Yoga was brought 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 peoples lives. From the busy streets of Manhattan to the dusty slums of Kenya, Yoga woman uncovers a global phenomenon that has changed the face of yoga forever. Led by a new generation of dynamic female teachers, this "new" yoga replaces the male-centered, rigid style with a distinctly feminine practice that honors intuition, family, flow, connection, community, activism, and the cyclical nature of women's lives. Yoga woman is a groundbreaking film that captures this fascinating time of awakening female power. Through rich personal stories, Yoga woman reveals how yoga has utterly transformed the lives of thousands of over-stimulated, overscheduled, and multi tasking modern women. From the golden beaches of Australia to the serene piazzas of Italy, the film follows the heart-rending stories of women who have found a lifeline through this magical and mystical practice.
