The producers of Yogawoman have announced that Academy-award nominated actress and yogini Annette Bening will narrate the film, which will premiere in major North American cities in September.
Yogawoman illuminates the global phenomenon of how modern women have embraced yoga. Eighty-percent of American yogis are women. Yet most of the teachers who bought the lineage here are men. The documentary explores how the current generation of female yoga teachers are taking the practice and making it their own–empowering their female students every step of the way.
That’s why the people behind YogaWoman recently launched their website, a portal for yoginis, says co-producer and director Kate Clere.
“Yogawoman.tv is designed as a resource for all yoga women around the world to come together and share all their thoughts, writings and research on how yoga is changing women’s lives,” she told Buzz. “It will be a one stop shop to find out what is going on with classes, retreats and workshops that support women with their practice.”
As a community resource, the website also tells you how you can pre-order a copy, host a screening, and find out where the film will be showing at a theater near you.
