Yoga Open

The Yoga Open is an event open to the public for people of all skill levels and yoga styles to perform. Participants will perform a yoga routine that shows their flexibility, skills, and creativity, to the song of their choice. A panel of top yoga champions will judge each performance and award prizes at the end. This event is a way for yogis to connect with each other and see a diverse group of performances from yogis who have traveled from all over the world and USA. The first Yoga Open was part of the 2016 WAYcation in Austin, TX. Due to the great response, We Are Yoga will continue to host these events at different locations throughout the year.
