An 82-year-old Chinese grandma has become a social media star by showcasing her spellbinding yoga skills in the city of Lanfang.

'Flexi granny' Jia Yu Xiang could be seen executing sensei-level yoga exercises inside her home and at a nearby park on Thursday, manifesting her formidable flexibility through an array of splits, crawls, and stretches.

The elastic elderly recounted how she started exercising four years ago after not feeling very well. The movement maven was diligently practising her moves for around two years when trainer Deng Fa Sheng found her and started broadcasting her videos online, proceeding to turn her into a social media celebrity.

"I was with a babysitter, I began to practise step by step, I let Mr. Deng found me. Everyday, everyday we play together," the zippy nan shared with a smile.

Jia Yu now has over 100,000 followers on popular Chinese video-sharing app Kwai.

"Now there should be more than 100 yoga movements, which are fixed for more than two hours a day. [She] practices handstand for more than two hours at noon. [She] goes to the square and dances for more than two hours in the afternoon," Deng said with pride.
