Body is a Temple - Chu'a by yuni Body is a Temple - Chu'a by yuni
Chu'a has certainly built his temple well ^o^

I still don't know why a Native American guy would do Yoga, but both cultures go along strangely well ^-^

Its me again! Your history guy! It is proven that most first nations (mainly in Canada) would actually practice contortion and acrobatics. It was a female practice though, so girls from 6 to 14 would practice it heavily. Usually assisted by elders or blushing boyfriends. I think it would make an interesting composition seeing more Native Americans doing some twisting. oh and sorry if commenting on old work is bugging u!)

ya know, youre right. the two cultures do relate. its amazing to see how humans, once spread out and unaware of each other, come to similar conclusions on comparison !

Waoh... I saw the youtube video and that was insane... I'm guessing that the girl in that video is double-jointed (something I do not have, althuogh
I'm very felexable myself)
anyhow your artwork caught my attention because i was looking for something out of the ordinary, and i found just that!

Wow! I have seen all of you gallery, and this one is the most insane/coolest one! I can't seam to figure out the anatomy/pose of what chu is doing!

But how does one get to be that good at yoga?!?!
Truthfully I'd like to do that!

This is a new one? I like Chu'a. he's a beauty and all his poses I know are well done!

Hey, are you sure these kind of muscle and flexibility go hand in hand?

But of course, I've seen really buffy men doing fantastic things like that. And yup, it's not a very old image, I drew it only about 2 months ago or so ^^ I'm happy to know that you like his poses... I have a book that explains how the ancient shamanism transformed into the modern circus arts through centuries, Chu'a is definitely one of those original shamanic apprentices who actually "invented" all these bendy postures in order to be able to talk with spirits and visit other worlds (they called it "changing of shape"), though modern flexible arts serve mostly as entertainment ^^

I like watching these men when they are beautiful, so the amount of muscle is no key factor to me.

The quiet mood of Chu'a is something that fascinates me. That and his confidence in what he's doing. I'm not that bad looking either, but I *think* I am. He *knows* he looks good without being arrogant. That I like.
