It was one of the coolest things I've covered this year.
I'm always enthralled when I cover something I could never be good at, like yoga.
But to combine that with aerial silks!
I'm always amazed at the ingenuity of people.

The silk is used to support a Linda Moore's feet at Zero-Gravity Aerial Yoga. The "silks" differ from those used by aerial artists only in the bottom, those for aerial acrobatics are open on the bottom while those used for yoga are closed, forming a hanging silk loop.
