Contortionist Julia Gunthel - also known as Zlata - has released a
calendar showing off her flexibility around the office

 


She is snapped operating a computer while performing a hand-stand,
delivering a presentation with her head tucked between her thighs and
even becoming a living table by bending over backwards for her boss.

 

Zlata,
the self-titled ‘Goddess of Flexibility’ produces her head-turning
calendars by contorting her body with a different theme each year (this
year was obviously eighties working girl) and previous themes have
included Marie Antoinette and domestic goddess.

She
has a rare condition which makes all her tendons extremely pliable, and
discovered her talent for contortion at the age of four.

The
5ft 9ins blonde weighs eight-and-a-half stone and spends most of her
day working out and training for shows around the world.

One of
her favourite acts is bending herself backwards at a perfect 90 degree
angle, virtually cutting herself in half so the back half of her hands
touch her feet.

Her talents also include squeezing herself into boxes just 50cm squared.

Zlata, who has ambitions to head to Hollywood to turn her hand/head/legs to acting,
has previously said: ‘Doing these poses just feels natural to me.
Sometimes it can get a bit uncomfortable if I have to hold a pose for a
long time in photoshoots.

‘But I think that’s like anyone who sits down for a long time – their muscles get stiff.
 
‘I don’t really diet but I have to train very hard to keep my muscles in shape and to be as flexible as possible.’
