The Yoga Gurus

If you had the chance to meet some of the world’s most enlightened yoga masters, what would you want to know? What would you ask them? The Yoga Gurus is your chance to hear from them! Filmed on location in India from the lap of the Himalayas in Rishikesh to the south in Mysore, you will meet the top yoga teachers from both east and west. Go beyond the physical asanas of yoga and deep into the mind and inner being of a yoga guru. Their words will guide you to become a better person and healthier in both mind and body. “Yoga is self realization” says Shareth from Pattabhi Jois...”to become enlightened.” This realization of what is true yoga will give you the keys to open a door that will leave behind the external pressures we live with each day and a life unfulfilled with material things. “Now I have the abundance, I have the wealth and met the goals but I don’t have the happiness.” says yoga guru Gurmukh about the west. Developing perfect posture and balance is just the first step for these yoga masters. The physical side of yoga, the asana is the beginning of the journey for most practitioners in India. We take you out of the shala to the ancient source of yoga, where Himalayan yogis, saints and holy men spend a lifetime of meditation and austere yoga practice to find enlightenment. “Yoga tones your mind and spirit and your entire being” says Pujya Swamiji... “Learn and live, what more do you want!” Understanding who you are without external gratification is the ultimate goal of a yogi and will lead to a lifetime of happiness. If that’s not enough we take you into the yoga schools and allow you to witness the classes and techniques that each guru teaches during class. Listen to the words of wisdom from teachers of Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Jivamukti and the yoga of devotion - Bhakti Yoga.
