Fifteen years ago yoga was just a fringe fitness fad. Like tantric sex, the general public had only a vague awareness of yoga because it was something Sting did. Today, everyone’s doing yoga. You can find classes in every neighborhood in every city in North America, and you can buy yoga mats at your local Barnes & Noble. So, yes, yoga has definitely caught on. And it’s not hard to understand why. I mean, sure, yoga is a healthy activity that sharpens the body and opens the mind. But, for guys, it is also a great way to see women wearing hot outfits doing crazy things with their bodies. Speaking of which, check out this list. You can look at beautiful women doing stuff and learn a little yoga at the same time—not that you need an excuse to do the former.
15. Sukhasana (aka Easy Pose or Auspicious Pose)
Hey, look, it’s super hot Indian Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty doing yoga. Of course, she’s doing perhaps the easiest post there is—it’s called the “easy pose” after all—so apparently Shilpa is no yoga master. Still, she looks pretty fantastic in her tight red outfit, and I think that was probably the point of this photograph to begin with.
14. The Prayer Twist
This pose didn’t appear on any official yoga positions chart I found, but a little googling revealed that it is known as “the prayer twist.” I realize the name doesn’t really matter all that much, but I just wanted to clarify that I didn’t make it up myself. In any case, while I do recommend wearing hot silvery sports bras while doing yoga, I do not recommend doing yoga in the middle of the desert. Just seems unsafe, what with all the UV rays, scorpions, and lack of nearby civilization.
13. Crazy Advanced Yoga Pose
For the life of me I could not find the name of this yoga position. Maybe it’s not even a proper yoga position at all. But who cares? Whatever it is, it’s pretty awesome.
12. Ustrasana (aka Camel Pose)
This is called the camel pose. Doesn’t look like a camel to me, but whatever. In any case, if I had to guess, I would say this pose was probably designed with women like this in mind. I mean, minus the barbed wire tattoo from 1999, this is pretty hot, right?
11. Navasana (aka Boat Pose)
As far as I can tell, what we have here is a variation of a position called the boat pose. If anyone knows otherwise, please let us know in the comments section so we’re all set straight. Now, as for the woman pictured here, her name is Brittany Trubridge. She is quite possibly the hottest legit yoga instructor on earth, so she will be making several more appearances on this list.
