Combining yoga, acrobatics, and healing arts, Acroyoga is a difficult and physically demanding activity, leading some to wonder if it should be recognized as an Olympic sport.
The unusual sport was created in 2001 in Montreal, and involves a 'Base', 'Flyer', and 'Spotter'. The Base provides support for the Flyer, who executes a series of positions while balanced on the Base. The Spotter is an observer who ensures the Flyer lands safely and who makes recommendations to the Base and Flyer regarding their form.
