Dear friends,I am wondering what you think about the importance of posting contortion photos which are pleasing to look at asthetically.  If you were to look at two photos of the same contortion pose…Continue

About Me
In 2012 I will be celebrating over 56 years as a professional contortionist. Being a contortionist requires commitment, dedication, skill, training and motivation. This needs to be coupled with a good diet and sensible life style habits. Recent X-rays of my spine at aged 66 show that my back is that of a person half my age. When performing and training are done correctly, nothing can beat the practise of contortion to keep the body mind and spirit at their ultimate best.
It is true to say that the medical profession are extremely interested in the fact that I am still performing my routine at a world class level at my current age, and my journey is being closely followed as it is believed this is a world first. Trainee doctors have been brought up on photos of myself which are shown as examples of flexibility in one of the best and most widely used medical text books, namely *"Hypermobility of Joints" by P. Beighton, which has been used in medical schools and universities over many past decades.
I hope you enjoy visiting my page and I hope you will visit my various YouTube Sites.
Thank you for your interest and I hope you will be truly fulfilled in your own journey through life.
Christine Danton.

Hello Christine

I just found "Quadsuit", on You Tube, it seems to be very new.

A ground acrobatic or contortion act, wearing arm stilts, even without the costume would be unique.

Awwww...thank you for such wonderful encouragement Christina!  It really helps to have such wonderful words coming from a professional contortionist like you!

Hi Christine.  Thank you for accepting my request!  It is amazing that you do contortion at your age!  I hope I will always be able to keep up with my yoga practice and maybe if I become very advanced and I can do contortion!  I took those photos in the same district where I live, but not exactly in the same area.  I live about...a little less than a mile away from the place where I took those photos:)
