Filmed in South African townships riddled with crime and unemployment where many of the population are suffering from HIV and Aids, and where Whoonga is destroying communities and lives. The documentary traces the establishment of yoga classes in places where the majority of people have never heard of ‘yoga’ – and focuses on five people selected to participate in yoga teacher training courses. It documents the changes in their lives as they embark on a journey of learning yoga – and learning to teach yoga – uncovering the effects that this has on them, their families and their wider township communities.
