NOTE: This page is a daughter page of: Jokes
So hypothetically you meet an amazing girl and she happens to be a yoga instructor. You say you're going to tell her a funny yoga joke every day, but you look online and a lot of them are rubbish. I feel like half of them do the "na-ma-going-to-stay" routine, which is only half funny once.
Here I've made up some of my own joke jokes and I've (hopefully) slightly improved on the few that made me giggle a little. :)
Hope you enjoy!

Long Yoga Jokes
Yoga Pants at Church (1)
--- Long yoga joke of the day #1 ---
A man and his inappropriate dad were sitting at church to decided if it was a good place for the son to get married.
Suddenly a beautiful African American lady walk past in a tight outfit - she's wearing incredibly sexy bright blue yoga pants. I'm talking drop dead gorgeous. She bends over to pay her respects to the lord and you can see all her amazing curves thanks to her tight fitted yoga leggings.
After watching her bending over, my dad points and comments "Holy Jesus, those should be illegal in this place of worship!"
The son turns to him and says, "They were, dad, for hundreds of years. Then we had a civil war and freed them."
Credits: upjoke - this was claimed to be a true story, but I edited a little and I'm still worried it's a bit strong, but hopefully people understand that it's a humorous quip.
Three Yogis Go to Heaven (2)
--- Long yoga joke of the day #2 ---
Three yogis arrive at heaven in a single batch. God is a the Pearly gates, splits them up and says to the first: "look, we just have too many fancy yoga people in heaven these days, I can only let you in if I feel sorry for you".
The first guy says, "Well I think you should feel sorry for me!".
"I was at a yoga retreat with my wife, but I felt like she was staring a little too much at the yoga instructor in his tight pants and his toned body. I convinced myself I was just paranoid, so for my inner peace and closure I went to visit the yoga instructor in his room and I walk inside but he wasn't there. When I get downstairs, I hear loud grunting sex noises inside, and I go into a rage. The door is locked... I start kicking down the door and when I bust in I yell at my wife 'where is he!'. I look everywhere and nothing but then I noticed there are ten fingers on the railing of the balcony outside. It's him! He's trying to hide from me in just his underpants and I'm so angry that I start hitting his fingers. He pleads me to stop, but I keep going and he falls down. He's hurt, but definitely not dead... so in my growing rage I grab a heavy mini fridge from inside, and throw it down onto him. Unfortunately at this point the rage is so much I have a heart attack and die on the spot."
God looks stunned, "Well I generally don't condone murder, I'm surprised you admitted to that so readily, but I do feel sorry for you, so I'll let you in".
Then god goes to the second guy.
The second guy says, "You'll definitely feel sorry for me!".
"I had just finished teaching a yoga course, to help out all the wonderful people who come for my guidance. I drink a wonderful health smoothie, and I start doing stretches on the balcony of my hotel room in my underpants. Suddenly, when I go from warrior one pose to warrior two, I slip on my smoothie, and fall right off the edge. Luckily I have great reflexes, so I catch the railing of the room downstairs, but some crazy guy starts yelling at me. He hits my fingers, and I fall... just as I realize my beautifully toned legs are broken, the guy throws a mini fridge onto me and I'm now here.
God is almost speechless, "We generally don't like yoga instructors, but you had the worst day ever, so you can go inside".
Finally the third guy comes up. "So funny story. I was folded up lotus position and hiding in a mini-fridge.... and suddenly the fridge start to move".
Credits: upjoke - then edited by me to be more yoga focussed
Practical Yoga for Men (3)
--- Long yoga joke of the day #3 ---
Gary walks into a yoga studio and see several different groups of men of different sizes doing different warm ups. The instructor greets him.
"Welcome to our 7 step program, practical yoga for men!
Most of our men start at level 1... These men don't yet have the balance to pass the police sobriety test, but they soon over come that."
He points to a chubby group of guys attempting a one legged pose with limited success.
"At level 2, you'll have enough core strength to tie your shoelaces without needing to sit down."
He points to a less chubby group of guys doing warriors 3.
"At level 3, you'll have the stamina to sit with your kid for hours without cramping up".
He points to a group of guys in lotus position.
"At level 4, you'll be bendy enough to use and airplane restroom and seating without injuring your back."
He points to a group of skinny guys in happy baby.
"At level 5, you'll be have the physique to be shirtless and take amazing dating profile pictures that help you date fitness girls and finally get laid sometimes."
