Striking a yoga pose has won Malaysian Adriana Zuleika Azmi shopping vouchers worth RM 5,000 ($1,432) that she can spend with award-winning television personality Aznil Nawawi.

A participant had to walk into a Ogawa firm outlet and take a picture with any of the Ogawa products.

She struck a yoga pose on the Ogawa ezShape machine to win the grand prize in a contest, NST Online said on Monday.

It did not specify which of the asanas from yoga, the system of mental and physical rejuvenation that has its roots in India, was performed.

Yoga is popular in Malaysia despite a campaign against it by some scholars in this Muslim majority nation who sought to declare it un-Islamic.
