yoga words with friends

I have a serious problem. I, my compadres, am addicted to Words With Friends. So much so, that it might be time for a WWF cleanse. Not sure how that will work out for my brain and my fingers, so we’ll just put that idea to the side for now.

During a recent Words session, yoga brain always on and at the ready, I attempted to turn I G O R A L B into BROGA. Naturally, it was the very first thing that popped into my mind and I was determined that it work — triple word score and all. Sadly, I must say, rejection was in the cards tiles. What kind of blasphemy is this, you ask? I asked myself the same.

To this end, Zynga is the soon-to-be recipient of a letter demanding that they asking them nicely to create a WWF spinoff…


Yoga Words With Friends will include words like:

  • Om + Aum
  • Yamas, Niyamas
  • Sattva
  • Vinyasa
  • Samadhi
  • Mulabandha
  • poses in every language under the sun
  • acronyms such as: YTT, OMG (as in, “Oh my guru!”), RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation), and WTF (as in, “What the forward bend?!”)

It will also accept lengthy phrases (shifting of tiles = perfectly legal) such as:

  • Savasana is sacred
  • Practice makes pranic
  • Yogadorks unite
  • Don’t mess with the drishti
  • Yoga swagger

The game will NOT include words like:

  • can’t
  • hate
  • exclusive
  • diva
  • egomaniac
  • celebriyogi


Wanna play?

  1. I too, am a WWF addict and have often been frustrated when I haven’t been able to use words I know are perfectly legit, but that aren’t part of the standard English language.

    Sure, they accept karma and yoga, but definitely not pranayama or prakruti. Which in this yogi’s books is way messed up and out of alignment! ;)

  2. all my friends play on word w friends. im actually kinda scared to start – i cant afford to become addicted!! =D

  3. I’ve never heard of this game. I am was never good at scrabble or any word game though, always getting out the old dictionary. This is very surprising considering how much I talk.

  4. I love this game and have about 6 games going just with yoga friends! Om does work…

  5. Current Addiction: Hanging With Friends (oh my…the best of Hangman AND WWF)
