“A firm and warm embrace … ” — New York Times
“A fascinating dip into the gender history of yoga … ” — Variety

Synopsis: Though Yoga was brought to the west from India by a lineage of male teachers, today, there’s a generation of women who are leading the way — they’re strong they’re inspiring, and they’re radically changing peoples lives. A quiet revolution brews in yoga studios, hospitals, and living rooms around the globe: In record numbers, women are discovering their own strength, vitality, "Yogawoman" screens in Lowell, March 7!peace, and power through yoga. Reclaiming this ancient spiritual path from its traditionally male form, the result is a radical transformation of modern yoga, as we know it.
