Ten years on…

I have a few friends who will be going to the Ashtanga Yoga New York shala today, not to practice but to watch a screening of “Ashtanga New York.”

My understanding of the documentary is that it was intended to follow Guruji’s time spent at the shala; however, as fate would have it, the terrorist attacks of 9/11 happened during Guruji’s visit. His time in New York, and the documentary, obviously changed.

From my “critical” perspective, that probably compromised the quality of the film as a documentary about Ashtanga and Guruji. But it captured something else and provides one view on New York in the days and weeks immediately after the attacks.

This excerpt is about the “benefits” of Ashtanga. And, yes, that’s Gwyneth Paltrow.
