RULES FOR BATTLE ASANA BACK & FOURTH ROUND

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 do not receive a letter. If they miss it, they get a letter, starting with Y. EITHER WAY THAT PLAYER SETS 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.

RULES FOR BATTLE ASANA KNOCKOUT STAGES
The rules are similar except… 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.
