Game of Thrones Fans Will Love These 8 Dramatic Yoga Poses

Game of Thrones is back in its latest season, and GoT fans couldn’t be more excited! Kings and queens, death and dragons, and a constant power struggle for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros . . . the drama continues in Season 7.
 
As everyone gathers around the TV each week to watch the latest episode, why not throw some fun yoga poses into the mix? Yogis and Game of Thrones fans alike can unite under one common interest – yoga and this Golden Globe winning show. Maybe you can even do a few of these poses while you watch!
 
This article goes out to all the yogis who love Game of Thrones and want to celebrate the new season with a few dramatic yoga poses to get them in the zone.
 

Here are 8 dramatic yoga poses for Game of Thrones fans:

 

1. Warrior Two Pose with Archer Variation

warrior-two-archer-pose
This yoga pose is all about finding your power and tapping into your warrior-like strength. Add the fun archer variation to feel like a true warrior and embody the entire essence of the Game of Thrones.
 

2. Dragon Pose

dragon-pose
No surprise here! With dragons being the show’s #1 ingredient for mythical delight, any true Game of Thrones fan will appreciate and love practicing Dragon Pose. Bonus points for adding in a few rounds of Breath of Fire!
 

3. Crow Pose

crow-pose
Crows and ravens are both seen as spirit animals in the spiritual community, and these birds are also quite common in Game of Thrones. Channel Bran Stark, the Three-Eyed Crow (also known as Raven) with Crow Pose!
 

4. Goddess Pose Variation

goddess-pose
Goddess pose, or Utkata Konasana, means powerful force in Sanskrit and it’s all about strength, but this variation brings a dramatic twist! This pose will open your hips as much as it’ll make you feel like the Queen of the Iron Throne.
 

 

5. Twisted Branch Tree Pose

twisted-tree-pose
You’ll look just like a Weirwood tree from the Winterfell Woods with this dramatic expression of Tree Pose, or Vrksasana. Want to be a heart tree like the ones with carved faces in the godswoods? Bring your hands to heart center instead.
 

6. Drinking Bird

drinking-bird-pose
The theme of winged creatures continues with Drinking Bird, an elegant yet challenging variation of Chair Pose. Messenger ravens can travel long distances at top speed, which takes a lot of endurance, just like it does to stay balanced in Drinking Bird Pose!
 

7. Reclining Hero Pose

reclined-hero-pose
Which Game of Thrones character do you feel is the hero of the show (or of the kingdom)? Jon Snow is probably at the top of that list, but perhaps other characters deserve some recognition like his younger half-sister Arya for her strength and willpower.
 

8. Corpse Pose

corpse-pose
Over the seven seasons, there has been a lot of bloodshed and slain characters. It’s only fitting that we end our Game of Thrones yoga session with Corpse Pose, or Savasana in Sanskrit, which translates to final resting pose.
 
 
Enjoy your Game of Thrones season with this fun list of yoga poses to add drama (and a good stretch!) to the mix. Whatever this season brings us, we know it will be filled with action, adventure, twists and turns, and maybe we’ll even learn who will finally achieve victory over the Seven Kingdoms . . .
