Competitive Yoga?

Hey New York Yogis,

Check out this article by Cynthia Vukets from about competitive yoga events in Toronto. Don't worry--the article addresses whether or not the competition concept goes against the ideals of yoga. From the article:

“It’s most certainly an oxymoron: competition and yoga,” laughs lithe Teshia Maher, 26, a Bikram yoga instructor and one of the organizers of the recent Eastern Canada regional yoga asana championship.

She says there are no tense rivalries among Toronto’s many yoga studios.
“It’s not really like that,” she says. “The energy is not that way.”
