1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Namas-dead", Way to Die #183, is the fourth death featured in "Think Globally, Die Locally", which aired on March 19, 2012.


A strict yoga instructor named Betty bullies and grosses out her students with her constant flatulence. After a particularly disgusting session, the entire class decides to pack up and leave. In a frenzy, and still stuck with her leg behind her head from one of her yoga positions, Betty scuttles across the yoga studio, but falls down a flight of stairs and lands facedown in a meditation pool, knocking herself out. While unconscious, she inhales enough water to drown.

"Betty was a yoga meanie by turning her class into Gas Warfare. She lost her students, but in the end, she invented a new pose...Downward. Facing. Dead.”
