MELBOURNE - A yoga master shared some of his secrets at the Yoga Aid Challenge in Brisbane’s Botanic Gardens, performing feats of balance and strength that left many looking on in amazement.
Simon Borg-Oliver, 50, an internationally trained yoga teacher, performed many twists, turns and folds that left more than 150 yoga enthusiasts, who were present there, in awe.
One of his most awkward positions involved balancing on his head with his feet touching his head.
And he revealed that the secret to good yoga is to never over-strain.
“There’s a lot of things that people do wrongly in exercise but it’s important to build strength and flexibility without strain,” the Courier Mail quoted him as advising.
The Brisbane event was part of the Yoga Aid Challenge where thousands of yogis joined together nationally to raise money for various charities. (ANI)
