Singing Meets Yoga Circa 1944
I tend to think that yoga became a fitness trend in the late '90s, but these three yoginis were doing it way back when. Known as The Ross Sisters, this trio was big in the 1940s. They're adorable and boy-oh-boy are they bendy. They're also incredibly strong — check out how they can hold Forearm Stand Scorpion with what appears to be no effort at all. Although they were probably considered more contortionists or acrobats back then, many of the tricks they do you'd recognize in a yoga class. Watching this video makes me want to get myself to an Ashtanga class stat! What about you?
