Yoga has become the West's workout of choice and with studios popping up there's no surprise that this spirtual sport is now a multimillion dollar industry. But chakra panties, copyrighted yoga poses, and a push to include yoga in the Olympics?
Surely this all flies in the face of sacred practice that's rooted in the teachings of renunciation and the search for self knowledge and personal freedom. Philp consults with yoga competition winners, studio owners, purist practitioners and anti yoga entrepreneurs.
He attempts to track down guru Bikram Choudhary, the "bad boy of yoga", famous for his hot style of yoga and suing yoga instructors who teach his trademarked postures. (Hot Docs)
