Meet the teenage contortionist who has stunned locals with his ability to rotate his shoulders 360 degrees and spin his neck around. Yash Shah has a ridiculously flexible body that he can even squeeze through a tennis racket. His body can twist by 180 degrees and his hands and legs can do the full 360. Yash has been dubbed ‘rubber boy’ by locals in his hometown of Surat in the western Indian state of Gujarat.


The 19-year-old practices for at least three hours per day and says his inspiration is American contortionist Daniel Browning Smith. Yash said: ‘I started practicing contortion skills after watching his videos on YouTube. I started following him the moment I saw his acts.
