Everyone needs to laugh, even us Yogini’s can not benefit from a life full of all work and no fun. Even more important than that, is the ability to see the need to laugh at oneself every now and then.

That being said, I found this YouTube video with some hysterical, asinine, original yoga poses. Apparently it is part of some YouTube fitness challenge, and I have to say that with poses like “Hugging Aunt Edna”, “Testing Pool Temperature”, “Looking Down A Hole”, “Gotta Pee”,and  “The Hasselhoff” to name just a few, I dare you to watch this video and refrain from quite literally laughing out loud.

The first twenty seconds or so are slow, but watch it in it’s entirety, laugh, have fun, and then should you feel the need to prosecute me, you may do so below. =)

The last two poses need names, and who better to help than fellow Yogi’s? Should you feel inclined, you can leave your suggestion for these pioneers on the actual YouTube page for the video-but please also list them here! I am dying to know what my friends here can come up with!!
