While many of us can stand upside down on our hands, or gamely support our entire body weight on our arms, doing so effortlessly and with grace is a skill only a few elite yogis possess.
This video, shot, directed, and produced by Matthew Troy, captures this exact triumph of human strength over gravity, physics, and chaos perfectly. Featuring world-renowned yoga teacher and athlete Dylan Werner, each frame in this yoga demo depicts an amazing self-mastery of energy, kinetics, anatomy, and will: something that only a true union of mind, body, spirit, and breath can achieve.
Now if this doesn't inspire you to get your ass on the mat, we don't know what will!
