Things That Annoy Me Thursday: People Doing Yoga On An Airplane

Okay, I admit it.

I've never seen anyone do yoga moves on an airplane in person.

I have, however, seen a photo of someone doing it.


The other passengers are like, "Da crap kind of aircraft are we on?"

The lady in white on the left looks really appalled. I think it's because her leg is being touched. Or close to being touched. Look, when I'm on an airplane, I really do not want to be touched. Especially by someone bendy.

The lone man doesn't even look pleased by the firm butt. He's probably like, "I asked for a beer, not this."

Nobody looks enthralled. Maybe it's because this is Hilaria Baldwin. She's married to the dude who was in Beetlejuice. The dude who likes to shout. He and Richard Sherman could be best buddies, I think.

I would not be pleased if someone decided to do yoga on my airplane ride. For starters, I am not comfortable on a plane to begin with. I immediately think we're going to crash and wind up on an island like the one on Lost. I am not a doctor, nor can I track people, therefore I'd immediately be eaten when food begins to run scarce. If someone started bending all over the place talking about their chi or going, "Ommmm...ommmmmm" I'd be tempted to toss my peanuts at them.

The yoga chick would also make me feel badly about myself. I'd think, "I can't go down that low without something cracking," or, "How are her sunglasses staying on her head like that? Mine immediately clatter to the ground if I tilt my head too quickly."

The consensus seems to be clear.

Don't do Yoga on an airplane.

  1. Umm... of course no yoga on a plane? I love yoga, but I think that puts her and the people around her at risk... and is sort of a violation of the public space. That said, if you are stuck on a plane on the tarmac for multiple hours, I might feel differently.

  2. The picture is hysterical. I love the look of everyone around her. What's funny is that this is obviously first class and if I had paid that kind of $$$$ for an airplane seat I DEFINITELY don't want anyone putting their butt in my face.

  3. Haha who does that?! On a long flight I will get up and go by the bathroom to stretch because if I don't my ankles/feet swell up to 2x their size but just doing yoga in the aisle??! NO bueno

  4. oh my gosh - who would do that? she is even dressed for it as if it was all planned. very odd and i would be pissed. if everyone did yoga, it would be a free for all on that plane and if we all can't do yoga, no one can do yoga.

  5. never seen that before but what annoys me are screaming children. not "my ear hurts" crying children but legit brats screaming and freaking out and the parents don't give a shit but continue watching their ipad.

  6. I would be unhappy with that, too!!!
    If you have to do something sit in your seat and squeeze your butt - same idea but not invading anyone's space!!!

  7. I'm hoping she did it as a dare or joke. People are so strange!

  8. Agreed. I think you can wait to calm yourself with yoga until the plane lands. In the meantime, vodka.

  9. Agreed! If someone was waving their butt in my face to do some yoga I would not be as polite as those just giving dirty looks!

  10. I love yoga, but jeez--not in a crowded public area!! It's just rude! Also, I can't stand either that woman or her husband. They seem very self-centered. I guess this photo is further proof of that!

  11. Um, no. I'm with you: no yoga on airplanes. Unless it's something as simple as rolling your neck in your seat, but even then you have to be careful - it's so cramped ... at least in business class!

    I'm wondering what kind of view the people behind her have. I mean, that's a pretty short dress ...

  14. What the heck! I hope they took this picture as a joke and that it didn't really happen

  15. My husband makes Lost jokes every time we're on a plane and I get SO mad! But I guess they are better than a woman doing yoga...

  16. that would really, really annoy me. My first thought would be what a show off. And my next thought would be how disgusting. How gross. How disturbing. How STUPID IS THAT?!

  17. why can't miss namaste get drunk on tiny bottles of liquor like everyone else?!

    needy attention ho is needy.

  18. Ummm...no thank you! I think I'd have to bump her leg a little bit or something. If I tried to do that move my kids would be climbing all over me thinking I was giving horse rides or something!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. So is this a thing now? Like planking or something? I try to avoid trends - I guess this is the reason why.

    ReplyDelete
  20. haha!! Honestly, I would probably be cracking up if I saw someone doing that. I've been on too many long-haul flights. My main problem with flying is how excruciatingly boring it is. I even rejoice when I hear stupid businessmen flirting with cute Chinese flight attendants--at least it gives me something to listen to! :P (Though I feel sorry for the flight attendants.)

  21. Yaaaaaaaaaa, that is SO rude! Especially since this is like FIRST class. Seriously, $$ can't buy class, that's for sure!

    I used to despise children on planes but then I had 2 kids (never been on plane yet, but if I do, those ppl can suck it).

  22. Okay, so it never it occurred to me that people would actually do this. And for the record, I have no idea who that lady is. Crazy lady. But if I was there, I probably would've "Instagrammed" it too. ;)

  23. Drat. Note to self: do not do yoga on the plane home tomorrow. Got it! (hah..like I would!)

    I hope if we land on LOST island, that Desmond will be waiting for me.

  24. I even gave up on those stretching exercises they have on the card on the seat pocket. There's not enough space, and if she is in the aisle, how does the drinks trolley get through. I like doing yoga, but no one had better get between me and the teeny tiny bottle of wine I get for free!

  25. I get that Yoga is the thing now-a-days, but needing to do it on a plane just seems a little too OCD for me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm not a frequent flyer, but I agree...No yoga on planes!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I was on a plane once where a group of women were doing yoga at the back, right near the toilets. So it was mega awkward whenever anyone wanted to use the bathroom. And they were gasbagging so much I could hardly hear my movie through the headset!

    I couldn't contain my eyerolls. And I like yoga, but really there's a time and place for that!
