I know. It’s a crazy question.

Let me tell you why I’m blogging about it.

I recently met someone who works for a very prominent doctor in Palm Beach who focuses on treating back pain.

I was doing some SEO keyword research for the office and found that a ridiculous amount of people are searching to see if Sofie Dossi has a spine.

I’m like,

“Who is this person and why would people ask this?!” Of course, she has a spine!”

Then, I did some more digging to see why people would ask this question.

Does Sofie Dossi Have a Spine?

Sofie Dossi has quite the YouTube channel and right there it says she is a contortionist.

She even has a video on her channel explaining this question of whether or not she has a spine.

Yes, she has a spine. If she didn’t, it’d be very hard for her to stand up straight.

She is just very, very flexible… so flexible, that watching this video made my back hurt.

Ouch! Maybe I need to stretch my spine.

Who is Sofie Dossi?

Sofie Dossi is a self-taught contortionist, hand balancer, and aerialist. In 2016, was an America’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer recipient wowing judges Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, guest judge Reba McEntire, creator Simon Cowell, and even the television host Nick Cannon. This also turned her into a well-known American YouTuber with a busy travel schedule after the reality competition series.

Below, you can watch her spinal cord in action in her first performance, the second week of the semi-finals, and the season finale.

She has a unique skill, insane flexibility with insane strength. She’s an amazing aerialist you’d expect to see in a Cirque du Soleil show, and her contortion skills are unmatched. (No wonder she got repeat standing ovations during her screen debut and future live shows!)

Sofie is also a talented actress playing the role of Dani in Boss Cheer in 2018 and making appearances on Bizaardvark in 2016 and K.C. Undercover, a Disney Channel comedy series, in 2015.

Sofie Clarice Dossi has given the world exclusive access to Dossi’s family, including her dad Mike Dossi and her older brother Zak Dossi who was part of the performing contortionists on AGT.

How to Stretch Your Spine Like Sofie Dossi

Because this is easier to show you than write, I’m going to share some videos below that may help, but in a nutshell, you can start by sitting with your hips back while pulling your arms forward until you feel the stretch in your lower back. Think Childs Pose in Yoga.

When I do this, I like to move my arms from the side to get my sides stretched out too.

I think she could teach you best in this video on Sofie’s YouTube channel, contortion stretching tutorial. If you practice what she does, you’ll be a more flexible person in no time with hard work and consistent training. But don’t be too hard on yourself, because natural flexibility decreases over time.

Now, if you really want to get into it and find out more about what stretching does to and for your body, check out this video.

It’s not on Sofie’s YouTube channel, but it does feature Sofie and also makes me feel like I need to stretch. Just a little.
