Syncope/Seizure from contorting?

So,This is a rather taboo subject that no one ever talks about and I'm wondering if it a medical problem that I have or if it is more common among people who do contortion. It is also one of the reasons I don't currently do live performances. When I do an unsupported chest stand and  lift my legs off the ground to hold the pose with my legs straight in the air somewhat parallel to the floor I start to go deaf, feel weak and get tunnel vision. Everything starts to go grey. I usually just come…See More

People & Negative Commentary

Posted on February 3, 2009 at 5:03pm 7 Comments

Well as it seems several people here are overly conservative. A majority of my photos have been from lingerie photo shoots as I get paid to do this type of photo shoot. I have been getting negative comments from a few individuals about my photos, surprisingly all male commentators . I can not believe that here and now with much more disgusting and vulgar images at the fingertips of the internet people are scolding me for posting contortion photos showing what you see on the average beach,… Continue

NECCA & Hip Flexibility

Posted on February 1, 2009 at 1:40am 1 Comment

Well, I have been absent from the network for awhile. I have done another photo shoot showcasing some of my typical poses. I have also gone to VT for an intensive few days of training. In those few days I realized how horrible I am by circus standards. My hip flexibility is nowhere near what it needs to be. I can do front splits on both sides, but not a straddle. My front hip flexors are not that flexible which is why my scorpion pose looks more box like than round, I need to know if anyone has… Continue

Strength & Balance

So recently here I have been working on going into a chest stand from a bed or chair and placing my feet on my head for 15 seconds or so and then putting my feet on the ground and standing up from there. I can accomplish this only after warm up stretches. If I work out to hard then I can not accomplish the standing up part of this move as I am to tired to use my upper body strength to lift myself.

I have found it difficult to get into a chest stand position from a normal standing or… Continue

Hallo Raven,

Good luck with your training.  I am sure there will be many other female contortionists thinking about having children who will be interested in watching your progress.
