the newest yoga trend is actually quite old. it blends the healing power of yoga practice with acrobatics.

therefore, you can really build up your strength with the practice. you also have to face your fear.

the “flying” position involves being suspended in the air by another person beneath you. this can make you feel totally out of control.

another growing yoga trend is called kundalini.

what does it mean? it translates as “coiled snake.”
