15 Biggest Yoga Fails
Yoga is very popular in the Western world, but the truth is, the origins of Yoga date back to sixth and fifth centuries BCE. Yoga is actually a physical, mental and spiritual practice. There are many yoga schools, but some of the best known are Hatha yoga and Raja yoga. People embraced yoga so fast because it truly helps them. Of course, many people practice it because it is popular to say that you love yoga, but generally it helps people battle stress, pain in their muscles and lack of flexibility. But we are not here to teach you yoga. We are here to show you something funnier- behold, 15 biggest yoga fails!
1. Close enough! When it comes to practicing yoga, you need to understand that you shouldn’t hurt yourself. The idea is to go slowly, until you feel uncomfortable. When you feel pain, you need to stop. That’s why yoga is so slow- so you don’t hurt yourself while trying to do the very opposite thing. This girl took another step further, and even though she had best intentions, she kind of failed.
2. Wow, kids, don’t do this at home. Or anywhere, for that matter. This yoga instructor has very high expectations when it comes to street yoga. Or maybe this was the part where she shows people what she can do with her body parts. Anyway, it is absolutely hilarious to see people who are look at her so confused. It’s like they are afraid she got tangled in her legs. And she looks like she is saying: Help, anyone?
3. Well, this looks unfortunate. This is borderline sexual assault, right there! This yoga instructor has gone a bit too far in his attempts to help these women. And it seems like he attempted a lot more! There is no need to help them like this. A nice push on the lower part of the back would be sufficient, thank you very much. If nobody sued this guy for being a yoga maniac, then we suggest you avoid his classes.
4. Yoga pants are just a part of yoga practice. When you go to yoga classes, you need something you will feel comfortable in, and yoga pants are the best solution. However, it seems like some people use the benefits of yoga pants in a very wrong way. Generally, there is no need for yoga pants outside the place where you practice. You most certainly don’t need them if they don’t suit you so well.
5. Oh, couples yoga, the ultimate way to relax with your beloved one. There is just one thing you need to know: if you never practiced yoga before, it will be a bit tricky to do it with your partner. Don’t get us wrong, we are not saying that your love can’t conquer everything, but sometimes it is better to actually know something before you decide to do it. In other words, don’t do yoga if you don’t know how. You will thank us later.
6. Yoga- you got it all wrong. This guy obviously got too tired of drinking one to many blue drinks, so he remembered what his yoga teacher told him: Whenever you feel tired of blue drinks, just do some yoga on the floor. We presume he didn’t precise what floor, or maybe it’s just not that important. What’s important in yoga is that you feel relaxed and more vibrant than ever after a session.
7. This is what happens when you practice yoga with a lot of people. Not only that you see other people’s butts and what not, you also have the honor of becoming someone’s butt on a photo. Obviously, this guy didn’t wake up that morning and thought to himself: Today I am going to pretend I have some women’s but on my shoulders. This is one very unfortunate yoga fail, but whoever took it is an artist.
8. One of the most popular yoga practices is the drunk one. Some people are just more flexible when they drink alcohol. This girl is too flexible, if we may notice. She seems like she drank just a little bit too much and she is ready to show you her moves. Unfortunately, her moves look more like a drunk spider who tries to find its legs. We just hope she didn’t fell asleep like this, because that would lead to a very painful waking up.
9. Unfortunately, some people still don’t make the difference between comfortable and see-through. You should definitely feel like nothing is between you and your relaxation, but people seem to forget that they are not alone in the room. Yoga pants are not yoga tights. This lady obviously forgot her yoga pants and she decided to stay in whatever she had under her clothes. It’s good thing she had underwear!
10. No sleeping at yoga classes! Just like meditation, yoga is not effective if you fall asleep. We guess this guy was thinking so much about his next yoga class, he got too excited and fainted. It’s either that or he fell asleep because he was drunk. Whatever the case is, he is not going to feel any better when he wakes up. On the contrary, he might need some yoga classes to get rid of that back pain he is going to feel.
11. This is also a very possible yoga fail. Unfortunately, cheap yoga tights are easily ripped up. So if you are unlucky as this lady here, you might see many things you will not be able to erase from your memory. But you know what, that’s just life. You don’t even know who has really bad taste in yoga pants until something like this happens. Fear not, though. You can take more yoga classes to get relaxed, onlythis time with a private instructor.
12. Well, they said I should be relaxed! So she was. But then, she was a bit too relaxed. This is a classic case of a morning yoga newbie. People who start doing yoga by themselves often face problems like these. Some people have cats and dogs who stop them from doing yoga, and some just can’t keep their eyes open. We are sure she had strong will, but sometimes you just need to close your eyes for a few seconds…
13. Those Instagram yogis really know how to pose, right? The only problem is, if you never practiced yoga before, you are risking to seriously injure your neck, and that’s probably not what you need. Some people just don’t realize that yoga is not a bunch of slow moves. That’s why it can be hard to do some poses, like this one for example. And usually, your butt falls on your face, so stay away from Instagram!
14. Yep, definitely close enough. You foot should definitely hit your friend’s head and her leg should definitely be on your face. Just like couples yoga, yoga in pairs can be tricky if one of you is not in good shape. In other words, if you or your friend are not flexible enough, you can expect to end up in situations like this one. Oh, and please don’t do yoga in your kitchen. It’s just not hygienic enough.
15. And finally, in order to show you how two guys can do yoga in a very wrong way, we are presenting you these two! As you can see, they have no idea what they are doing. They are practically just holding each other. The only thing is, we don’t really know how this ended. We only hope nobody fell on his head, nobody broke a neck and everybody is fine. Bromance yogis can start a whole new trend with these two.
