According to the Daily Mail, Zlata (whose real name is Julia Gunthel) discovered her unusual flexibility when she was 4 years old. She allegedly has a rare, unspecified condition that causes her tendons to be more pliable than the average tendon, a big plus in her industry. The 29-year-old was a gymnast before she became a contortionist, and started this calendar project to “emphasize her charms” after she and her husband recently got divorced. Khloé Kardashian would be proud.

 The 2016 calendar is titled “Beauty Embodied in Flexibility.” Scroll through her incredible poses below.
