Gives Yoga a bad name.
22 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of women arrive at a yoga school in order to take a secret "intensive course" that is supposed to restore their youth and vitality in only a few days. There are rules, though, and breaking the rules leads to unfortunate and sinister consequences. 

Yoga has two things going for it. It's weird, which can be a good thing, especially with how derivative horror movies can be. And it has a cast full of beautiful Korean women, which is always a plus in my book. Other than those two things, though, Yoga has very little to recommend it. 

The biggest problem is that Yoga is simply boring. I watch a lot of Asian horror, but this is one of the least interesting that I've come across. It's not frightening or gruesome or shocking, there's no atmosphere of tension or menace, and no moments that make you cringe or wince. There was a lot of yawning and watch checking on my part, but those were really the only reactions that Yoga drew from me. 

Add the fact that this wholly dull movie has a very unsatisfying and frankly confusing ending, and there's no real reason for even the hardest of the hardcore Asian horror buffs to see this. Very disappointing.
