Wow, I love Kelly’s answer! But I am biased because I love Nas.
Anyways, how about Bliss.
But assess your target market, understand their interest and maybe pick something based on that criteria.
Actually, Ariadne, there is such a thing as competitive yoga! At least for the asanas. I think it’s kind of goofy because to me yoga is the journey and not the destination, but it exists nonetheless.
I am with Nancy’s last comment. But then, I am kind of a fuddy duddy about yoga. I’ve done it over 40 years and consider it not my job, but who I am.
Is this a competitive team? That is a new idea to me, as yoga is in essence about self discovery and spiritual growth, rather than competition. Like, imagine yoga at the olympics…. the one you offer the gold medal will refuse it because they will understand that we are all still learning, and that such extraneous symbols of superiority are all about letting your ego rule your self understanding.
Even if the team is a ‘demo’ team I worry that if it is a group of highly fit people standing on their hands wearing matching outfits it again sends a message about what yoga is at its core that could be problematic.
However yoga is a flexible enough discipline to allow for a variety of approaches, and as long as one’s team is knowledgeable and well trained I guess there is no harm in using a name to create community bonding and so on. I would just suggest that you probably want to choose something that relates to
1. the purpose of the community (team) you are creating
2. the individuals that make up that community (team)
3. the home base (city, or club, or organization) you represent
Make the name strong and kind and effulgent and it will represent what yoga is more clearly than something simply cute.
