My friend Jill Allen and I saw a sneak preview of the movie Enlighten Up! last night. It follows a yoga novice as he takes a variety of classes in the U.S., and around the globe. He experiments with Bikram, Kundalini, Iyengar and meditation. This is definitely worth seeing if you are curious about how to incorporate yoga into your life. At one point the lead character asks an old yogini what twisting up like a pretzel has to do with enlightenment and he says “Absolutely nothing” with a grin.
The movie opens Friday at the Fox Tower. Go see it! Seriously, go!
