The position when the the two are facing each other, on the toes and fingertips, swinging their heads. Does anyone know if this is a specific posture/contortion, it's name etc. Or the correct breathing style that accompanies it?
Any ideas would be much appriciated.

its actually, if not impossible, then far from possible to reach this position, seeing as their legs are straight and their backs are arched in an angle less than 45

never the less humerous position indeed

I have a slightly deformed vertabra, which is protected by over developed muscle, hence the position is not hard for me to attain and walk in. The problem is that, without full understanding of the posture I cannot learn to hold the position for more than, at present , about 10 minuets, thus nullifing it from meditational use.

Which is most irritating.

Give me time, for I must seek thy holy camera.
Amusingly, once in that position, the head natrualy swings exactly as in the video.

Any ideas how they did it at every single Tool show they were invited to, then?

That's what contortionists do.

I am not a trained contortionist, have never done gymnastics/ballet of any kind.
Hence, I am confused.
Alas, any idea what the breathing style is?

Why do you need to hold that position for ten minutes? It seems kinda stressful to be meditating in.
