Documentary on Krishnamacharya’s life opens in English

A documentary on Krishnamacharya, which we noted back in its German form here, is showing — I think for the first time — this week in Scotland and England. It is set to come to North America this summer.

“The Breath of the Gods” runs 105 minutes. Here is more from the movie’s website:

Krishnamacharya’s life and teachings are seen through the eyes of the director Jan Schmidt-Garre on his search for authentic yoga. His journey leads him from the legendary students and relatives of Krishnamacharya’s to the source of modern yoga, at the palace of the Maharaja of Mysore. From Pattabhi Jois Jan learns the “Sun salutation”, from Iyengar the “King of Asanas”, the headstand, and finally Sribhashyam reveals to him his father’s secret “Life Saving Yoga Session”.

And here is the movie’s upcoming scheduled showings/releases:
