From MailOnline: 61 year old Khiv Raj Gurjar has been practicing yoga since he was 13. Now he spends his mornings practicing extreme yoga on a 300 ft cliff near is home in Jodhpur, in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

“From my childhood I was passionate to do things which are extraordinary and look very dangerous,” says Khiv. “I tried magic, learned acrobatics, yoga, did cycling, played football. As I grew into my twenties I found combining yoga and cycling stunts would be something very unconventional, but also deeply challenging.”

Khiv feels that his yoga, which takes him up clock towers in crowded bazaars and to the top of ancient forts is not only soul enriching, but exciting too.

“For me, it is like when children get excited about something that they do not have any reason for,” explains Khiv. ”That is the case with me. I am crazy about performing it. And as it is dangerous so much the better.”

A natural athlete, Khiv has represented his country at a national level as a cyclist and even competed in his country’s national football league.

“In addition to my yoga and cycling I do acrobatics, bodybuilding, football, mountaineering, trekking, rock climbing. Whatever sport I played or exercise I did, I did it for my self. But my passion brought me to the top,” says Khiv.

This is photoshopped. It looks like the yoga poses are real, but not done over a cliff originally. Look at the second picture… the sun is directly behind, the rock’s shadows are on on angle, and the bike has no shadow! Cool stunts, but definitely not done over the edge of a cliff.

It’s called a camera flash, clearly not photoshopped.
