This video of Krishnamacharya practicing AcroYoga is from 1938.
Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (Nov 18, 1888- Feb 28, 1989) is often coined “The Father of Modern Yoga”.
He is one of the greatest influences of yoga in the modern world and was the Guru to B.K.S Iyengar & K. Pattabhi Jois (the father of Astanga Yoga).
Many people say “AcroYoga is not REAL yoga”. I find this video both fascinating and steeped in good evidence to show that AcroYoga has been practiced by REAL yogis for decades.
