Nigerian Contortionist and Flexibility Trainer
My Body Bends But It Never Breaks - Mia Bassey
Mia Bassey is a Young and Rising self taught contortionist and flexibility trainer based in Nigeria. Mia bends her body in unthinkable positions for fun and fitness as practicing Yoga leaves one fit and healthy.
She started practicing contortion in 2017, whereby, in her words, “I wasn’t ever flexible. I was just a dancer. When I started practicing contortion, I did it from scratch with zero flexibility.”
Still in her words, “In 2017, I’d practice for 4-5hrs in a day; morning, afternoon or evening. I made sure my practice was consistent enough.” Mia has been growing in a career as a Trainer along side studying Biochemistry in The University of Uyo and she is currently in her Final Year.
This promising talent is breaking boundaries soon as this is a rare talent among Africans or Nigerians.
Look out for this one.
