Strong As Steel, Steady as Stone

Japjeet Khalsa Blog

Each year we have a challenging Yoga competition to bring a spirit of fun and inspire the students to excel in both posture and endurance in their Kundalini Yoga practice.

The participation of each one of the students was outstanding! The first part of the competition consisted of camel pose with breath of fire, bow pose with breath of fire and 108 frogs, for all the students, girls and boys separate. Then for the second part four members of each house , two girls and two boys, intermediates and seniors, participated with holding different postures for as long as they could, stretch pose, plank pose and kundalini lotus, and doing as many sarbandande kriya as they could.

It was absolutely wonderful to see the students strong as steel and steady as stone. They were truly awesome and it was a day with such a high energy. We all felt so proud of the hard work and accomplishments of our students who practice Kundalini Yoga nearly every day.
