Hi! My name is Sasha Shanti, I am body suspension artist.
Suspension on hooks

I started to practice hooks suspension in 2009. The most popular pose - «suicide» (2-4 hooks in the back), then lotus, supermen, coma, knees, chest...  Unpopular poses  are rocking horse, winged monkey, splits… Also look at ASStronaut suspension, that;s always funny! My favorite pose is — 1pt suicide and elbows.
