Please do not try this at home. For most of us the safety and sanctity of our yoga mats planted firmly on the earth is plenty thrill enough. But some people just want to see what it feels like to attempt yoga poses balancing on a two-wheeled vehicle speeding down the road. One such fellow is 40-year-old Gugulotu Lachiram, a farmer by trade, but a death-defying, yoga-posing motorcycle daredevil by heart. And he’s not even on instagram (as far as we know.)
Being a dedicated yoga practitioner and a lover of motorbikes, Lachiram thought to try his go at combining the two. With his can-do attitude, the Khammam, India native decided to give yoga on motorcycles a shot after seeing others do it on TV. Because why not, right?
“I saw people performing dangerous stunts on national television,” Lachiram told Barcroft Media. “I thought if they can do it why can’t I, so I started practicing yoga on my bike,”
“I can do many yoga postures,” he added. “Some are performed by sitting, standing and lying down. I can stand on a bike on the tank, in the middle and in the end.”
Though some friends and family are fearful for his safety, as they should be, Lachiram is already a local hero and has plans to perform for the next 10-15 years with intentions to bring his show national. Maybe he’ll even beat the Guinness World Record for most yoga poses performed on a motorcycle? Last time we checked the bar was set at 23.
