My yoga journey

Yoga on the Train Tracks

on October 15, 2015

I’m a big fan of doing yoga in random places and taking so called Yoga Selfies which I really enjoy doing in interesting and slightly odd places. However I don’t do it anywhere dangerous or stupid. This lady however seems to have decided that taking a interesting picture is more important than her and others safety. She’s now been arrested and charged with trespassing.

I have a member of my family who before he retired worked as a train driver and he once was driving a train that someone committed suicide in front of at a station and I know that it was very traumatic for him as there was nothing he could do to stop the train in time. I’m not saying that this is the same but trains come into stations quite quickly and I don’t think she’d have been able to move out the way quickly enough. Train tracks are so dangerous (yes the third rail was live at the time) and it’s such a stupid thing to do for a photo.

It reminds me of the wonderful Australian Metro video called Dumb ways to Die which is all about being safe around trains.
