UPDATE: Due to Hurricane Sandy we are opening this up to Sandyasana photos. Folks stuck in your house riding out the storm you may have a little extra time on your hands. Perfect opportunity for some hunker down home yoga. We’re doing some Bridge Over Troubled Water pose here in NYC. Please be safe everyone!
And so it’s that time of year again yogi ghosts and ghouls, Halloween costume time! Get your tricks and treats out for this year’s spooky extravaganza.
It’s simple, just dress yourself up in a yoga-related or non Halloween costume, take a pose, take a picture, send us an email info(at)yogadork.com, post to our facebook page, tweet at us and we’ll count you in for the running to be 2012′s favorite Halloween Yogi! See contestant Zombiefied Cryptic Crow above for inspiration.
You have until midnight
Thursday, November 1 Sunday, November 4 to submit your photos. NOTE: please indicate if you’d like your photo to be included in the YD Gallery with your submission.
So, are there any Halloweenie poses? We asked our facebook pals in jest:
YD: What? There’s no jack-o-lantern pose?
Cheeky commenter jackie: I try to stay away from jackasanas.
Bah! ha ha.
