Enlighten Up! on DVD

The questions are:  What is yoga? Can yoga be defined? Can it change a life for the better? Can it really lead to enlightenment?  This yoga documentary follows newbie yogi and ex-journalist, Nick, on his yoga experience in the US and India.  His reactions are not always what the filmmaker had in mind.

Whether you're a seasoned yogi or just yoga curious, this film will take you on a journey from modern western yoga in LA and New York to the roots of  yoga in India.  You might feel inspired to go deeper into an ancient practice that has no boundaries.  

I found myself wondering what yoga really means to me.  It gave me a new perspective on my practice, on what I thought I knew, and reminded me that yoga is too big to fit into a perfectly labeled box. 

There are some well known western yogis in this film such as Alan Finger, Cyndi Lee, David Life, and Rodney Yee to name a few.  The interviews with yoga legends B.K.S. Iyengar and the late K. Pattabhi Jois are worth waiting for near the end. 

Check it out on DVD and enlighten up!
