About The Documentary
Yoga, Inc., a 2007 documentary by John Philp which explores the state of Yoga in the 21st century and what has led to it becoming big business.
Yoga has been around for thousands of years and was a spiritual journey which helped people liberate themselves and become self-aware. With a specific focus on the United States, this Yoga documentary explores how its original purpose has morphed into something completely different; for some Yoga is just a physical endeavour.
The film follows Yogi Bikram Choudhury who has copyrighted his own style of Yoga "Bikram Yoga" and hopes to get it into the Olympics. Many people have called him out for copyrighting something that has been around for centuries.
