Have you ever been scared of Savasana?

Well, probably not. It’s only one of the yummiest poses there are. But these pumpkin spice men have fallen deep into Savasana and aren’t likely to make it out alive…  (cue ghostly wails ooOo)







2 ½ Cups All-Purpose Flour

1 Tsp Baking Soda

1 Tsp Baking Powder

1 ½ Tblsp Ground Cinnamon

1 Tblsp Ground Nutmeg

2 Tblsp Ground Ginger

1 Tsp Ground Cloves

½ Tsp Salt

1 ½ Cups Granulated Sugar

1 Large Egg

½ Cup Coconut Oil (slightly warm in liquid form)

1 ¼  Cup Pumpkin Puree (from the can OR scroll down to see how to make-your-own pumpkin puree)

1 Large Egg

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)


To make the Corpse Poses:

Pre-heat oven to 175 Celsius.

Use a bit of Coconut Oil to grease pan.

Combine Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, and Salt.

In a separate bowl, beat Egg and Sugar together.

Beat in Coconut Oil, Pumpkin, and Vanilla.

Combine mixtures.

Form into Corpse Poses. They can be mangled in the limbs—they’re dead!

Bake for about 15 minutes.


After corpses have cooled to death-temperature, the best part is performing the autopsy. You can determine the cause of death by dipping in red jam(loss of limb), honey and bee pollen(deadly bee sting), or just eating the ones that fell into a Savasana coma.

*To make your own pumpkin puree:

Buy a sugar pumpkin (a regular pumpkin is okay, but the smaller the pumpkin, the sweeter the pumpkin flavour).

Gut pumpkin and de-seed/de-pulp.

Cut in half and then position halves together so that the insides don’t dry out in the oven. Bake for about 45min-1hour or until a knife easily pokes through the flesh.

Peel off pumpkin skin and mash up pulp with a fork until it’s the texture of puree.

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
