Pioneered by Indian savant T. Krishnamacharya, modern yoga is now a staple of every lunchbreak in the Western world. This documentary shows how that karmic alignment came to pass.
Combining archive footage, historical recreations and interviews with gurus and their disciples, this lyrical, thoughtful, moving pilgrimage seeks to establish the contributions of the god Shiva and healer-cum-scholar Tirumalai Krishnamacharya to the evolution of modern yoga.
An insightful look at a global phenomenon.
