Can practicing yoga be considered an extracurricular activity?

I've been practicing yoga for several years and have even participated in some local competitions. Is this something that could be considered an extracurricular activity on my college applications?

Absolutely! Practicing yoga can definitely be considered an extracurricular activity on your college applications. Colleges are interested in knowing about activities that you're passionate about and that showcase your dedication, discipline, and unique interests.

Since you've been involved in yoga for several years and have participated in competitions, it shows your commitment to the activity, and that's something that would be valuable to mention on your applications. You might want to highlight how yoga has impacted your life, personal growth, or any leadership roles you've taken in your yoga community.

Just remember, it's essential to balance your other activities and interests to present a well-rounded application.