The instructor points to a group of ripped guys doing headstands and other impressive poses.
"Wow, that's really terrific! I guess nobody makes it up level 6 though?" The man says, and points at em empty area of floor.
"Oh no, we have lots of yogis reach level 6! At level 6 you reach total satisfaction. Those are the guys flexible enough to suck their own penises and they don't leave the house much."
Credits: I did this one... it was my first yoga joke, I hope it's okay
Banned from Church (4)
--- Long yoga joke of the day #4 ---
A man goes into church for confession.
"Forgive me father. For I have sinned".
"Tell me your sins Barry", says the priest.
"It's the damn yoga. I know I'm not supposed to have engage in sex before my wedding, but my finance just took up yoga a few months ago ahead of her dress fitting. The problem is she was already a blonde knockout and now she's sexier than ever before with her toned body. I already loved her curves, but this is something else... I've been practically watering at the mouth watching her practice her stretches and then finally, this morning I gave in to temptation."
"What happened Barry?".
"Well father, this morning she was trying to reach for a health juice on a very high shelf. She wasn't quite tall enough to reach it, so she's on her tippy toes stretching her arms up and she's wearing a new pair of the sexiest skin tight yoga leggings. After months of temptation the sight of her perfect yoga ass was too much. I dropped what I was holding, tore down her leggings, bent her over in front of the shelves and just went wild on her. Like a primal man. The lust was so intense we both reach screaming orgasms within minutes of hard passionate sex. I came everywhere."
"Oh gosh Barry", the priest said.... trying to compose himself. "While I appreciate your honesty, this isn't one of those half-hearted city churches, we take these things very seriously and I have no choice but to ban you and your fiancé from the church.... for life."
"Oh no priest. That's really bad news... my fiancé is going to be really upset. This is our second lifelong ban in one day.... earlier today we got banned from Whole foods."
(follow up after the punch line)
"Wait.... you mean you had sex in Whole foods."
"Yup, the produce section....... they say the lord is always watching, well so are the guys behind the security camera. They called in the cleanup crew before we were even finished."
Credits: I wrote this, but it's modified from something I heard a comedian say when I was young.
All Girl Yoga Jealousy (5)
--- Long yoga joke of the day #5 ---
Tina goes to an all girl yoga class but it's here quite competitive, and Tina is jealous of the three stunning blonde girls who shot at the front like teacher's pets and always seem completely zen during mediation. Meanwhile Tina is sweaty and panting to keep up.
So Tina waits till the end of class and approaches the female instructor, Maria.
"I know I'm supposed to reach over peace, but I'm so jealous of those three girls!"
Maria giggles. "Oh you mean Harmony, Butterfly and Rainbow?! Don't be jealous of those skinny white girl from the marina. The reason they are always zen is because they come to class early to change out of their designer dresses and take a tonne of hallucinogenic drugs."
Tina laughs too. "Oh that makes me feel way better, no wonder they seem so happy if they are high as kites! But what about you... You don't take drugs and you are always seem glowing and happy during class?"
"Oh, that's because I'm sleeping with them."
Credits: This one is mine.... Sorry it's a little naughty.
Asleep During Yoga (6)
--- Long yoga joke of the day #6 ---
A man opens his eyes the end of a yoga class and realizes everyone is giggling at him and he's the only one on the floor still. Now this is a very shy guy, so he rolls up his mat and avoids eye contact.... after everyone is gone he goes up the female teacher and says "Oh my gosh, I'm so embarrassed... I think I feel asleep during your class!".
"Oh yes you did George, right at the beginning", she smirks.
"Oh my gosh, this is really embarrassing, I was laying down that whole time?".
"Yes, but umm... well I feel like I should warn you that it gets worse".
"Oh no! I didn't.... did I snore? I've been told I sometimes snore".
"Yup, you started snoring, pretty loudly on an off, for the full two hours".
"Oh my gosh, that's so embarrassing, I probably can't show my face her for a month, I'm so embarrassed."
"Yup..... but it gets worse."
"Oh, I didn't.... did I", he whispers, "did I pass wind?".
"Yup.... a couple of times, everyone laughed each time".
George is really upset at this point... he puts his hands on his head.
"Holy cow, this is humiliating, I won't be able to come to yoga for 2 months before people forget".
"Umm.... yes, but it gets worse".
