Stunning visually, incredible soundtrack, but the same old documentary
23 March 2018 | by christo-02493See all my reviews

This film is okay. The cinematography is absolutely stunning, you can certainly tell that a person with a lifetime of photography experience was involved. The soundtrack is incredible, there are a few tunes on there that bring tears to my eyes and they will be added to my regular playlists while teaching.

But, this film falls into the same old pattern as several other documentaries on Yoga do. In this file we have some masters who are delivering some serious knowledge, teachings that they have learned in deep meditation after a lifetime of practice. However, while that is occurring we people practicing very difficult Asana, which does to really go along with what the masters are talking about.

This film could have really gone somewhere special with the people who were being interviewed, but it didn't. Also, none of the masters interviewed had their names on the screen.
