Yoga has never looked as fun as it does in Janelle Monáe's new video


Our chakras have never felt as aligned as they do after watching Janelle Monáe’s new video for “Yoga.” In anticipation for her label’s upcoming compilation albumWondaland Presents: The Eephus, the banger is a departure from Monae’s usual soulful and heavily instrumental stylings.

Though there’s minimal mat-work happening here, the music is club-worthy and we’re really feeling Janelle’s new unbuttoned style.

Please let floor-length ponytails become the new thing we’re all doing.

She’s so advanced she’s floating off the ground in heels!

So maybe this isn’t yoga at all, and maybe the song would be more fitting in a Zumba class — Plus the rap is objectively pretty wack:

She did that yoga
She did that yoga
Lookin for my loafers man
I woke up in a toga

Excuse me? … The song is the perfect spring-to-summer transition jam, so let’s just let her do her:

Watch the video and remember to really pay attention to your breaths as you deep inhale in — and out:
