Just caught the trailer for an upcoming documentary which looks pretty cool: Enlighten Up!. Here’s the blurb:
Filmmaker Kate Churchill is determined to prove that yoga can transform anyone. Nick Rosen is skeptical but agrees to be her guinea pig. Kate immerses Nick in yoga, and follows him around the world as he examines the good, the bad and the ugly of yoga. The two encounter celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks and world-renowned gurus. Tensions run high as Nick’s transformational progress lags and Kate’s plan crumbles. What unfolds and what they discover is not what they expected.
And here’s the trailer:
Beyond being an interesting look at the world of yoga, it also seems to offer a fascinating story about the juxtaposition of skeptical, ‘fact’-oriented thinking, and Eastern mysticism. The film features yoga legend B.K.S. Iyengar, which might be worth the price of admission alone.
