You need to see this heart-racing AcroYoga video


If doing a handstand in the middle of a crowded yoga class or supporting yourself in crow makes your heart race—just wait ’til you watch this incredible video of (mostly) unharnessed AcroYoga, 600 feet in the air.

The clip features yogis Brian Mosbaugh and Kesley Ondine moving through a series of poses on the edge of various (very steep) cliffs. It was produced by Trimr, a water-bottle-slash-shaker brand, as a way to plug their product by taking yoga—and performance—to new heights, and showing what it means to reach Asamprajnata, a state of super consciousness.

We would probably reach that state, too, if we were doing warrior poses where the tiniest breeze could push us over the edge of a cliff. (Even yoga on a helipad took up more space.)

“It’s an exhilarating experience to have a practice of movement in a place where you stand completely vulnerable to what’s around you,” says Ondine. “You depend on every single breath and flex of a muscle to keep you away from the edge.”

The duo practiced ahead of time and Ondine credits immense trust in her partner with being able to lengthen and pose on top of a cliff—as well as the thrill of it. “Keeping your mind and heart challenged is magic,” she says. —Molly Gallagher
