Mallakhamb - Indian practice of pole gymnastics and rope gymnastics

In India, there are two sports called Mallakhamb, the men practice on poles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FTBrtifKYQ&feature=related, and the women practice on ropes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kr61tc34r-k&feature=related

Some of the movements will be familair to you if you have seen pole dancing or tissu, and every so often the participants pull their movement into a Yoga posture.

I feel comepletely physically inadequate after watching this!
