Things I don't understand: Part Two

Competitive Yoga


Yup, now you can compete with a bunch of other people to be voted as having the Garurasanaor or Dandayamana-Bibhaktapada-Paschimotthanasana pose. Maybe your OM is just more friggin sonorous that everyone else's.

Want to sign up? It will cost you $100.

Read the attire rules FIRST...

Female: One or two-piece swimsuit, leotard, or exercise outfit with open arms and legs (no bikinis). The outfit should be elegant and modest.

Male: Speedo style swimsuit or tight fitting shorts.

Gals have to be elegant and modest but the guys wear a speedo?!?!? Have any of you gurus been to the beach lately?

Start strecthing and you'll be in shape for the next Charan Ghosh International Yoga Asana Championship. They are trying to make it into an Olympic Sport. I would say that would make a riveting sport. How fast can you get down into dog pose??

Why does everything have to be a competition? Om....
