10 Yoga Poses That Are Uncomfortable For Awkward People To Do In Public

1. Cow Pose

Arching my butt up in the air, when someone is most likely directly behind me, makes me feel a little awkward.

2. Garland Pose

I’m always worried I will split my pants with this one, even if they are extremely stretchy.

3. Corpse Pose

The name is pretty self explanatory, not only is this weird because I feel like I’m playing dead, but there is also the possibility I might fall asleep.

4. Standing Forward Bend

You can always see the person behind you, and if they look up and make eye contact with you, the awkward moment speaks for itself.

5. Warrior Pose On Left Foot

It’s always awkward to be the one person in the room who can’t keep balance if their life depended on it. I spend more time on two feet than one foot in this pose, which I’m pretty sure is completely wrong.

6. Locust Pose With Left Leg Up

All I can think while in this pose is, “Can I please have a pillow?”

7. Forward Bend With Hands Against Back

If there is someone in front of you, you look directly into their butt. If their is someone behind you they look directly into yours.

8. Easy Crow Pose

Looks similar to something girls would do when they have to pee in the woods, in which case there’s nothing easy about it.

9. Tortoise Pose

I’m not sure how this resembles a tortoise, but it is definitely not human to bend like that, and makes me uncomfortable when I try.

10. Fish Out Of Hero Pose

Not sure what “fish our of hero” means, but I feel awkward nonetheless. Maybe it’s the chest up, head back thing that gets to me. Namasté. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
