Everyone is quite nervous at first but within a few minutes after everyone drops their robes, everyone forgets they’re naked and by the end of it we all sit around chatting naked and no one even thinks about it.

“Quite a few ladies cry through the process because it’s such a relief.

“Some women have had these horrible body image issues for years and years and they are so proud of themselves sitting there.

“It’s all about stepping out of your comfort zone, what’s the worst that could happen? Being naked is completely normal and everybody has wobbly bits and everyone has bits they don’t like but nobody is going to be looking at you, they are focused on themselves.

“We all look beautiful. It’s candle-lit and quite dark and everyone is there with the same intentions and so supportive of each other.”

The tutor is currently working to establish a couples’ version of the classes pretty soon as they would be embarking on a tour within the country by December 2015.
