“Twister is just competitive yoga”

Yoga is sometimes compared to the game of Twister.

“Twister is just competitive yoga #Iseewhatyoudidthere” was posted on Twitter by Cody Spielmaker on December 26, 2011. “Twister is just competitive yoga” was posted on Twitter by Boooooookas on August 15, 2017. “Twister is just competitive yoga” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on January 11, 2019.

“Yoga is single player Twister” is a similar saying.


Wikipedia: Yoga
Yoga (/ˈjoʊɡə/; Sanskrit: योग) is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. Yoga is one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophical traditions. There is a broad variety of yoga schools, practices, and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The term “yoga” in the Western world often denotes a modern form of Hatha yoga, yoga as exercise, consisting largely of the postures called asanas.

Wikipedia: Twister (game)
Twister is a game of physical skill produced by Milton Bradley Company and Winning Moves. It is played on a large plastic mat that is spread on the floor or ground. The mat has six rows of large colored circles on it with a different color in each row: red, yellow, green, and blue. A spinner is attached to a square board and is used to determine where the player has to put their hand or foot. The spinner is divided into four labeled sections: left foot, right foot, left hand, and right hand. Each of those four sections are divided into the four colors (red, yellow, green, and blue). After spinning, the combination is called (for example: “right hand yellow") and players must move their matching hand or foot to a circle of the correct color. The game promotes itself as “the game that ties you up in knots”.

Market Twister as “Competitive Yoga” and people would pay to join a league.  Not to mention spectators!
