Movie Info

Yoga was brought to the west from India by a lineage of male teachers. Now there's a generation of women who are leading the way and they're radically changing people's lives. From the busy streets of Manhattan to the dusty slums of Kenya, from the golden beaches of Australia Yogawoman uncovers a global phenomenon that has changed the face of yoga forever. -- (C) Official Site

One could, however, wish that this endless encomium played less like a PowerPoint sales pitch, illustrated with clip-art imagery, scored with generic music and narrated in mellifluous tones by Annette Bening.

Kate Clere McIntyre and Saraswati Clere's less than revelatory documentary that incessantly makes the point that yoga is really, really good for you.

The ancient Eastern tradition is demonstrably beneficial for both mind and body, but its execution can be so boring and its teachers so painfully earnest.

Doing yoga proves more appealing than watching a film promote it.

Yogawoman clearly is a fan of yoga and of women. And as it gently reminds us, these two special interests have not always been compatible.

With a stronger narrative spine and a little more sense of gender-gap curiosity, Yogawoman could bridge the gap between faithful yoga adherents and a general audience. As is, it does not.

For what it is, the film is entirely feel-good, lauds women who are making positive changes in the world, and, if nothing else, provides a reminder to at least stretch once in a while.

A pleasant and pretty polemic narrated by a serene Annette Bening, Yogawoman presents the ancient practice of yoga as a cure-all for the physical and spiritual ills of today's women.

It's less a film than an unimaginatively assembled series of talking heads.

It's unapologetically one-sided and aimed entirely at the converted; if you don't know your half-tortoise from your full-locust then Yogawoman is probably not for you.
