Get Buff in the Buff: Nude Yoga Girl's Instagram Is Your New Workout Inspiration

At first, Nude Yoga Girl sounds like a desperate cry for attention, more suitable for a men's website than for Instagram. Yet in reality, Nude Yoga Girl is actually very artistic and inspirational—and in keeping with Instagram's controversial no nipple policy. Like a lot of fitness gurus, Nude Yoga Girl uses Instagram to inspire others and empower herself through her practice.

Nude Yoga Girl has a day job and private life and so doesn't divulge her name. Her Instagram has been discovered by the media and has already drawn thousands of followers from all over the world, despite having been up for less than a year. The 25-year old yoga uses black and white and stark backgrounds to display her muscular body in various poses that are carefully highlighted and shadowed to maintain her privacy and reveal her power.

In an interview with The Cut, Nude Yoga Girl reveals that although yoga is her primary form of fitness she also enjoys other sports including running outdoors, core workouts, and dancing.

Her motivation for starting the Instagram account was a combination of her interest in both photography and yoga. As a former model, she is familiar with poor body image and wanted to do something positive.

"I want to inspire people to try yoga, and maybe they can also find body acceptance from there. Fitness is a big trend at the moment, but it's all about shaping your body. Yoga is about your inner feelings about yourself."

Don't expect Nude Yoga Girl to jump on the nude yoga class bandwagon any time soon. Despite many people being surprised at the comfort and inspiration they feel being naked surrounded by strangers, Nude Yoga Girl isn't having it. Her focus is on promoting positive body image, rather than nudity or yoga.

And in case you're wondering, Nude Yoga Girl isn't always nude. She decides before each morning practice whether or not she is in the mood for clothing.
