Yogadorks Storm Twitter! Why are YOU a #yogadork?

in Public Display of Yoga, YD News

twitter-hashtag-yogadorkOH my goodness! It’s a twitribe of yogadorks! Just when you think you’re having a backwards bad day awesome yogitweeters go and fix you right up with a barrage of #yogadork hashtag cheer. We’re so taken by the overwhelming dorky response it’s melted our wee YD hearts, and we just had to sit here quietly with palms folded in our laps for a moment to soak it all in. (why we’re #yogadorks)

So with this outpouring of affirmations what’s the yogadorky thing to do? Post it all on YD of course!  If you’re not privy to super yogitwitter conversation we highly recommend you join the merriment. But beware, once you yogitwit you can’t quit.

Roll credits: Big YD shout outs to @skippetty who got the whole # rolling, @yoga_mydrishti who nudged it further and suggested we blog it, @evvashtangi and @reweis for being the brave yogsters to first proclaim their dorkiness and inspire others to chime in.

Behold the #yogadorks in all their glory! (as of this am)  –Read them all below or you can head on over to the official search page for live #yogadork results

Which one is your fave?

  • Too fun! And too many favourites up there. The Yoga Dork name holds up well as a hash tag, that’s either pure marketing genius or just complete #yogadork -iness. :D

  • Yay I made it onto the list! #Yogadork & proud!

  • I added my comment on twitter…..

  • My vote still goes to:

    gomelissago: I’m a #yogadork cause my Smalls remind me Pranayama is even good for Mama. Especially if I’m frustrated.

    I just love that image of a 5 and 7 year olds trying to talk their mom into doing pranayama to calm her down! Will they be #yogadork ‘s when adults. Will this #yogadork Twitterstream still be going when they are adults?

  • Technical question. How did you get this Tweet stream in chronilogical order and so neatly included in you blog?

  • admin

    Bob – Magic!
    actually copy and paste, and patient skill of a #yogadork ;)

  • Yeah, but the order. How do you reverse the order back to chronological?

  • admin

    one at a time

  • Wow. That’s dedication the #yogadork cause.

    I think it was worth it! It really reads well.

    Thanks.

  • AshtangiKali

    Very well done! Kisses to my fellow YOGADORKs

  • love it and love YogaDork!

  • ashdyogi
