When I was in high school, my mother started doing yoga…and I followed in her lotus steps. I was reasonably limber and wowed the kids in college. I just heard last week that one of my favorite tennis players, Leander Paes, who is from India and moves so artfully, does an hour of yoga each day. It reminded me of my youthful excursion into comfortable contortions and satisfying stretches.

So with these thoughts in mind, I noticed an article that linked to nine instagram sites of yoga practitioners who have poses way beyond anything I ever did. How about you? Think you can manage any of these? Obviously I am impressed with upside down poses…

Modern Twist On Ancient Exercise Practice

antigravity yoga

I love these pictures as well as what is going on. These students are taking part in an “antigravity” yoga class at the Om Factory in New York. “Antigravity” yoga makes use of hammocks to help practitioners gain greater flexibility, allowing for a wider range of yoga poses. Is this a modern twist on an ancient form of exercise? It sure looks good, although I am wondering how you get into those contraptions…to find out more, contact the Om Factory .
