Yoga Undressed – review

Formerly clothes free life visit our new home

There have been many articles on the web recently about the practice of nude yoga. However, much of the clothes free yoga links to be found on the Internet are either not really about yoga (you know what I mean) or is yoga presented by models rather than genuine yoga teachers or practicitioners. Into that void comes the Yoga undressed Series of videos.
