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?

Aww, everybody is saying they don't see any yoga? I did, maybe just because after reading the top, that was what I was looking out for... but wow, amazing! They've just got it all, huh?

Holy sing, dance and contortionist Batman! That was pretty cool. I don't see too much yoga as I see Cirque de Soleil. :)

Um. That was awesome (not sure about yoga though). Very informative about potato salad.

It seems more like acrobatic dancing than yoga, even if there are recognizable yoga poses. But they are impressive.
