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.

"Yogawoman" extols the benefits of the practice of yoga and it is a bit like watching a 90 minute infomercial as teacher after teacher talks about the improvements she has gained. The repetitive messages are not followed through with any in depth information about the foundations or philosophy of the art. Watching may confirm the beliefs of practitioners but it may struggle to engage others. Strike out a pose.
