Leap of Faith

The more yoga you do, the more you start seeing it everywhere.

Like here, in Ivan Ukhov, a high-jumping Olympian.

Spine arched like a bow.

Flying high with ease and grace.

Ivan's in a deep backbend, for sure.

But the true beauty is his faith -

flying headfirst, backward, eyes closed, 

all in hopes clearing the bar.
