Breath of the Gods ~ A Journey to the Origins of Modern Yoga
So as you guys know, on sunday i went to watch this movie…started at 21.15 and ended at around 23:00 can’t remember exactly what time it was….i just remember it being late. The movie was quite long – at least it appeared to be long….i must say that it was really nice seeing Sri Krishnamacharya on screen, as well as B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois & Krishnamacharya’s children (who are no longer kids). It was incredibly informative, from an Ashtanga & Vinyasa Flow point of view – one must also realize that there are other disciplines other than these ones which are not mentioned in the movie at all – students who are currently doing Hatha Yoga teacher training were totally appalled by the movie…so it doesn’t give a full, 360 degree view of where yoga positions, Asanas, come from – which is the goal/aim of Jan Schmidt-Garre. Personally i found it interesting as i’m practicing Ashtanga, and during my teacher training, read and learnt about Krishnamacharya and Pattabhi Jois. Here is the summer of the movie i found on Imdb: “A Journey to the Origins of Modern Yoga. Yoga is known to go back to God Shiva, who perfected 8,4 million postures, according to Indian tradition. Far less known is the fact that yoga is at the same time an early 20th century-creation of Indian savant T. Krishnamacharya, which is what this film is about. Krishnamacharya’s life and teachings are seen through the eyes of the director on his search for authentic yoga. His journey leads him from students and relatives of Krishnamacharya’s such as the legendary teachers Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois to the source of modern yoga: the palace of the Maharaja of Mysore, where Krishnamacharya founded the first ever yoga school. A feature-length documentary including rare historical footage as well as lavish reenactments.” I would suggest going to see it for yourselves and making your own mind up on this movie – and if you do go and see it – let me know what you thought!!!
