How to Doodle Yoga

Step 1

YOGA, Yoga, yoga… how to doodle YOGA? We want to keep this as simple and straightforward as possible. Okay, I think I’ve got an idea. Begin your Yoga doodle by drawing a three-sided box. Notice, that the vertical lines of this box are slightly curved toward the left. This is important when it comes to Yoga – as you will see in the upcoming steps. πŸ™‚ This three-sided rectangle will represent the body of our Yoga character.

Step 2

Next, let’s doodle the head of our Yoga character. For the head, use an oval shape. Don’t worry about drawing the neck of our character. Our doodle character doesn’t need a neck to do Yoga. Trust me. πŸ˜‰

Step 3

Yoga is somewhat about balance and maintaining certain postures and forms. So, to show this in our doodle, let’s focus on getting the legs of our doodle character in a bit of an awkward and uncomfortable position (for anyone who doesn’t do yoga). In the example below, I have doodled the character standing on one leg while propping the other leg on the inside of the knee (what knee you might be asking?) Our character doesn’t have any knees. Okay, I get your point. πŸ˜‰ Just ignore the knees and bend one of the legs and rest it on the side of the opposite leg. Which leg you bend makes no difference.

Step 4

For the arms, let’s place the arms all the way above the head to show a very tall and solid Yoga posture. Then use three arc shapes for the eyes and mouth. You can, of course, play around with the facial expression of our character. I was trying to go for something very serene and calming. Hopefully, they are the feelings you get when you look at the example below. πŸ™‚

Step 5

The final step is to give our doodle character some color. The colors you use are completely up to you. And there we have it. This is our visual representation of YOGA in a very simple and straightforward way. Our character in this doodle is neither male or female. But you could, if you wanted to, play around with the hair, or maybe give your character some shorts. Feel free to experiment and little, and also think of other YOGA postures you could doodle in a very simple way.
