Life is a balancing act for Norwegian extreme artist Eskil Ronningsbakken. For his latest stunt the daredevil chose the Aizhai suspension bridge in central China that hangs 330 meters, or almost 1,100 feet over a canyon. The acrobat balanced on chairs, a pole and even a moving hot air balloon without wearing any safety harness. For his final stunt he even donned a blindfold. It's clear that Ronningsbakken has no fear of heights - as he has performed similar feats of acrobatics over lethal drops across the world. He says that he practices yoga, meditation, and breathing techniques to stay balanced.
