National Survey

Thank you to all of the athletes, coaches, judges, and spectators who answered the Survey Questions. Most people were very happy with the event. The most common complaints were about the cost of travel to the event, many suggested holding future events in a larger city that is easier and cheaper to reach. People also wanted more vendors, food vendors, and there were concerns about organization and scheduling. The venue we were in, like many convention centers, does not allow outside food vendors. We will take into account all of your concerns and suggestions and keep improving the event!

2018 USA Yoga National Championship

Nationals were a great success. Congratulations to all the athletes who participated. You are all winners! See the results here. And see the videos on our Youtube page. We have a team of 31 competitors traveling to Beijing for the International Championship in December. Learn all about it here.
