Today is Yoga Play Day

a yoga dance

Ok, there’s no nationally declared day…yet. So, I’m unofficially declaring Fridays, Yoga Play Day! We often take yoga WAY too seriously, so take a step back, and then a step forward, and make it fun. Clear out the dharmic cob webs and shake your yoga booty. Spark your creative tapas with energizing music and let it take over . Renew your love of yoga with creative freestyle poses and kick your own asana.

Forget the routine you could do in your sleep

Leave the DVD in the case, at least

Ditch the spa playlist

Frolic on your mat like a kid in a sprinkler

Let down your guard and do your own yoga thang

Act like you’ve just been kissed

Who cares what you look like today & every day

Your practice will arise from within

Dance through your poses

Sneak in a caterpillar instead of chaturanga

Roll back and forth as long as it takes to get a little dizzy

Get lost in the music

Get lost in yourself

Play air instruments between poses

Sing along with Gotye

Sweat & get winded

Feel the energy arise from your core

Laugh & scream at the judgmental voice in your head

Sink into frog pose, ribbit and catch flies with your tongue

Are you wearing clothes? Why?

Listen to your heart

Do the Snoopy dance

Sink into a meditative trance

Turn up the Zero 7

Do jumping jacks & twirl around

Take a bow and lay down

Don’t worry, no one’s looking

Today is Yoga Play Day!

Namaste

  1. Awesome! I love that you put in ‘snoopy dance’, I have been known to throw in a snoopy dance or two. And when I feel my class getting toooo serious, we do Commando Crawl, It requires clothing, but someone always makes a comment about underwear being optional and the giggles commence 🙂
    Then theres the pose I love to call “the honey I’m home” tee hee (aka Frog)
    Great post!

      • It’s hard to explain LOL but I will take a pic and post it this week. I was wondering what pose to offer.
        Think, pigeon with a dash of Frog and a hint of ‘thread the needle’ all from the foundation of sphinx.
