What do you do when the lights go out in the middle of a Super Bowl game? Why, yoga of course! While we were all treated to a surprise time out IN THE DARK last night the players tried to stay in the game by stretching and yoga-ing on the field for the 30+ minute blackout (which we’ll be sure to add as a clause to our next year’s Super Bowl Yoga Game, and which, for the record, was not caused by Beyonce and her explosive performance thanks to her rockin’ yogi lead guitarist). Check out the photo highlights.
OK, so maybe it wasn’t all yoga, but there was some right stretching going on and we swear we saw some of those ballers doing a little alternate nostril breathing to stay calm. Just saying there was definitely some deep breathing out there.

After the lights came back on…
SF came out strong after a 30 minute yoga session and meditation, but the Ravens held out for the win. Congrats! Here are some players celebrating with confetti savasana angels.
Not exactly yoga, but adorable.
If you missed it, here’s Beyonce’s half time performance featuring Destiny’s Child and the purple-haired lead guitarist Bibi McGill who is a pizzazzified yogster.
She finishes in Virasana, ps.
