One of the most gratifying elements of a consistent yoga practice is the ongoing realization that your body is capable of truly incredible things. But that notion is taken to new heights in acro yoga, the partner-based practice that marries traditional poses with high-flying acrobatics. While it takes a significant amount of practice to master the strength and coordination required to be an acro yogi, there are plenty of seasoned pros who can provide ample inspiration—and naturally, many of them are on Instagram.
