Revealed: Why I Took My Clothes Off + You Should Do The Same

I’m going to ask you to do something really silly today.  No matter how you feel about your body right now, I can promise you a good groove session in your undies (or even naked!) will have you loving and appreciating her a little extra.

Don’t be lame and close out of this tab.  Don’t be a hater and knock it without trying it.  For the loving kick in the caboose that you need, I went first…here’s my story.

The scenario:  I’m in my apartment, it’s around 7am.

I’m wearing shorts, a tank and my sneakers.  Something inside tells me to ditch the shorts and the tank, keep the sneaks and my undies. So I did.  I also popped my iPod onto the deck, and geared up Pandora to a station that made me want to shake what my momma gave me.

What came next was a lot of fun…and not a lot of thinking (which is probably why it was so much fun)…and NOT something I could make a video of and post here, or my momma would disown me 😉

Maybe you can relate…

This urge to dance around in my undies didn’t just pop up out of no where this morning.  Lately, I’ve been feeling out of touch with my feminine side and a few of my girlfriends have felt the same.  We work so hard, we put so much energy into our jobs, families and relationships (all kinds, friends, professional, romantic, all of them)-and we forget how much f*cking fun it is to be a woman and celebrate every part of what that means.

So I ordered this book I’d heard of called Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts. Without launching into an all out review, I’ll say that this woman has discovered the key to true happiness for females:  falling in love with what that means and using it to your every advantage, for you…not somebody else.

She puts a lot of emphasis on finding pleasure in every possible way and injecting it into your life, weekly if not daily, if not numerous times each day.  I’m talking all kinds of pleasure, from simple things like reading a book you enjoy, going for a walk or getting a manicure to major pampering, and putting as many of the 8,000 nerve endings on your clitoris to work as possible (she recommends lots of practice for this, by the way, lots).

Why am I telling you all of this…
Because I want you to experience the feeling I felt after my one-woman-private-dance-party this morning.  Too many of us waste a lot of our time not loving our bodies and not experiencing them either.  Size and shape don’t matter here, girls.  Sheila Kelley once told me that humans are the only species on the planet without a mating dance.  This is what we’re built for, to move to be sensual, to have curves, to be connected with our feminine energy.

    Hey Lizzie~Loved your post.
    Only species without a mating dance? That IS sad!
    It’s time to bring it back…or start the tradition.
    As a dancer, I have partaken in this ritual you speak of. A total high!
    Thanks for the reminder.
    Shake a tail feather!

    • Liz DiAlto

      I knew you were firey, Jean! Love to know this wasn’t news to you 🙂

  • Stephenie Zamora

    I love to dance around in my underwear! Doesn’t happen often, but feels awesome when it does. I’m going to check out that book… I’m right there with you feeling majorly out of touch with my feminine side. Great post! xo

    • Liz DiAlto

      Ooh, Steph. I think you’ll like it. I wasn’t so into the lingo like “sister goddess” and etc, but the info was reallly good! We can chat about it in Mexico! xo

  • Laura Yamin

    I love Mama Gena. I just graduated from her Mastery in the School of Womanly Arts. It has been by far one of the best investments I have made for myself. I have learned to love and accept my body enough that I am right now prepping to do a burlesque performance.

    • Liz DiAlto

      Get out, Laura! That is so exciting. How long was the Mastery? I bet it’s a freaking blast.

  • Denise

    I dance in my underwear all the time. Especially when I’m getting to ready to go out for a fab night on the town or a date. Although, I must admit I usually do it in heels not sneakers! 😉 I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like a million bucks and get your blood pumping! Awesome blog topic, Liz!

    • Liz DiAlto

      Why does this not surprise me Denise, next time-I try heels!

  • Nathalie Lussier

    I’ve been eyeing Mama Gena’s books, and I want to know whatcha think about them. I loooove this, and I’m totally going to give it a try. I sometimes take dance breaks during the day to change things up a bit, but I like this twist you added to it. 🙂

    • Liz DiAlto

      Nath-you my dear, of all people, who works so freaking hard could definitely benefit from harnessing what she calls, the power of the P…you can guess what P that is (I hate using the word!).

  • Allison

    I miss Zumba!!

    • Liz DiAlto

      me too!

  • Jackie, Emotional Eating Coach

    LOVE THIS! & so timely as I just read Mama Gena’s book. 🙂 What I have to say to anyone who is feeling hesitant…listen to Liz and do it anyways! I totally agree that we need to be more in our feminine energy as women, and dancing naked or following the assignments in the book are the ways to do it. Dancing is my favorite way to connect to my body and give it some love and attention. The more I connect to my feminine side, the better (& saucier) I feel…and it’s just so fun so there’s no reason not to 🙂

    • Liz DiAlto

      Thanks for this Jackie. A lot of women feel shy or silly about this. I love hearing from so many people that it’s way more exciting on the other side of those hesitations. Get em, girl!

  • Diana Antholis

    I love dancing around in my undies! I don’t do it often enough though… I choose some hot dance song of the moment and get my groove on in front of the mirror! 🙂
    I think this is why my girlfriends and I long for nights out on the town — to remember how sexy we are and to have fun. Only we don’t need the nights out for this to happen, it can happen anywhere at anytime.

  • Hadley Gustin

    Love it, Liz!  By the way, thank you for sharing the link to Mama Gena's book.  I had no idea she had a book out, but I for sure want to read it.  I could not agree more about injecting pleasure into your daily life as I find it to be some of the best medicine around for getting centered in your divine feminine energy.  Very cool story you just shared and brave of you to share it!

    • Liz DiAlto

      did you start the book yet, Hadley?
