A quiet revolution brews in yoga studios, hospitals and living rooms around the globe. In record numbers women are discovering their own strength, vitality, 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.
Led by a new generation of dynamic female teachers, this “new” yoga replaces the malecentered, more rigid style with a distinctly feminine practice that honors intuition, family, flow, connection, community, activism and the cyclical nature of women’s lives. Yogawoman is a groundbreaking film that captures this fascinating time of awakening female power.
Through rich personal stories, Yogawoman reveals how yoga has utterly transformed the lives of millions of over‐stimulated, over-scheduled multitasking modern women. With vivid detail and poignancy, Yogawoman shows how women have embraced yoga for easing health conditions like breast cancer, infertility, heart disease, anxiety and depression, and given a lifeline to women in prison, abuse survivors and those struggling with body image or eating disorders.
Yogawoman bears witness to millions of women who have integrated yoga into their daily lives so they are happier, healthier and more fulfilled ‐ allowing them to give back to others with full hearts and creative minds.
In intimate interviews with the world’s leading experts, many who have become worldwide icons with rock star status, Yogawoman captures how these teachers have blazed a new trail for women.
World-renowned teachers appearing in Yogawoman include Patricia Walden, Sharon Gannon, Shiva Rea, Angela Farmer, Cyndi Lee, Seane Corn, Donna Farhi and forwardthinking medical professionals such as integrative physician Dr. Sara Gottfried and world-renowned research scientist Dr. Shirley Telles. Yogawoman is the first film of its kind to bring together these luminaries, distilling their wisdom and spreading their message of peace and empowerment for the benefit of women everywhere.
