Kentucky Theatre hosting yoga championship this weekend

They've been training for two years, and this weekend, 15 athletes from Kentucky, Alabama, and Tennessee will gather in Lexington for the South Regional of the Yoga Asana Championship.

The event is taking place at the Kentucky Theatre from 9 a.m. until noon Saturday.

Organizers say the competitors will demonstrate five compulsory and two optional poses from the traditional series of 84 hatha yoga poses, also known as asanas.

Judging will be based on balance, strength, flexibility, well-paced timing, and appropriate breathing in the postures.

Competition is broken down into male and female categories, and the first and second place finishers of both categories will be entered into the USA Yoga Championship next year in Los Angeles.

Tickets for the South Regional of the Yoga Asana Championship are $5 at the door, and $3 online at kentuckyyoga.com.
