Item #: SCP-3452

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Any media with knowledge on how to perform SCP-3452 is to be tracked down and destroyed immediately. Foundation Web Crawler-3452 is currently in place on several yoga forums in order to delete any outcroppings of SCP-3452.

Foundation Agents embedded in hospitals in 43 states are to monitor amputation wards to identify new places where SCP-3452 has emerged. If a significant amount (35%) of new amputations can be attributed to SCP-3452, then local yoga studios are to be closed and investigated for breakouts of SCP-3452 under the guise of a state agency inspection.

Any yoga studio claiming to have knowledge on how to perform SCP-3452 is to be shut down immediately. This knowledge can take the form of:

  • Guidance posters
  • Verbal step-by-step instructions
  • Video featuring someone performing SCP-3452

All such media is to be destroyed. One (1) VHS copy of “How to do the Tætan Pose” is to be kept in an anomalous storage locker at Site-238 for further testing.

Any persons claiming to have awareness on how to perform SCP-3452 are to be taken into Foundation custody and interrogated. If it is determined that they learned SCP-3452 from an outside source (anything other than SCP-3452-Delta’s compulsive effect) then they are to be delivered Class-C Amnestics and returned to the general population. Those who learned it from SCP-3452-Delta’s compulsive effect are to be given compulsive resistance training then Class-B amnestics, and then returned to the general population.

Description: SCP-3452 is the designation for a series of yoga positions, which when performed, cause one of the practicer’s limb to detach at random. The disjoined limb will, in 87% of recorded cases, gain mobility, and begin to navigate to the nearest hole in the ground deeper than two meters. This has included unfilled pools, open graves, and fresh sinkholes. Further testing with a GPS tracker has revealed that limbs disappear as soon as they surpass 2.1 meters in depth, and reappear in an abandoned mine in Kitsault, British Columbia, Canada. Interviews with those affected by SCP-3452 reveal that there is no apparent correlation between ethnicity, or geographical location, though most have been isolated to urban areas as they contain the most yoga studios.

In the other 13% of recorded cases, the detached limb will cease to have any anomalous properties, other than the fact that the wounds will not bleed.

Recovery Log: SCP-3452 was discovered after Foundation Agents noticed an unusually high rate of amputees in Asheville, North Carolina. Agents stationed in local hospitals noticed that the majority of these amputees claimed that the limb detached after attending class at the local yoga studio “Spring Stone”. After detaining and interrogating the yogi, designated SCP-3452-1, SCP-3452 was discovered.
