This practice is very old and one finds traces in several civilizations of them: there exists thus a vase INCA discovered with the Mexico, Statue S Chinese be dating from before JC and the Sculpture S on the temple of the Borobudur in Indonesia (12th century).
One distinguishes the distorsion before from the distorsion postpones . The front distorsion is based on exercises of flexibility with a movement of the back towards the interior: for example, to pass its head behind its legs. The exercises are often characterized as being “frog” installations. The back distorsion, less “natural”, rests on exercises with a movement of the back towards outside: for example, the figure of the “box” or the " scorpion" (photograph) or the artist brought back his feet in front of his head.
The distorsion is practiced much in the Asian circuses. There would be a religious origin with these series of movements. One says thus that in Mongolia, the exercises were practiced in the temples to show the control of the body and were thus connected with a religious practice.
