Winnipeg’s 1st Ever Hatha Yoga Competition took place at the end of April and we are still vibrating from what a success it was!!
And man did you yogis from Stafford Street Hot Yoga REPRESENT! 6 out of the 7 men competitors, more than half of the 14 women competitors, & the single youth competitor were all from SSHY!! Not to mention all the lovely smiling faces in the crowd, thanks for showing your support!
Bikram yoga is hard as it is, but imagine being up on a stage.. with no mirror.. no heat.. out of the series.. all eyes on you.. this is not for the faint of heart! We are so proud of the courage & dedication shown by everyone who participated; you are an inspiration to us all!
We’d like to extend a very special thanks to our teacher, Todd Miller, who put in hours and hours of time and support to get everyone prepped for the competition. It couldn’t have been done without you!
And finally, a big CONGRATS to Amos Bridgman who took 1st in the Youth Division, Nolan Thiessen & Sarah Tichborne who both placed 3rd in the Men’s & Women’s Divisions, and John Gietzel who placed 1st in the Men’s Division!! John not only took the cake here in Winnipeg, but he also placed 3rd in the Western Finals in Edmonton AND participated in the Internationals in Los Angeles!
What an experience! We’re so proud of you!
