My country is well known for its contortionists. In Mongolia, contortion is a traditional art form that has been passed on for generations. This is why we have the best training programs for contortion. I started to study contortion in Mongolia at eight years old. I’ve spent 30 years performing and perfecting my art. Over the past 10 years I have been teaching people, of all ages, how they can increase their flexibility. I’ve learned it’s necessary to treat each students body individually because their needs are all so different. This is why I have created my own unique program to help every individual become more flexible and reach their potential as a contortionist. We are all unique, different ages, and different pasts. However, if we do the right exercises we can all can learn the art of contortion. It is amazing how the human body can transform.
