Steve Irwin was one of the most unintelligent in his approach to animals with his loud manor of speaking. I told people for years he'd die in the field because he is animal stupid, just got lucky for years.

Yar (20 Jul, 2009)
Not the bride, that's for damn sure :)
Dudu (20 Jul, 2009)
I think it's supposed to be called bridGe pose, not bride pose.
Yoga Bear (23 Jul, 2009)
Confirmed that it's supposed to be "Bridge" (visit link)
man, "bride pose" is hilarious.

Jen (26 Aug, 2009) Reply
Doesn't anyone else find these pics of people in states of "drunkeness" incredibly sad? I
think it's remarkably insensitive to "poke fun" at the people in these conditions...pairing
their sad and desperate situations with yoga poses. Isn't yoga supposed to promote compassion
among other things?
Rick MG (26 Aug, 2009)
My sentiments exactly, Jen. I didn't know what I was getting into when clicking the link from
Free Will Astrology, and I'm a little disappointed in Rob Breszny. Thought he was more
compassionate than this, laughing at other people's misfortune.
yrotter (26 Aug, 2009)
I agree. Was hard to look at
KrakGHL (26 Aug, 2009)
I arrived here from Rob's horoscope column as well. Though I see and empathize with your point
that the "yoga" practitioners in the photos surely have some tough circumstances, I also see and
appreciate Rob's point as well. It is the paradox of always being able to find meaning,
inspiration, humor, and divine consequence from any situation... even if there is additional (and
often serious) baggage as well...
yoga mommy (27 Aug, 2009)
I agree. These are some pretty disturbing photos. A more proper title might be...Those who love
themselves and those who don't. Sad.
Moms (27 Aug, 2009)
To quote a basic Buddhist precept, things are what they are. These people are drunk. They are also
in compromising, and humorous, positions. Doesn't mean you can't be compassionate and find
humor both. Like scolding a child for doing something very wrong, but funny. Sounds contradictory,
Amber (27 Aug, 2009)
These people practicing Drunk Yoga are not asking us to feel sorry for them. What will you do with
the uncomfortable feelings they bring up in you? Feel bad? Change yourself? Change the world? Accept
that life is...
Redragonsfire (28 Aug, 2009)
You know I did infact find that funny. I don't do yuga but I do drink and from time to time
probable have been in 1 or 2 of those possisions. The compairacen between the two if situationally
funny and compair and contrast kind of thing. Don't read too much into it, just laugh and if
you have n=been there laugh at you self as I have.
yourasana (15 Sep, 2010)
as a practicing yogini and recovering addict... i think the pictures are hysterical. thanks but most
of us would rather not have your pity. most of us laugh with the people who are laughing... because
it's funny. it would be sad indeed if i couldn't laugh at the things i've done
while drunk, or in any other state.

beefhaze (28 Aug, 2009) Reply
"Know your limits." This is sound advice, and is appropriately applied to yoga and to
strong drink, both. Unfortunately, an accurate understanding of one's own limits can usually
be gained only by pushing beyond said limits. Often, this can be a difficult and painful process,
and especially so for yoga and/or alcohol... Therefore, I posit that these photographs do
not simply depict perfectly executed yoga postures juxtaposed with some humorously positioned and
awkwardly sprawling alcoholics, drunks and dipsomaniacs - intoxicated unto the very depths of
unconsciousness. I suggest, rather, that the above photographs show just a very few of the
many multitudes who continue to struggle through an arduous process of learning one of life's
more difficult yet invaluable lessons... to whit: "Know your limits."
