The moment has arrived! The film Mysore Yoga Traditions is now available for purchase worldwide. It has been a beautiful and very educational experience making this film. We all feel that this is an unprecedented film which gives a deep perspective on the history and philosophy of Yoga in Mysore and which will be informative for yoga practitioners around the world.
