Digambara is a Sanskrit term which may be translated as,‘sky clad'.
It is one of the many names of Shiva, the Adi Guru (first teacher) of yoga. To those speaking English, that may mean ‘naked’, but there is a very interesting difference between the two concepts.
Digambara doesn't mean ‘naked’; it means you are wearing the cosmos. Instead of closing one’s self off with clothing, defining one’s self with name brands or cultural iconography, digambaras are clad in infinity, defined by nothing save limitless possibility.
An ancient practice stretching back beyond the Vedic age into time immemorial, it offers the people of today an opportunity to embrace their bodies as they are, defying cultural inhibitions, while also working to maximize it's potential and realize the true nature of Self.
A combination of physical exercises (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayamas), hand gestures (murdras), vocalizations (mantras), visualizations (yantras), and relaxation and mediation techniques purify and tonify us, creating more firmness and suppleness in both the body and mind.
