This will be a bracket-style competition featuring one Twister game per four players. Throwing hands, feet, limbs, and hearts into each round, we will run single elimination rounds until one winner is crowned! Let's bend over backwards to bring free yoga and mind/body programs to at-risk populations!

Register as an individual and we will connect you with three other players to create a team. Or you can register a team yourself if you already have three friends you can enlist! One team will consist of four players. 

HOW IT WORKS

There is only one person in charge of spinning the spinner for the entire tournament. Every player will be vying for the same spot on his or her mat. Each team will listen for the call, and as fast as they can, place a hand (or foot) down on the mat's colored circles. The object of the game is to put your hands and feet at different places on the mat without falling over!  If your knee or elbow touches the mat, or you fall over, you’re out. Be the last player standing to win!

1:00 - 1:50 FREE YOGA WITH JILL MCHENRY

PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED to fourth-, third-, and second-place winners for the tournament with one GRAND PRIZE going to the last person standing!
