We Are Yoga Presents: Battle Asana
Limited Capacity seats available

Battle Asana is a game created to progress the sport of yoga and the yogi lifestyle in a fun and exciting way. We Battle for our mission to spread yoga, raise awareness, and keep yogis thriving! In addition, we generate funds to support charities selected by each participating yogi.

RULES FOR BATTLE ASANA
The rules are basic. One yogi (player) sets a pose by doing a particular yoga pose of their choice. If the pose is not landed another player attempts to set a pose. Once a pose has been set (landed), the other player(s) must respond by doing the same pose in their first try. If they make it the game continues and switches to the other player’s turn. If they miss it, they get a letter, starting with Y, and player A continues setting the next posture. When a player has missed four postures, spelling Y-O-G-A, the battle is over and that players is out. No pose may be set more than once by the same person and a yogi defending on their last letter may receive two attempts at that pose. The last yogi standing is declared the winner.

Battlers:
Gloria Suen
Garland Hume
Emily Longfellow
Laura Cryan
Hargobind Khalsa
Zeb Homison
Julian Garcia
Gabriel Tavera
