Yogawoman.

With thanks for the tip to Kezia Jauron.

“Yoga was bought to the west from India by a lineage of male teachers. Now there’s a generation of women who are leading the way. They’re strong, they’re inspiring and they’re radically changing people’s lives. YOGAWOMAN, a groundbreaking film, uncovering a global phenomenon that has changed the face of yoga forever.”

I can’t wait to see this. I love these women: strong, subversive, deeply loving, leaders, kind, frank. I’ve known Cyndi for years, particularly, and it’s so good to see her. Seane has been there for me personally in a way that makes me cry. Elena I’ve somehow only met once, but she support elephant like no other. Linda is my idol—the kind of editor elephant deserves, in my dreams.

Enjoy. If you can’t wait to see this, please click “like” or “recommend” or share to your Facebook Wall or just show a friend. And if you made this film, please let elephant help support, media sponsor, and participate in release of this. Email us: info at elephantjournal dot com

My perspective as a yoga guy is that the recent recreation of yoga in the West not only made the practice something applicable to women, but men like myself as well. I don't think I would be able to appreciate yoga as it was practiced years ago in India, but the modern, Western forms of yoga (taught and practiced mainly but not entirely by women) has become a critical part of my life and ability to function on a daily basis. Maybe I'm on the next wave beyond this, as yoga goes from men to women and back to men again.
