Bikram Yoga Studio Yoga Championships
The 6th Annual Bishnu Charan Ghosh Cup Yoga Georgia Regional Competition was hosted by the "Bikram Yoga Studio" in Marietta and what an exciting event it was! Bikram Yoga Marietta's deepest wish is to gain enough support for these yoga competitions throughout the world so that Yoga will gain Olympic status in the 2012 Games.
15 competitors in two divisions, mens and womens, performed a sequence of five compulsory postures and two elective postures in a three minute time period. Going over time results in automatic disqualification. Points are also lost for falling out of a pose or attempting a 2nd time.
Three National certified judges from out of state scored each contestant on stability, stillness, grace, smoothness, execution, degree of difficulty, body proportion and over all performance. The winners in both the women's and men's division will go on to the National Finals in Los Angeles February 2009. In addition to the competition, the event opened with a welcome reception, mingling, shopping, massage and health services by "Elysium Spirit" along with viewing the goods and services donated for the silent auction.
