Race car driver Danica Patrick recently took a little trip to the wilderness to bust out some yoga moves.

Patrick posted a photo of herself doing a handstand in the middle of a stream cutting through the woods late Thursday night.

She captioned the photo, “Took a little more bravery than I thought it would to kick up and KNOW I couldn’t fall forward. But my hot photographer @stenhousejr was patient. but that’s life right, to get the shot or to make a leap in life or work, you have to be brave and stay positive! And laugh off the falls. They are part of the joy of sticking it!”

I’m a big fan of the outdoors, but I’m not sure doing a handstand in an area where falling could result in serious injury is a smart idea.

NASCAR drivers are known for being adrenaline junkies, so a handstand in a stream probably means nothing to her. Either way, Patrick doing outdoor exercises should be a fun development to follow.
