This was a multi activity day in Waterloo. The body positive and body confidence theme ran throughout with each of the activities providing different perspectives and opportunities to explore this area.
During the life drawing, we found out about the work of our life model, what lead her to choose it as her profession, the highs and lows of the job. We contributed our thoughts and asked questions on a range of related topics.
Lunch was delicious- home made sweet potato curry or vegetable and bean hotpot, and was followed by a fascinating talk about the influential women in naturism and the impact they have had.
During the folk session, we had poetry, a speech that was so good we wanted to hear it a second time later in the day and a song that provided us all with a cautionary tale! The craft session ran throughout and saw us creating striking pennant flags.
The day was completed by a truly blissed out yoga session where we learnt about our teacher‘s personal journey to becoming a fully qualified yoga teacher and which ended with a relaxing forehead massage for each of us.
So, yes- a grest programme of activities- but what really made it special was how open all those attending were to each and every activity and to sharing their experiences, thoughts and ideas with the group.
This was a first naturist event for about a third of the women who attended- fantastic!
