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....


  1. Life is a f*#cking competition and persuading you otherwise is just another trick of gamesmanship

  2. I can be UNcompetitive faster than you.

    Un-com-pe-ti-tive... Sigh!!! That's hard to say!?!

  4. competition in general just unhinges me -- the less I have to compete for the better. yoga is one place where i can just be and if that becomes a competitive space then iama-gonna-cry. Prince of Twilight are you related to Satan? Or perhaps you are cousins to the Prince of Darkness??

  5. The only way not to have to compete is to persuade people that you have something that they want, don't understand and believe they can't do for themselves.
