Synopsis by Forrest Spencer
A common question about this ancient healing art: is it a form of exercise? Does it relieve stress? The answers to these and other questions are revealed during conversations with David Life and Sharon Gannon, the founding directors of Jivamukti Yoga Center in New York City (one of the leading yoga centers in the world), as well as with actor and yoga practitioner Willem Dafoe and author and devotional performer Bhagavan Das. This 56-minute video is a stimulating and revealing look at yoga -- its practices, its methods, its motives, and its origins in India.