"I don't understand, what else could possibly have gone wrong?"
"Well.... let's just say that you were laying down in Shavasana position, but your little guy was doing a proud standing warrior one."
"What do you mean?".
"You had an erection George."
George is speechless. "I'm ruined."
"It gets worse.", she says. "I did try to help you when I noticed what the girls were all pointing at.... I came over to your side and try to rolled you over, but you started moaning 'Oh Susie' and 'Oh Susie you're so beautiful'. And then you just flopped onto your back again."
George turns white. "Oh this is my worst fear, I have a secret crush on Susie from the class."
"It's not very secret anymore George, everyone in the class knows."
"Oh gosh, I think I want to go home and cry. I don't think I can come back for a year."
"...... Oh it get's worse."
"How could it get any worse?!", George exclaims.
"At the end we always do three OMs, and even though you were asleep you were so excited you moaned OM louder than anyone and then I'm pretty sure you OMed in your pants."
George just stood there in shock. Sure enough he noticed his pants were wet. He sunk his head.
"Look George, I pride myself on being honest, and you probably don't want to come back to this class, because nobody here today will forget and you're always going to get laughs after what happened. I know you're super shy and I don't know if my students can focus when they're laughing."
George is at the pinnacle of shame... he holds his head really low and he starts walking out in silence.
"Wait, there is one great thing to come from this George", the instructor says.
"What could that possibly be", he says as he turns back.
"Well maybe you've never been told this before, but you have a very impressive sized warrior one. I've never seen one so big honest. And this was a two hour class. Not many men can maintain any upright pose for that long... Susie wants me to give you her number. She says you can come over to her place anytime so she can give you private workout... and that you should get more sleep now, because you won't be getting any sleep at her place."
Credits: This one is mine. I was basically imagining everything that could go wrong in yoga... I told it once to friend's and they all said "awww... that's sweet" at the end, instead of actually laughing, but that's still a positive I think. It's fun if you tell it passionately and act out just how distraught George is.
Instagram Hell (7)
--- Long yoga joke of the day #7 ---
A girl arrives in heaven, and Jesus is at the Pearly gates looking at her file.
"Yeah, I'm sorry you got hit by a bus as you left yoga, but I'm even sorry to say you didn't make it into heaven, I have to send you downstairs."
"Exxxxcuise me. You're not letting me in.", she says.
"Hey, it's not personal..... We don't mind yogis, but it says here that you were also an instagram model".
"No, I'm definitely getting in... do you have any idea who I am. I have 2 million followers".
"Lady, I have 2 billion followers, but your ancestors decided to nail me to a cross and now we have rules about who we let in. Your file says you never contributed anything to the world, you just ranted to strangers about how perfect your life is and took a bunch of photos which objectified your own body and pretended like that was a real job. You put all your time into your appearance, and not into education or developing a personality. You didn't do anything kind or positive for anyone else on the planet, you are the epitome of selfishness and vanity, and now you pay the price by going to hell."
"I'm going to call my dad, he'll fix this. And you'll be in big trouble Mister Christ."
"Pretty sure your dad is in hell too. And you're cellphone won't work here. Last time I checked it was my dad who wields all the power around here, not your dad."
The girl pauses for a second. "Okay, so like, I don't know much about this hell, can you at least describe it to me so I know how angry to be."
"Lady, you're about to be sent underground into the hottest place on earth. You'll exist in a steaming hot conditions surrounded by a bunch of emaciated undressed strangers, with lifeless eyes, devoid of any personality and struggling for breath. You're going to be yelled at and berated by an evil little man and forced into all kids of torturous positions. Sweat will pour from your body constantly. There is no temperature adjustment and it will never end."
The girl claps her hand in excitement: "Oh super perfect! That sounds great!".
"Wait, why are you excited?".
"I love Bikram yoga!"
Credits: This one is mine. I dated an influencer once - in my defense I didn't know what an 'influencer' was at that stage. Oh yes, she was beautiful, but a very shallow life and I felt like an idiot for thinking she was a real entrepreneur (which she had connived me she was) and I had flown to NY to meet her.... But then I remembered I had also gone to see NY! Ask me about my brief dating podcast career and you can hear all about it!
Australian Yoga (8)
A fun surfy bloke from Australia called Bruce, moves to California, and he's needs to get a job so he doesn't go broke. He sees an ad that says "yoga instructor needed", and he thinks to himself: "hey, I always stretch before surfing, how hard can it be?".
