She said: 'Doing these poses just feels very natural to me. Sometimes it can get a bit uncomfortable if I have to hold a pose for a long time in photo shoots'
Performers, trainers and acrobats will meet in Bergisch Gladbach, near Cologne, for workshops, shows and various special events with Zlata billed as the star attraction.
Zlata has been contorting herself since she was four years old. After discovering how much she loved twisting herself into odd shapes, she joined an after-school circus class before turning her talent into a career.
She said: 'As soon as I started doing it I was addicted and I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.'
But it wasn't always so easy as a child as many of Zlata's peers were jealous of her ability.
She explained: 'In Russia being flexible is a very good thing to be because everyone is really into gymnastics. Some of the other girls didn't like how good I was.'
Zlata said she has to work out rigorously every day to stay in shape and maintain her flexibility.
She added: 'I don't really diet but I have to train very hard to keep my muscles in shape and to be as flexible as possible.'
