Asana Competitions

I can't quite recall how, but a few weeks back I stumbled upon these Youtube videos of the Asana Championships. To be quite honest, once I got over the awe of people's bodies ACTUALLY bending like that, I was a bit horrified. My teachers always talk about how your practice is your own... and NOT a competition. This seems to throw that all out the window!

Watch the videos of this years champions.

What do you think? Is this a good way to make yoga competitive, or do you believe your practice should be just that... YOURS?
