Naked Reggae/Dancehall Combo: Beginner!

Full-Video: https://vimeo.com/140429036
Teacher: Skye
Level: Beginner
This combination is tons of fun. reggae dance and street style dances like dance hall go hand in hand because of their similarities. There is always an essence of showiness and strength. I thought it would be fun to merge these two while nude so that my naked body would be the contrast. On one hand we have the dancing style that is so strong and me, naked which is so vulnerable. The combinations in this video can be done by all ages and levels of experience. The steps take focus so pay close attention. I remove my clothes to work more freely. NYV0051D

Naked Bhangra/Eastern Dance Combo: Beginner!

Full-Video: https://vimeo.com/139531162
Teacher: Skye
Level: Beginner
What I love about my experience as a dancer is that after studying the art form I have the ability to infuse various forms of techniques in any style I wish; and you can too. In this video I have fused many eastern dance forms. The free flowing hip and hand movement in contrast with the sharpness of the side steps allows for dynamic choreography. I have broken down the movement slowly and have also sped up the timing of the execution of choreography so that it may be appropriate for beginners as well as more intermediate dancers. Being nude helps me to express my dancing in a more honest fashion; it gives me a better sense of self. NYV0051C

Though Calypso Dance does not have a universal language as in Ballet or other technical dance forms, there are some specific hand gestures, foot movements and rhythms that are known across the board in the Calypso Dance world. In this Video I break down the steps, jumps, hip and head movements. This video makes it easier for the viewer to learn combinations by getting a good feel of the movement. I remove my clothes for freedom of flow and deeper connection to my self. NYV0051B

Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Collibrina
This practice is good for those who have trouble relaxing. This video provides a guided savasana, a meditation taken lying down, relaxing the entire body by methodically engaging and releasing each part. This technique brings the practitioner into a deeper and more conscious relaxation and can be particularly helpful for those who have trouble “just letting go”. Once the video is complete, feel free to stay in your savasana as long as you like and explore other meditation techniques while lying down.

Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Collibrina
This practice is good for those who store tension in the shoulders, neck and jaw, or who have communication issues. This video will demonstrate how to practice a shoulder releasing technique affectionately known as “empty coat sleeves” as well as a pranayama technique called Lion’s Breath to open the throat. This meditation helps to ease tension in the upper back, shoulders, neck, jaw and tongue. Also, practitioners can help to resolve communication issues by noticing if the area feels strained, overworked or stiff. Making this meditation a part of your daily practice can give you a lot of insight into your fifth chakra – your communication center.

Naked Meditation in Motion 3: Breath of Joy & Laughing Yoga!

Full-Video: https://vimeo.com/136328852
(All levels)
Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Collibrina
This practice is good for those who experience depression.
This video will demonstrate how to practice a pranayama technique known as Breath of Joy and also give a short session of laughing yoga. Both techniques are designed to get the blood flowing and stimulate the third and fourth chakras – our centers of motivation and compassion respectively. Our brains are often thought of as the ultimate control center, but they also respond to feedback from our bodies – mimicking the action of laughter causes our brains to produce the same neurochemicals as it would if we were laughing spontaneously. For this reason, laughing yoga is especially helpful for people dealing with depression. -NYV0064C

This meditation is wonderful to practice first thing in the morning to bring awareness to the whole body and can also be practiced as needed throughout the day to prevent sluggishness.

Naked Meditation in Motion 1: Walking Meditation!

Full-Video: https://vimeo.com/135100189
(All levels)
Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Collibrina
This practice is good for those who have trouble sitting still. The traditional picture of meditation consists of a practitioner who is seated, silent and still. This, however, is only one of a nearly infinite menagerie of meditation styles available to practice. Newer practitioners, or those who already spend quite a bit of time sitting, may enjoy these more physically engaging meditation styles either as a precursor to seated meditation, or as a practice in and of themselves. This video will demonstrate how to practice walking meditation, encouraging practitioners to bring mindfulness to a commonplace activity that we often take for granted. We begin slowly, guiding the breath and focus until mindfulness is established, and then there is a silent period to practice maintaining that focus. We end in a short seated meditation for contrast. -NYV0064A

Lower back pain is the bain of so many people’s existence. Foam rolling is here to the rescue! In this session, we learn to address tightness in the unexpected areas of the body – the upper back and inner thighs – that pull on the muscles that connect with our lower back. Even if you aren’t experiencing pain in those two areas, working on them can ease your low back pain. We begin and end the session with a low back positioning assessment, so you can really feel the before-and-after difference that foam rolling makes.

