How to contortionists become contortionists? Do they start by doing yoga and basic stretching and work their way up to contorting themselves, or are there special excerises people do in order to become contortionists that are different from yoga?
No, Yoga literally means union. The stretches serve to dextoify the body and prepare for meditation. Contortionist are not yogi’s, likewise yogi’s are not contortionists, though to many it might appear that way.
