32 Vodka And Yoga

Vodka And Yoga

Posted on October 20, 2006 by team

It has been said that doing yoga is extremely helpful for the body health. One of the reasons for this is that yoga poses are very natural body positions and our body enjoys being in such a position, but the main problem to get this enjoyment feeling is to relief all the stress and tension in our muscles.

From the other side it’s known that vodka relaxes person to its maximum, and according to yoga one who relaxed can easily make complicated yoga exercises.

This guy proves that our body is OK with yoga.

You probably already noticed that some of the asanas from this set require a partner.

    This is one of the funniest, yet saddest things I have seen. I feel sorry for those poor men, but you are right, those look just like yoga positions! Very clever on your part.

  3. Xavi says:

    It seems that Mr.Putin & Co. also really think that getting drunk is a kind of healthy-harmless yoga, because in order to improve Russian shrinking population they only focus on raising the birth rate, while average* life expectancy for men was just 52,8 years in 2.002 (thanks, first of all, to “yoga”).

    * That’s the average!!! In some northern regions men don’t survive beyond their mid 40s (like in poorest African countries).

    Take a look at these links from World Health Organization:

    If you already heard about it million times just dismiss it, but be sure there’s plenty of people out there ignoring that nowadays Russia has such decadent features.

    Obviously there are drunken people everywhere, but no other country achieves Russian ‘outstanding’ rates.

    No wish to be a smart-ass (as you disrespectfuly call me), just trying to point out reality. Being self-critic is the first step to improve things (I doubt you really care). It looks like your choice is to follow Putin’s speech, do nothing and comfort yourself thinking that things go the same way everywhere. Shame on you.

    “but be sure there’s plenty of people out there ignoring that nowadays Russia has such decadent features.”

    Xavi: Just tell me honestly, why do you care so much about Russia’s problems that you’re putting so much effort into letting people know how “decadent” Russia is? Just give me an honest answer. I’m sure “plenty of people out there” would like to know that.
    Also, tell me what’s gonna change in those people’s minds once they know all the facts (like they don’t know them already) that you showed in your previous comment? That they’re gonna criticize (or possibly hate) Russia even more (like they don’t do that already)? Or what? What is your point? Let me know because I’m curious.

    2. Yoga is a way of life, a conscious act, not a set or series of learning principles. The dexterity, grace, and poise you cultivate, as a matter of course, is the natural outcome of regular practice. You require no major effort. In fact trying hard will turn your practices into a humdrum, painful, even injurious routine and will eventually slow down your progress. Subsequently, and interestingly, the therapeutic effect of Yoga is the direct result of involving the mind totally in inspiring (breathing) the body to awaken. Yoga is probably the only form of physical activity that massages each and every one of the body’s glands and organs. This includes the prostate, a gland that seldom, if ever, gets externally stimulated in one’s whole life.

  26. I have been doing Yoga since college and i love the way that it can relax my body. yoga is great for stress relief. *
