Paola di Florio,
The filmmaker's journey began the day after the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. After receiving an email from a family friend who recounted how he had escaped World Trade Center Tower 1 moments before it imploded. After reading this email the filmmaker, Arthur Klein, was unable to stay at work. Devastated by the current events, he left his office in the middle of the day and in street cloths went to a yoga class. "It seemed like a good place to begin to regain a sense of peace, balance and wellbeing in a world that had seemingly begun to collapse." A year after beginning this every day yoga practice, Arthur was approached by two of his teachers and invited to capture what was unfolding in the yoga community. So for the last 6 years it has been his sadhana to explore, question and capture this emerging distinctly Western voice in yoga through a compelling collection of diverse American yogic stories. Y Yoga captures the philosophy, intention and spirit of Yoga from a charter ... Written by
Yoga as a practice from which life can be enriched.
This movie has a great deal to say about the use of Yoga as an experience that will substantially change your life. The flexibility gained by practice will do as much for your mind as your body. The camera simply but meaningfully puts the viewer in the Yoga studios. The commentary is heartfelt and sincere. The range of individuals seems a good cross-section of stories. The people are real, the stories are real. The practice of Yoga is shown to be an all encompassing experience that might bring you moments of peace as well as moments of exhilaration. Yes, the bodies of both the women and the men are attractive - that seems inspiration enough to join the club that is open to all if you make the effort. Great music, some funny moments. The complete Yoga package for all.
