Naked Yoga, Pilates and Meditation

In the serene landscape of Domaine de L'Eglantière, where the lush surroundings invite a profound connection with nature, many of our visitors find solace in activities that not only embrace the beauty of the outdoors but also foster a deeper connection between body and mind. Two practices that stand out in this regard are Wake up Your Body and Pilates workshops, each offering a unique journey towards self-discovery, relaxation, and well-being.


Fostering a Better Connection Between Body and Mind


Naked exercise goes hand in hand with the overarching philosophy of connecting with oneself and the surrounding environment. The absence of clothing becomes a metaphorical shedding of societal constraints, allowing practitioners to delve deeper into their practice without the distractions of external expectations.

Pilates, with its emphasis on mindful movement and breath, takes on a more profound significance when practiced in the nude. The vulnerability of being bare heightens the awareness of one's body, fostering a stronger mind-body connection. Meditation, too, benefits from the freedom of being undressed, enabling individuals to truly embrace their authentic selves and cultivate a deeper sense of inner peace.


Comfort in the Nude


Engaging in mindful activities without restrictive clothing allows for an unencumbered range of motion, promoting flexibility and comfort. Many find that the absence of clothing facilitates a more natural flow, eliminating the discomfort often associated with sweaty fabrics during physical activities. At L'Eglantière, the emphasis is on embracing your body and its natural state, fostering a sense of self-acceptance that extends beyond the physical realm.


One of the initial concerns individuals might have when contemplating naturist activities like pilates or exercise is the issue of comfort. Stripping away the layers that typically shroud us can be an intimidating prospect, but it's essential to understand that the naturist environment at L'Eglantière is founded on principles of acceptance and liberation. The warm sun and gentle breeze on your bare skin provide an immediate sense of freedom and ease.


Communal naturist workshops, such as group pilates sessions, often evolve into supportive and encouraging environments. Participants find that the shared vulnerability creates a unique bond, breaking down barriers and fostering a sense of community. The initial awkwardness transforms into a shared experience that strengthens connections, both with oneself and with others.


Moreover, the instructors at L'Eglantière are seasoned professionals who are adept at creating inclusive and comfortable spaces for all participants. Their guidance ensures that individuals, whether seasoned naturists or first-time practitioners feel supported and empowered throughout the session.


If you find that naked exercise is still one step too far out of your comfort zone, don’t worry. During our workshops, you are allowed to wear as much or as little as you prefer and it’s totally fine to wear pants or a T-shirt if you don’t feel comfortable. But we do recommend that you give it a try. Naked yoga has become a trend around the world, and a natural place like our campground is the best place to take your first steps.
