Breath of the Gods
The origins of modern Yoga

May 8 2014

Half a year ago I wanted to bring myself to a regular yoga practice (see the post here). Today I feel blessed because I got there. Yoga became this integral part of my life. It is a tool for self-realization, the ability to face things as they are and eventually their transcendence.

The documentary (DVD) below investigates the origins of modern yoga with rare historical footage of T. Krishnamacharya and interviews with Pattabhi Jois and B. K. S. Iyengar.

Unfortunately there’s a German voice-over that isn’t translated. But the protagonists speak English most of the time.
