Organizer: Yoga Sports Association Australia
From the Organizer: YSAA is developing educational programs, rules and regulations so that the necessary competitive skills can be understood and mastered by competitors, coaches, judges, administrators and yoga studio operators. Successful competitors will need to achieve mastery of physical strength, stamina, balance, flexibility, breath and concentration.
YSAA believes that the practice of yoga and Yoga Asana is beneficial for the physical and mental health of all practitioners – children, teens, adults and seniors. Increased awareness of the sport of Yoga Asana will encourage existing practitioners to sharpen their skills through training, dedication, and devotion to the sport, and will inspire new practitioners to begin a practice which leads to a healthier and happier life.
Today, YSAA sponsors an Annual National Championship. This event is open to entrants from any yoga school or style and all are encouraged to participate. To borrow an ancient phrase, ‘the paths are many, the sport is one.’
