Twenty men and women, from across the metropolitan area took part in the titles where they struck postures that demonstrated their flexibility, skill, strength and endurance.

Organiser Karen Then, the WA regional co-ordinator and Bikram Yoga Victoria Park studio owner said the championships had been held for five years in other states.

Although many of this year’s competitors practise Bikram yoga, Ms Then said the championships were not ‘Bikram-centric’.

‘Around the world and interstate, many yoga practitioners from other yoga traditions, also play a part in competing in these championships,’ Ms Then said.
