Business in brief


In a face-off of 127 regional champions from 24 states, Garland Hume, owner and chief instructor of Bikram Yoga Richmond, emerged as one of the nation's top ten at the 2015 USA Yoga National Championship competition May 3 in Binghamton, NY. Adults competing must perform a total of seven yoga postures – four compulsory and three optional – in three minutes. Postures are scored on the basis of difficulty, and judges rate contestants on how well they “achieve the maximum expression of the posture while demonstrating complete control of the body and breath,” according to championship rules. Maximum possible score is 50 points, and Hume's 48.63 score ranked her eighth among adult women. Hume has been practicing Bikram Yoga since January 2007. Bikram Yoga Richmond has two locations, in Henrico's Far West End near Innsbrook and at Stony Point.