He walks in to apply and they say "You look pretty fit. We actually have a beginner class starting right now, if you need the money you should lead it".
"Okay great!", Bruce replies.
... "You have yoga teaching experience right?".
He lies and says "Sure".
.... "Good, but just to help you get started we're going to send Charles in to watch you. Charles studied yoga at Stanford".
Suddenly Bruce feels uneasy, but it's too late to back out. Luckily, when he gets to class, he notices a poster on the opposite side of the wall which is called "Basic Yoga Positions". It's close enough he can see what each position looks like, but not what it's called. So he asks the class to take two deep breaths and gets started in the first position, and thinking to himself "Hey, I can totally pull this off".
.... "You know Bruce, it's customary here to announce each position as you assume it", says Charles.
"Of course, I was just getting too that.... This one is called....... Man catching a cricket ball".
... Now of course Charles is a little bit of a pretentious jerk so he replies: "That's funny Bruce, I studied yoga at Stanford... and I've been to Ashrams all over the world, and I've never heard of any cricket ball pose. This pose is called warrior one".
"True blue Charles. Well we have different names for poses in Australia, but you can help me interpret them to help us all out", Bruce replies. Luckily no-one in the class has ever been to Australia, so Bruce is pretty sure he's outsmarted Charles, as he takes the next pose.
"Man pointing at horizon", he announces.
... "At Stanford and everywhere else that's just, warrior two", Charles replies but Bruce ignores him.
"Excited kangaroo", says Bruce.
... "Chair pose".
"Excited wombat", says Bruce.
... "Happy baby pose".
"Excited goanna", he announces.
... "Nope, Cobra pose", Charles replies.
"Horny dingo", says Bruce.
... "Downward facing dog".
This continues for the full hour, and the lessons is almost over, when Charles finally realizes that Bruce has he's been looking at the basic positions chart at the back.
... "Okay, so this beginner lesson is almost over, but before we leave, why don't you show us a more advanced pose Bruce?"
Bruce panics, but luckily there's an inspiration yogi poster nearby. It shows a woman doing the splits and it's called the "Monkey pose". Bruce hasn't tried the splits since he was a kid, but he's too invested now... he slowly works down, but then he's also pretty wobbly at this stage and he slips on his sweaty feet and falls down into full splits. Immediately he screams in pain.
"Oh, I broke my little dingo", he yells.
Now...... you might expect Charles, being a smug Ivy League prick, would say something smart-ass at this point. Like maybe "yup, we call it that too", or "squashed banana split". Everyone in the class is expecting Charles to say something. But god damn-it, there's a code among men when someone injures his groin this badly. Instead of being a jerk, Charles is worried Bruce really did break his dingo, so he immediately his fancy medical training kick in... he jumps in front of Bruce, bends his head right in there to look and feels for signs of a groin injury.
At the back of the class, one of the guys whispers to the guy next to him. "I'm confused, isn't he going to tell us what they call this one in Stanford?".
The neighbor leans across and replies. "Oh I went to Stanford too, so I can help... we call that one 'asking your professor for an extension'".
Credits: This one is mine. I like to make fun of Stanford students. :)
Play on Namaste and Nah-I'm-a-Gay (9)
A man stays behind after yoga class laying on his mat.... Everyone else has met and the female instructor walk up to him:
"Wow. You've been shooting me looks all session. Let me guess 3 things about you."
"What's that honey?".
Firstly, when I ask you to leave you'll say 'na-ma-going-to-stay" - thinking like that's funny, and then you'll hit on me.
Secondly, you act tough, but I have a boyfriend already, his name is Devin, he's hotter and stronger than you, he's waiting for me outside the class and and when I offer to introduce you to him, you're going to run away like a scared little boy.
Thirdly, you came to this yoga hoping to get lucky today, but you are in for a rude shock because you will never get lucky in this place."
"Oh wow, you read me like a book. That's close.
Firstly, I'm going to say 'na-I'm-a-gay', and even if I was straight I could do better.
Secondly, I'm going to tell you that I already your boyfriend.
Thirdly, the reason I'm on my back still is that I think I pulled a muscle just before class showing your him the downward dog."
Credits: I feel like there is gold in "nah-I'm-a-gay", but I haven't figured out how to turn it into a funny story. This was my closest to a funny story, but I don't find it funny... more mean than funny perhaps. Let me know if you think of something that might make people laugh.
