who we are

 

18 November 2020 - all our events are still on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic, 

although we did manage a day trip and picnic to Lakeside, Sun 16 Aug. Keep checking for updates.

South Yorkshire Naturists are an open group of naturist enthusiasts offering events and activities in a naturist environment over South Yorkshire and the North Midlands. Whether new to naturism or a fellow enthusiast the events are open to all. There is no fee to join SYN, the only cost will be for entry to events.

 

Proof of Identity is required or BN membership – for the safety of everyone who joins us.

If you are new to naturism and you think it would help to have a face to face chat by Zoom then please say so on the Contact Us page and this is something we could arrange.

What we are about

Through encouraging people to be their most authentic selves, we promote body positivity and acceptance, alongside improving confidence and self esteem. Naked, liberated, and empowered.

 

If your first time to naturism is overwhelming or daunting, please feel free to bring a robe or towel. However, we encourage you to “GO FOR IT!” as SYN is an open and accepting platform for all people interested in naturism.

what we offer

We offer a range of activities and events throughout the year to suit everyone.

These range from trips away, swims, spa nights and workshops and we have a range of varying social and public events. Scroll down for a full list of our current events.

What IS Naturism

Naturism is the practice of going without clothes, 

whether that is just occasionally at a beach whilst away on holiday, at home or in your garden ( as many have during Lockdown ) or as a more general part of everyday life.

It is also the the practise of social nudity, with others, when the circumstances - and weather - permit, whether at an organised event, a swim/spa or club or beach or resort.

what ARE THE BENEFITs of NATURISM

Naturism is healthy, sensible - who wants to wear clothes when the weather is hot – and great fun!

It also “promotes wholesomeness and stability of the human body, mind, and spirit.”

There is a tremendous sense of calm, relaxation and wellbeing that being a Naturist brings, particularly when among such friendly, like-minded folk. 

Naturists believe that baring all helps with stress relief, improved self-esteem and a positive body image/body acceptance. When we shed our clothes we also shed the constraints of social status, that by which we are often judged.

Naturists make no such judgements and simply get to know the true person within.

We also realise that the human body is to be celebrated for its rich diversity, not held as an object of shame.

Any naturist will tell you that to be truly in touch with nature, to feel the air, the sun and the water on bare skin, is one of the most life affirming and amazing experiences one can have. In fact, once you have swum without a costume, you will never go back – we believe they are pointless.

Naturism is a non-sexual environment, there is nothing lewd or inappropriate going on (this would be as unacceptable as in a clothed situation), and as such it is great for the whole family.

The children of naturist parents encourage their kids to appreciate bodies as part of their natural environment who then grow up with a greater awareness of the human body. In fact Naturism offers something of an antidote to the unhealthy yet pervasive images of the ‘perfect body’ with which they are continually confronted and which can cause so many body hang-ups in later life.

Our Lanzarote 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom home is in the designated naturist village of Charco del Palo. Naturism is welcome everywhere in the village, though we all wear a coverup when visiting our local supermercado! There are two restaurants in the village that are often naturist and a new naturist pub, Lili’s, opening soon. We are a small seaside village where naturists walk around, hike, sunbathe, swim and snorkel in the wonderful sea pools. We don’t have a beach, but there are lots of sandy rock shelves around the sea pools for sunning.

We want to share our home with other naturists so we offer to you from April thru October. We are part of a small 10 home complex, with a huge pool. We have terraces east and west and sun chairs. The home is fully furnished for all your cooking and relaxing desires. We ask that you contribute to our running costs only and cleaning.  Get in touch with us on Lanzarote35543@gmail.com and we can send you more pix and info! 

​​

H&E has been in existence in various forms since 1902, according to recent research by the editor. It is the oldest naturist magazine in the world, and is the leading monthly title aimed at naturists and all those who enjoy any aspects of their lifestyle without the restrictions of clothing. H&E originally stood for “health and efficiency”, the theory being that continued exposure to the sun and air, in combination with a good diet and regular exercise, was beneficial to health and made the body work more efficiently. Nowadays, naturism is more of a lifestyle choice with much less importance placed on the perfect body image – and more emphasis on travel, sunbathing, naked activities and, most of all, fun.

Our Values & FAQ

We understand that the world of naturism can be quite daunting, so we promote a relaxed atmosphere, body positivity, body acceptance, increasing self-confidence and centring on ourselves to be who we really are; liberated and unashamed.

 

People of all creeds regularly join us from as far as Manchester, Cumbria, Burnley, Newcastle, Hull, Nottingham, Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate, Sheffield, even Dublin! 

 

Contact us if you wish - southyorkshirenaturists@gmail.com . We will do all we can to help and reassure you. But the best advice we can offer is - just do it. You really will wonder why you hesitated so long.

FAQs

Does it hurt? 

No. After the first 30secs, you will wonder why you had been so worried.

 

How many people go to an event? 

We average 20, we have had as many as 44 and a few as 9.

 

What do I need to bring with me? A smile, a £1 coin for the locker, flip-flops, a towel to sit on in the sauna and on the chairs and to dry off when you get changed at the end of the evening.

 

Do I have to be naked? Ideally yes, however, we do appreciate that at certain times people may feel more comfortable when covered. You could wrap a towel around you or wear a robe if that would make you feel more comfortable. Although it will get very wet in the steam room.
