Photography by Artist Yung Cheng Lin also known as 3cm.
This photograph shows the headless human form practicing Gomukhasana arms. Also known as cow face arms. Gomukhasana arms helps release tight shoulders. It is a pose that most of us can't easily come into due to the fact that it requires our shoulders to move into positions that our bodies do not come into very often. Because of this, the pose can be unsettling and provoke a reaction that may be gut wrenching to some.
Like artist Chengs's work, the pose can feel or look like we are distorting the human body. It is so important that we do not force the human body into any uncomfortable perspective. Cheng's work shows us the pressure that society puts on women's bodies to be in good shape, up to date on fashion trends and other issues of what femininity may be.
Allow your body to move freely in its complete range of motion that is available to you, and no more. If you need to use a prop for some poses such as Gomukhasana arms, you can take a strap and use it as shown in the photograph. The photograph has the headless woman using her hair as a prop. She is forcing and pulling on parts of her body to fully come into the pose. She is abusing herself for sake of coming into an expected pose. Be gentle and loving to yourself and don't allow society to tell you how you should move, act, look or be. Be yourself. Find your true self through forms of human interaction, creative expression and practice. We are who we are. ❤️
