Rescuing galaxies far, far away from the influence of the dark side can be torturous on the body. To keep their physical and mental states balanced, our heroes Princess Leia, 3PO, R2, Luke, and Yoda regularly practise yoga.

However, it’s not just the Rebel Alliance who are in search of galactic enlightenment. Even the Galactic Empire and the dark lord of the Sith himself try their hands at some of the asanas.

Have a look at some of their yoga poses after the jump.

These illustrations were done by Rob Osborne. You can purchase Osbourne’s Star Wars Yoga as art prints on Etsy.
