Yoga as an extracurricular activity?

Hello everyone, I'm really passionate about yoga and practice it frequently. Can I count this as an extracurricular activity for my college applications? Your insights would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hello! Absolutely, yoga can be considered an extracurricular activity for your college applications. However, it should only be listed on your application if it is more than an individual practice.

To make the most of it, you might want to consider taking on a leadership role or expanding your yoga practice in some way. You could volunteer as a yoga instructor at a local community center, start a yoga club at your school, or participate in a yoga training or certification program. This adds depth to your involvement and shows colleges that you're not only interested in practicing yoga but also in sharing it with others.

Best of luck with your applications!
