15 Sexy Yoga Poses
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.
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.
15. Sukhasana (aka Easy Pose or Auspicious Pose)
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.
14. The Prayer Twist
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.
13. Crazy Advanced Yoga 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?
12. Ustrasana (aka Camel 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.
11. Navasana (aka Boat Pose)
Hey, everybody knows the downward dog, right? It’s another one of the easiest yoga poses out there, and it’s got an awesome name. But I don’t really think it’s well-known because it’s so easy, or because it’s got an awesome name. No, I think it’s familiarity has something to do with the mechanics of the pose. That’s just my hunch, though.
10. Adho Mukha Svanasana (aka Downward-Facing Dog Pose)
The upward-facing plank is another pretty easy yoga position. You make like a plank, then you face upward. It’s not rocket science. Interestingly, the woman pictured here pulling off this maneuver is anything but plank-like.
9. Upward-Facing Plank Pose
Here’s yet another pose the name of which I just couldn’t seem to find anywhere on the world wide interwebs. It looks like a variation of warrior I, though, with the primary differences being that the back knee is touching the ground and the arms are tilted and pointing back. But none of that is important. What is important is that we get to watch the afore-mentioned Brittany Trubridge do another awesome yoga pose. Good job, Brittany.
8. Virabhadrasana (aka Warrior I Pose)
Well what do you know, Carmen Electra does yoga. Who would have thought? Well, actually, I guess probably everyone would have thought, since female celebrities are now required by law to be photographed by paparazzi doing yoga. Anyway, here we have Carmen doing the rather advanced hanuman posture and looking ridiculously hot.
7. Hanumansana (aka Hanuman Pose)
This is Mu Qi Mi. She is China’s most famous yoga instructor-slash-model. Or is it model-slash-yoga instructor? Oh hell, it doesn’t matter. From her perfectly executed “forward bend pose” pictured here, you can see why she is so popular on Chinese television. Tai chi instructors beware.
6. Padahastasana (aka Forward Bend Pose)
It’s Brittany Trubridge again. This time, the world’s hottest yogi is demonstrating the half spinal twist for us. On a beach. In a sexy white bikini. Like you do.
5. Ardha Matsyendrasana (aka Half Spinal Twist Pose)
This awesome pose is called “the plough.” Really. I am not making this up. And if you have ever heard or read anything about the famous Hindu sex manual Kama Sutra, then perhaps, like me, you will suspect that the name for this position may not be an accident.
4. Halasana (aka Plough Pose)
Supermodel Christy Turlington is one of the most famous celebrity yoga practitioners out there. Thus, she’s done a number of spreads over the years that feature her doing various yoga positions. This photo here, with Christy doing the bow pose, is probably the best one she ever did, what with the wet t-shirt and all.
3. Dhanurasana (aka Bow Pose)
This is a very advanced yoga pose. If you are going to attempt it, it is essential that you wear extremely tight shorts and a sexy halter top. That way, if you fall and break your neck, you’ll be lookin’ fine (like the insanely hot young woman pictured here) when the paramedics arrive
2. One-Legged Inverted Staff Pose
I have no idea what this uncomfortable-looking yoga pose is, but I don’t care, and I doubt you care. Once again, taking the top spot on this list, is the insanely hot Brittany Trubridge. If she doesn’t make you want to sign up for a yoga class, no one will.
