About Roxie: Roxie (b. 1989 in New York, NY) is a Bronx native and a New York City based Yogi. She began studying and doing yoga in 2010 after taking an undergraduate course on the history and practice. As a former dancer with a history in the performing arts she combines her love of music and dance into her practice. Dealing with anxiety tremors, low self esteem, depression and sexual trauma she believes in the healing powers of yoga, meditation and herbalism as a way of both coping with and overcoming anxiety. After sustaining several back and foot injuries from dance she has found that restorative yoga has helped her body heal after surgery. After taking her first naked yoga class in 2016 she believes that it has helped enhance her self confidence and build a stronger connection with self. She received her 200 hour certification in 2019 from Y7 Yoga. She is in pursuit of receiving her 500 hour certification in India in 2020. Her studies have focused on Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, pre natal and Hatha Yoga. She also incorporates chakra healing, affirmations, oracle readings and various genres of music into her classes.
Just Naked’s Principles – PVC
Participation: We ask that you are fully engaged at our events. Yes, getting naked is an experience in and of itself, but please arrive with curiosity and the energy to participate in the theme of the event. Another facet of participation is arriving with a clear mind. While responsible BYOB is sometimes allowed, visible intoxication is not.
Vulnerability: This Principle arose from the need to clarify the subjectivity of being naked. A woman going topless publicly, however legal it might be, is likely to arouse a negative response from most crowds. For this reason, we accept that a woman’s edge of vulnerability might mean keeping their bottoms on at our events. For men, we invite you to discover your edge of vulnerability in other ways. Perhaps you cross your arms during conversation? Uncross your arms to feel what that’s like. Maybe you’re afraid of looking stupid when you dance? Attend our Movement and Connection event to explore that fear and move beyond it. If you do not identify with the male or female archetypes, or are transitioning gender, please do whatever suits your needs. Our Builders are knowledgeable about these experiences and eager to help you.
Cohesion: For Just Naked, Cohesion means connecting with others in the spirit of openness and respect. When we do this collectively, we create social unity. In this unity, we are most effective at normalizing naked within the local and global communities. Respect means treating others how they would like to be treated. This may be difficult to intuit, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with our full FAQ.
