Breaking up with somebody is never easy. In the tumultuous throes of a relationship’s final days, it can often feel like you’re bending over backward to try and keep it all together. All you want to do is put your head between your knees and cry.
Some people find this process is easier to get through than others, but nobody finds it quite as simple as Russian gymnast, Zlata.
The 29-year-old contortionist used her unique skills in an attempt to get over (under and in between) her husband, who she recently separated from. Desperate to forget about him, Zlata channeled all of her energy into a calendar featuring 12 images of herself in various poses.
Watch Zlata perform some of her eye-watering tricks in the video below:
“After this year’s separation from my husband, I wanted to emphasize my charms in the new calendar. That was the idea for my new calendar,” she told the Daily Mail.
It would appear that her mission was achieved. From what I can see, her charms have truly been emphasized.
Zlata, who now resides in Germany, first realized her talent when she was four years old. Bending her body in impossible ways, she knew she was different, and, at the age of six, she began training at a circus school.
