MIAMI (CBSMiami) – According to the Florida DMV, the Miami area sees over four thousand accidents a month, with each one causing traffic.

One Miami native who’s no stranger to local traffic had a different way of dealing with the stress during a major accident Wednesday.

Kristen Bjornsen was heading northbound on I-95 when she came to a complete stop.

That stop lasted for two hours so she turned her car off, took out her yoga mat in the middle of the highway and struck a pose.

“It was funny to see people’s reactions in traffic,” Bjornsen said. “There were so few people getting out, they were on their phones and angry and I just laughed and laughed out loud.”

She asked a nearby driver to snap the pic as drivers looked on.

“I was gonna make a sign that said I need gas, because I needed gas, but I got my yoga mat out instead,” she explained.

Bjornsen’s photo is already making it’s rounds on social media and she’s getting mixed reviews, but her good friends aren’t surprised and love the fact that she made light of a stressful situation.

Although not a full-blown ‘yogi’ she still sees the importance of having a zen-like attitude when you’re traveling zero miles per hour on I-95.

“I’m an enthusiast but not an expert and I’m obviously not advocating doing yoga in the middle of the road,” she said.