Animal Yoga Jokes
Short Animal Yoga Jokes
I decided the market for yoga classes for animals is prime territory, but I have some open questions...
Do you think dog yoga classes have a "human poses"?
If I run a meditation and yoga studio for angry donkeys..
Should I call it "peace of ass"
If I run a yoga studio for felines.
Do you think my yogis would get go catty?
A pack of wolves are doing yoga and one of them asks another: "wow, who's the new super mindful wolf that came to class".
"That's 'Aware wolf', we stay away from him."
The Animals Invent A Human Pose
A bunch of animals rally together, because they all have yoga poses named after them and they feel it's demeaning. For instance there's a butterfly for butterfly pose... a cat, a cow, a camel, a crane, a crow, a cobra.... a dog, a firefly, a fish, a frog, an eagle, a horse, a lion, a locust, a monkey, a pigeon, a peacock, a rabbit, a swan, a scorpion and finally a tortoise.
First of all they sit in a circle and say "holy crap there are a lot of us".... These are all actual yoga poses, so they talk about how demeaning each pose it, and they demonstrate the poses.
The frog complains that "frog pose" doesn't even look like him, but actually, it kind-of does. Still, all the animals are in agreement when the peacock (representing on of the most challenging poses) says: "Well to show the humans how offensive this is, we're going to make a 'man pose', in the most embarrassing position possible.
"Oh I know this one... says the cat, I've been watching my owner, and he stands on his two back legs and throws one hand down his pants and kind of jerks is around."
So the animals all try to do human poses, but the only one that gets it successfully are the monkey and the dog.
"What do you think dog, is it demeaning enough", asks the cat.
"Oh these humans are fucking brilliant", no wonder they evolved to free up their hands!
Credits: Inspired after I saw these poses: Yoga Poses Named After Animals - sooo many! After the joke: Monkey agrees and they both decide to leave the meeting, because they've found something better to do.
Animal Yoga Sex Positions
There are (true fact) about two dozen yoga positions named after animals, and about half of them look like sex positions. The animals are not happy about this, so they decide to assemble together all the affected animals into a room... including a dog for downward dog, a cat, a cow, a cobra, a fish, a lion, a rabbit and so on.... And they present a slideshow covering each of these positions in detail and how offensive it is.
The dog is especially offended "It's confusing enough that these humans wear tight yoga pants and assume positions where they look like they are waiting to be mounted.... why do they name them after respectable members of the animal kingdom".
"It's an outrage", says Monkey.
"Wait.... Why are you here Monkey, we decided that monkey pose doesn't look like a sex position, it just looks like an idiot doing the splits and pointing into the air."
"I know, but I've been banned from watching porn in my house, and this is the next best thing."

Signs that You Are Doing Yoga for the Wrong Reasons (for Girls)

- Your second biggest reason for practicing yoga just to boost your spiritual street credit.

- You own more than one item from Lululemon.
- Your main motivation for learning a new pose is for sharing a photo to social media.
- You can't hang out with your old friend without talking about your new health lifestyle and suggesting they join your regiment.

A list of clear signs that you are doing yoga for the wrong reason (for guys).
- The only thing that helps you survive a yoga lesson is imagining each yoga position as a sex position.
- When the yoga teachers asks if you're thirsty, you tense up because you think she "found you out", but in fact she's just talking about the water fountain outside.
- Without the presence of sexy members of the opposite sex, you probably would have collapsed an hour ago, but the idea that they are watching you has you pretending you're "totally fine" and not in the least bit of pain.
- You're not sure if you chose the back of the class because you like looking at bottoms (and pretending not too), or because you don't want people to see you wobbling in the first 5 minutes.
- You feel like dropping words like "my yoga practice" into your next date will help you get laid.
- You wanted to buy tight fitting shorts and shirts, so you took up yoga as an excuse.
- You check yourself out in the mirror before, after and during each stretch.
- When you lay down at the end, your first thought is "but what if I get an erection".
- When you get dressed for yoga, you always look a second time at your sock draw and wonder if you should stuff one into your underpants.
- You update your Facebook immediately with yoga photos, because you think that will make it easier to ask to Facebook add the girls in your class. You being interested in yoga doesn't seem more friendly than the honest "I'm interested in seeing you without the yoga outfit".
