Badass CEO rockin’ arm balances all over New York City.

He is a mystery. I am not sure of his true profession—but my projection as is most of ours, is that he fits the CEO profile. But then he gets up on his hands and the entire story changes. 

I couldn’t pass the opportunity to make some unconventional art with him in my recent work trip to New York. He showed me the most quotidian, not often witnessed side of yoga — that of art that breaks free from social labels and convention, the everyday nonconformist off-the-mat yoga practiced in unlikely places and clothes.

He seems to have taken another CEO, Steve’s Job’s advice to heart:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
