Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In BREATH OF THE GODS, director Jan Schmidt-Garre goes in search of the origins of Modern Yoga, which is practiced by tens of millions of people throughout the world, and originated in the early 20th century through the teachings of Indian savant T. Krishnamacharya. The documentary follows Schmidt-Garre's investigations into authentic yoga, meeting both relatives and students of Krishnamacharya along his journey.  

The film features major names of Yoga including Pattabhi Jois and B.K.S. Iyengar. Jan Schmidt-Garre investigates the transformation of Yoga from its introduction to Western culture in the 19th century, when the practice was met with skepticism, to its widespread acceptance gained through Krishnamacharya's teaching. While Yoga today is a billion-dollar industry with many devotees, this film presents the history of an ancient, sacred tradition with roots going back to the god Shiva.

For anybody curious about the roots of Modern Yoga as practiced today, this film provides an in-depth history, placing the practice of yoga in a spiritual context, the practice of which can lead to union with the cosmic Self.

Explore the emotional, psychological and spiritual aspects of the human journey through film. The REEL HEALING Series pairs mainstream movies with expert wellness practitioners and speakers to facilitate powerful personal growth and evolution.
