Upside-down yoga catches on in Oz

An unusual airborne workout revolving around a hammock hanging from the ceiling has become the latest exercise fad in Australia.

Aerial yoga, also known as anti-gravity yoga, arrived in Australia about five years ago, and practitioners say its popularity down under is skyrocketing.

The BBC's Phil Mercer visits a Sydney studio to give it a go.
