Remember that scene in The Exorcist where the possessed girl spider-crawls fast down the stairs? That was hella scary! But in the eyes of a yogi, it also looks like an insane Wheel pose "walk."
This Halloween, DYY ambassadors Gordon Ogden (@gordonogden) and Kate Swarm (@kateswarm), along with their awesome friends and amazing Instagram followers, are showing us that any yoga pose can look straight up horror movie-worthy with their Halloween yoga challenge, #DawnOfTheYogi.
Anyone can join; just follow the daily theme shared by the hosts and post your themed yoga pics on Instagram using the #DawnOfTheYogi hashtag. You can get in costume, edit photos to add in Halloween effects — anything you want! To give you an idea, here are some of the creepiest photos we found from the #DawnOfTheYogi challenge.
Here's Gordon in "Creepy Rag Doll" pose
And here's Regan killing it in Karnapidasana
Alicia's take on Bound Bow is the stuff of nightmares
And Chantalle looks straight out of AHS* Freak Show in her "Hanging Dog" pose
*for those who don't know, AHS = American Horror Story
Diaz is all-out and spot on for Roadkill pose…
While Raechal takes on the 7 of diamonds pose.
Do you like your Skandasana zombie-style like Keesha?
Or killer psychopath-style like Alicia here?
Stay healthy this Halloween — skip the candy and go for Kale 🙂
That's it, folks! Here's Gabriela saying bye and happy Halloween!
There are sooo many awesomely creepy photos from the challenge, unfortunately we can't share them all. Loved the photos? Join the #DawnOfTheYogi challenge and let your yoga-loving freak flags fly, yogis!
