Tourist Police catch foreign tourist who outraged Thais with yoga poses at sacred sites

Tourist Police have caught up with a foreign woman who drew criticism from Thais online after she shared photos on Instagram of herself performing yoga exercises at sacred sites throughout Thailand.

On Wednesday, officers from Chiang Rai Tourist Police spoke to Andreita Levin after they received complaints from people who said the photos were inappropriate.

Mexican born Levin, had previously shared pictures of her performing various yoga poses at a number of sites including Prasat Pra Thepbidorn, Rong Sue Ten temple or Blue temple in Chiang Rai, Sukhothai Historical Park and at the Emerald Buddha.

Ms Levin, who will not be charged over the photos, has agreed to remove them after Tourist Police officers requested she delete them from her Instagram profile.

Despite the fall out from sharing the photos, Ms Levin confirmed that she intends to stay in Thailand and continue her holiday.

She soon plans to visit Chiang Mai and Phuket but told officers she will not take any more photos of her performing yoga at sacred sites in Thailand.
