Photos: Meet ‘The World’s Bendiest’ Woman

The world’s bendiest woman and record holder can effortlessly contort herself into the most improbable shapes. Russian-born Julia Guenthel, can twist herself like a snake into the most extreme poses imaginable and has broken numerous world records for her flexibility. She has been contorting herself since she was four. She is also a former gymnast who can cram herself into a 50cm squared box.

She says she does not watch what she eats to stay in such good shape but has to work out rigorously every day. Doing these poses just feels very natural to me. Sometimes it can get a bit uncomfortable if I have to hold a pose for a long time in photo shoots. But I think that’s like anyone who sits down for a long time – their muscles get stiff, she said. More photos after the cut.
