  1. no such thing as a spiritual asana, its just used to strenthen the body and nervous sytem, nervous intregity sure.

  3. Yoga competitions have been going on for thousands of years. I do agree with you, the concept takes away from the spiritual integrity of the asanas.

  13. Totally agree that this is about competition and not about the true meaning of Yoga. Yoga is the union of body, mind and spirit. This is about competition and ego. Not to take away from this man’s poses they are truly wonderful. But let’s keep it in prospective and call it posing competition instead of YOGA.

  14. Real yoga is all about respecting your body for what it can do and appreciating your own body’s history. There is no place in yoga for competition or judgement.

  15. @shravana- yes, and thats why this is nonsense. how do you practice for such a competition? and its more to do with the mind than external acrobatics. next they should have a meditation competition and judges can look at the meditating faces and judge the winner. also they should have a prayer competition.

  18. I always thought yoga was about transcending the ego (and competetiveness)

  19. Yes, impressive, but not the most impressive display of yoga flexibility for men. I’ve seen many male ashtanga performers go far beyond what this guy can do.

  24. OK…..so this guy will live to about 120……

  25. I’ll tell you what. That is the most impressive display you will see as far as flexibility in yoga for men is concerned. His form is without a doubt flawless. Anybody who has to criticize the competition should be concerned with whether the yogi in the contest is doing HIS yoga practice. You can’t say what alright for this man. He looked quite pleased with himself at the finish. Also, he is practicing sense with drawl. by doing his sadhana with so many distractions.
