Yoga (Sanskrit) refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India.
Alcohol intoxication (also known as drunkenness or being drunk) is a physiological state occurring when an organism has a high level of ethyl alcohol in their bloodstream, or ethyl alcohol is otherwise causing a physiological effect.
“Drunk Yoga” is like the Taoist 69 of these two contrasting pursuits. Where structured disciplined health & spirituality meets intentional self-poisoning inarticulate inhibitionlessness. It is a doomed love affair that is both offensively repugnant and utterly rubberneckingly irresistible.
Strangely “Downward-Facing Dog” is NOT on the list–I guess I lost that bet.
The same Drunk Yoga images are popping up a lot of different places now. It’s actually unclear who posted them first, but kllproject.lv was early on (and may be the originator); the site has also continued on from the original dipsomaniacal yogic-diptychs to feature another set of drunk yoga, cat-yoga(!!), and more. See examples below…
It also probably won’t shock you that a YouTube search for “drunk yoga” guarantees minutes of schadenfreudtastic delights.
