Thirty million Americans and countless millions worldwide have taken up a practice that is transforming their lives. Follow filmmaker Suzanne Bryant as she meets with the most prominent Yoga Gurus and teachers in the west and travels to India to explore the power of this ancient practice. Along the way she discovers what YOGA IS. This is the story of a woman who thought she had it all ...until she lost her beloved mother to cancer. Trying to process and understand her profound grief, Suzanne embarked on a journey and turned to a deeper practice of yoga. Suzanne's journey led her to India on a spiritual quest to learn more about this powerful ancient practice. She studied yoga and Ayurveda in Kerala, Ashtanga Yoga with Pattabhis Jois and his daughter Saraswati, met with Guru Neem Karoli Baba’s son in Vrindavan to learn about Bhakti yoga and came face to face with a near death experience herself. While in India, something had shifted within her, the light had returned. Inspired by her experience in India, she returned back to the U.S. to explore what yoga means to the West and how it can transform lives. Suzanne met with the most prominent western Yoga Gurus and teachers as well as celebrity yoga devotees Russell Simmons, Christy Turlington, musician Michael Franti and Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman in search for the answers that unite us all.  Answers to questions such as Love, Truth, Happiness, Purpose, The Now, our Dark and Light , Empowerment, Karma, Enlightenment, Transformation and so much more. What she found was something wonderful: a path that can enable anyone to transform suffering and experience daily peace and happiness. - See more at: http://www.yogais.com

The unfolding of this film takes place in the theater of the mind, in the deep and often forgotten wells from which the magic of perception springs forth. Somewhere in the the 90% “dormant” mass of grey matter, we all perceive the design of things, we all sense the perfect orchestration of life as art, and we all comprehend the multi-dimensional existence in which we flicker and dance. This film has been ten tears in the making as techniques were developed to move the imagery from the representational to the deeply dimensional. The still images, exclusively of North American cacti and succulents, come alive as they fold onto themselves into mandalas and kaleidoscopes and reveal worlds and “truths” that feel at once abstract and oddly familiar.
