"USA Yoga is a non-profit organization formed for the purpose of developing and promoting Yoga Asana (yoga postures) as a sport."
"USA Yoga's goal is to join with similar organizations in other countries to form an international yoga federation and to qualify Yoga Asana as an Olympic sport."

I love competitive sports and I love watching the Olympics but I probably won't join this organization. Competitive yoga somehow seems an oxymoron. I agree that the competition will encourage yogis to improve their practice and entice more newcomers to yoga. But does it mean that someone who can twist herself into a pretzel is a better practitioner than one who cannot? I don't think so.
What do you think?
