A very big thankyou to a very close friend and colleague of mine from Russia for these images.
Now far be it from me to try and stereotype people from certain countries... if I had a dollar for everytime I was told that I must be a huge beer drinker (because I'm an Aussie), I'd be super rich by now!! Having said that - I don't mind an ale or two (or more). :p
A couple of other (probably inappropriate) stereotypes are that all Russians drink Vodka to excess, or that all Indians partake in Yoga for fitness and inner strength.
The following images seem to indicate that these pastimes - vodka drinking and yoga - are not necessarily mutually exclusive... I think I can almost recognise some of these people.
According to experts, doing yoga can be extremely helpful for overall body health. This is largely due to the fact that yoga poses are very natural body positions and our bodies enjoy being in such positions.
