34 year old mother of 2, Karen Dempsey last night completely ignored the incredibly loud fart she let slip out during her Postnatal Yoga class.
The accidental release happened while she moved from a standing “Mountain Pose” into the “Downward Dog” position. Following the directions of the Yoga instructor at the time, she slowly began breathing deeply and relaxing. When told to exhale and release any tension and stress she have been holding, suddenly the room with filled with the noise and smell of a loud and rather long fart.
Karen was initially mortified, but decided to not respond at all in hopes that people would somehow blank out the entire incident. But unfortunately that was not to be possible, as the horrid intensity of the odour was overpowering.
One woman, who was directly behind Karen during the class, was brought close to tears as she took the brunt of the fart in the face. Although she is okay now , she says she will be making conscious efforts to not be behind Karen in future classes, to avoid and repeated incidents.
Karen left the class pretending nothing had happened, nor did any of the other women say anything to her, but once she had left, the rest of them in the class dubbed her “Fart Bitch” and will continue to call her that behind her back for the remaining 10 classes.
