Experimenting with the limits of our abilities is an important step towards creating a fully realized self. Acrobatics offers us a pathway to investigate what is truly possible with our bodies, and gives us an avenue to achieve this potential. Inverting challenges our perceptual system, and helps maintain plasticity in the brain. Orienting your internal organs in different directions also strengthens the connective tissues inside us, and helps prevent tissue deterioration. The method that we use to tackle the most challenging physical techniques can be repurposed to confront any type of challenge, making us resilient in the face of danger.