In this session we harness the power of foam rolling to beautify and youth-ify the face. We begin with a short hand treatment to move fluid up the arms, through the neck, and into the face. We proceed with easy circular motions on the jaw and temple to stimulate collagen production and relieve tension. Finally, we engage the neck to observe how these simple movements bring ease to this often stressed area of the body. This video will teach you how to be your own face cream, with guarateed results and for free! You will need a foam roller and a tennis ball or rubber stress ball. – NYV0066B

Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Collibrina
This practice is good for getting in touch with intuition and minimizing stress. In this video, we will scratch the surface of the origin, meaning and use of the simple seed syllable Aum (also commonly spelled Om), a common opening and closing chant in yoga classes throughout the world. We begin with a few asanas to open the hips, move into chanting, and close with a brief guided meditation to help practitioners feel and internalize the concept of Aum. If you would like to continue chanting after the video has concluded, please feel free. NYV0063D

Naked Step Dance 9: Choreography B (Level: Advanced Beginner) -48D

(Level: Advanced Beginner) FULL VIDEO: https://vimeo.com/93654894  
Teacher: Skye, Student: Wara
Step Dance is a high energy, dynamic and specific form of dance.  Its takes tremendous effort on the body and mind, but is loads of fun and you can add so many dance forms into it.  In this video I added a bit of street jazz and world dance. I also used a form of mimicry; I mimicked the sliding sounds my shoes made at the end of one phrase by brushing my arms with the backs of my hands at the end of another phrase. It’s some cool choreography that can be done by all.  We remove our clothes for freedom of movement.  This combination can be slowed down or sped up to accommodate beginner to advanced beginner levels.

Naked Step Dance 8: Choreography A (Level: Advanced Beginner) -48C

(Level: Advanced Beginner) FULL VIDEO: vimeo.com/91678699 Teacher: Skye, Student: Wara Step Dance is a high energy, dynamic and specific form of dance. Its takes tremendous effort on the body and mind, but is loads of fun and you can add so many dance forms into it. In this video I added a bit of tap, modern dance and changes in levels to create some cool choreography that can be done by all. I suggest that you remove any rings or bracelets while doing this. Jewelry can be very painful while slapping the backs of your hands together or hitting your body. Although this combination can be slowed down or sped up to accommodate beginner to advanced beginner levels; I suggest practicing it many times thoroughly at a slow rate and gradually increasing speed.

Naked Step Dance 7: Combo B (Level: Advanced Beginner) -0048B

Full Video: vimeo.com/91678037
(Level: Advanced Beginner) Teacher: Skye, Student: Wara Step Dance is a high energy, dynamic and specific form of dance. Its takes tremendous effort on the body and mind, but is loads of fun. In this video Wara and I are learning a combo that has a variety of physical formations. It’s important that when you use you arms and legs to form whatever shape you are forming that the shapes are precise. eg. if your arms are straight, they need to be almost robotically straight. At time a step combination is like a song; one stepper may be assigned to maintain one rhythm with his/her body and another stepper will maintain a different rhythm to create a medley of beats while performing. We remove our clothes for freedom of movement. This combination can be slowed down or sped up to accommodate beginner to advanced beginner levels. NYV0048B

Naked Good Night Yoga 2: Evening Hatha Practice! (Beginner level) -50C

(Beginner level)
Teacher: Gray
Student: Collibrina
In this video Gray leads Collibrina through a short Yoga practice designed for the end of the day.  The practice begins with Collibrina lying and slowing her breath and moves into gentle twisting, which is the main focus of this particular sequence.  Twisting poses can help release tension that is held in the body.  It is also thought that twisting squeezes toxins out of internal organs that are washed away when the twist ends and blood rushes back into the area that was compressed.  This practice assumes that the muscles have been warmed from a day of activity and its goal is to bring the student back to a calm and relaxed state.

Naked Yin Yoga 9: Beginning! (Level: All) -0050A

(Level: All) Teacher: Collibrina
Teacher: Gray
Student: Collibrina
Yin Yoga works on the connective tissue in the body while most yoga practices affect the muscles.  It is a quiet, meditative practice in which poses are held for long periods to allow the tough connective tissue to slowly stretch.  In this practice Gray leads Collibrina through five poses over the course of a half hour (Shoelace, Seal, Seated Twist to the right and to the left and Relaxation Pose).  This is an ideal practice for the start of the day, before the body has warmed up and life becomes active and more Yang-focused.  There are important lessons to be learned from Yin Yoga about surrender and acceptance that are revealed over time.

Naked Heat Yoga 2: Heat Down! (Level: All) -0038

(All Levels) Teacher: Hope
In this series we continue to explore a way to profit from the well acknowledged benefits of practicing gentle yoga asana in heat. This practice does not require any special equipment just a well heated bathroom, or if the bathroom isn’t naturally warm, a space which can be warmed mindfully using steam from the shower and a towel. This is a floor series where traditional Hatha yoga poses like Sphinx pose, Cobra pose and Bow pose are used to strengthen the spine and improve the spine’s flexibility. This is also a relaxing series where poses are divided by Savasana. This is an excellent series to do before going to bed and contributes towards keeping the system naturally clean and energized and focusing the mind. (NYV0038)
