While the popularity of Yoga in the West is enormous; few people realize where yoga came from. Yoga is often seen as an exercise regime. Yet it is really a path to the inner self; the Divine. And the physical benefits of yoga are just a small part of its' benefits. The origins of yoga are shrouded in the mists of time. It all started seven thousand years ago; in the Indus Valley. Here; in Himalayan caves; ancient mystics known as rishis renounced worldly desires and left society to dwell in solitude.The Himalayan sages probed the deepest mysteries of life -- and what lays beyond death.
ORIGINS OF YOGA features the world's leading authority; Georg Feuerstein; who has written 36 books on the subject. And the Yogis of India themselves are interviewed on location as they describe their quest; their lifestyle; and the true meaning of Yoga.
ORIGINS OF YOGA documents the lives of these sages - who are on the same exact Path as the Westerners who follow their teachings. ... Written by
Origins Of Yoga is a film that anyone associated with yoga, even if in the littlest way, must see. Anybody, who take any yoga classes, no matter if at the Gym, at a studio, or at home with the TV, should def. make an effort to watch this documentary. Georg Feuerstein, Ph. D., who BTW. wrote some fabulous books on Yoga (at least 25 or so)explains how the Yogis in India practice and takes you on a beautiful journey to India. That really made me want to go there now. It's so beautiful! I do Yoga myself, and this film made me realize that we need to appreciate a lot more give a lot more, and take a lot less. Breathe in and breathe out, nice and slowly and enjoy your life!
