The ancient practice of yoga has been packaged and commercialized in a myriad of different ways over recent decades. But while this has enabled it to reach millions of people, it has also brought with it the pitfalls of operating in a modern capitalist world.
In this film, we explore the obsession with yoga and the impact this is having on one of the world’s oldest physical and spiritual practices, and ask: Who owns yoga?
Produced for Al Jazeera English’s Correspondent series, starring Bhanu Bhatnagar.
