Summary, etc.:
Yoga. Is it a religion, a fitness fad, or a scientific discipline? View this intimate conversation with unorthodox characters who have dedicated their lives to the study and practice of Yoga in different forms. Along the way, discover the practice of the most traditional Sri Patanjala Yogashala temple in Mysore, then venture further down the coast, where Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion, is practiced along with surfing, in the world's first surfing ashram. From the pioneering academics in Britain to the Indian Swami living in a modern cave, we gain insights beyond the marketing stereotype and into the contrasting aspects of contemporary and millenary practices in this colorful collage of philosophy, history and personal paths of Yoga.
