Yoga Meets Pole Dancing With India’s Mallakhamb
Mallakhamb is an ancient Indian sport that combines yoga poses with the athleticism of gymnastics—all performed while perched atop a vertical wooden pole. Uday Deshpande teaches Mallakhamb in Mumbai’s Shivaji Park. Anyone who aspires to master this practice, needs to possess mental and physical strength, flexibility and a certain amount of fearlessness.
This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
