Finally, A Yoga Emoji!

Here's some fun and some nonsense … we hear some VERY serious news. Apple has started new emojis and guess what? We finally get a yogi! Because when the prayer hands and the om symbol will not cut it.

World Emoji Day was July 17th (did you know it, no?) And the iPhone lords celebrated at Apple by announcing new fun emojis to add to our nonverbal pictographic communication. (We are in 2017, how did we get back to rock paintings and hieroglyphs?)

In addition to a sandwich and a way to express that you hate this sandwich (that's the new green emoji), plus some really social additions (if not controversial in some circles) as a woman wearing a headscarf and another breastfeeding, we finally get …

… sound the trumpets …

The "master of yoga"!

You do not need to type the word yoga anymore! (Female version and other skin tones included, we assume.)

Other word extinguishers additions include a coconut, a genie, a t-rex, a zebra, a beard, an elf and a zombie.

And this guy:

A personal fave.

Could this signal the end of time for words ??? Perhaps!


The Unicode consortium has significantly increased the number of official emoji in recent years. It approved 2,666 emoji in June, compared with 722 two years ago. He also made a greater effort to include various skin tones, flags and occupations.

😀🌎🌍🌏📆 Happy #WorldEmojiDay ! 🎉 We have new ones to show you, coming later this year! 👀👇

Set aside, poop emoji.

Remember emoji yoga ? No? Maybe you are better.
