LEARNING FROM YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE
Central to the practice of Yoga at Naked Hero Yoga is our own individual unique experience, fundamentally it is a practice of self enquiry. With this in mind we are each our most important teacher, observing how we are experiencing the different practices in different ways and at different times, to learn more about ourselves and the world around us.
Alongside the class, we advise and encourage you to also do one hour's practice at home 2-3 times a week to really feel the full benefits of Yoga, and create a strong foundation for your practice.
LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER
To balance what we learn from our own experience, at Naked Hero Yoga we also seek to learn from each other's experiences. Through partner yoga practices and a spirit of open communication, we create a space for learning from each other as well as ourselves.
ANDREW- YOUR GUIDE TO THE PRACTICES
I'm Andrew, the man behind Naked Hero Yoga and instructor for the classes, workshops and 1-1's. I've been practicing naked Yoga and Tantra for over 10 years and teaching it for over 4 years. It's a practice that has taken me on a very powerful journey, taught me many unexpected lessons and provided me with countless beautiful experiences.
I have been exploring the practices of Tantra since my mid-twenties and in my late twenties I began to practice Yoga at home from books. From there I went on to attend weekly naked yoga classes for the next 6 years, as well as participating numerous workshops, and retreats. These classes inspired me to undertake an intensive 18 month yoga teacher training diploma with the highly respected Yogacampus in London qualifying in May 2015. Since then I have been leading my own classes, workshops and retreats.
For me the real benefits of Yoga and Tantra practices are those we feel in our daily lives, in them I have found tools that have really helped me navigate the increasingly complex world we live in and have brought me experiences of profound beauty, connection and joy. Yoga teaching for me is not a career or a lifestyle, (I have a full time day job already), I choose to share the practices of Yoga and Tantra simply because it is a real pleasure to do so, there's so much beauty in these practices how could you not share them!
As the instructor at Naked Hero Yoga I am as much a participant as everyone else. My role is to act as guide to the practices so that you can learn from your own experiences, ultimately I am here to share the practices and tools that have helped me in the sincere hope that they will help you too.
Suffice to say I don't have all the answers, but I do have some very interesting questions and some very beautiful experiences to share.
