This film will change your perspective not just on yoga, but on the world. Well worth the watch.

You don't have to be a yogi to love this movie.
It's creator, Arthur Klein
has made this classic, with his whole heart and soul. It was meant to be shared - with a lot of people. That's why,
when stuck for a gift idea for friends or family, I always give a copy of this DVD.
For any occasion, the YYmovie is a treasure.
If it inspires the viewer to take a swing at practicing yoga, so much the better. If not, at least they will know what all the ruckus is about.
Buy it, recycle it. Spread the joy.

Thank u for spreading consciousness through your heartfelt work and for inspiring the world towards positive evolution. This comes at a perfect time.... As an acupuncturist and yogini, I am beginning to lead yoga classes for my patients and will surely be passing the message on through your doc film. As a collective, we are upgrading humanity towards PWhood through a linked chain of divine intervention!! May our family tribe continue to grow : )
Amen and Namaste!"

I am a yoga newbie and I loved this movie. It has inspired me to stay with the experience of yoga and to continue to have the exhilaration that I feel after every session, notwithstanding the aches and soreness that I am currently feeling!
Arthur has done a brilliant job in portraying the magic of yoga through the lenses of a diverse group of improbable yogis!
I am hooked!
I can recommend this DVD wholeheartedly ....
Arthur, thank you and blessings to you.

I would like for you & everyone else to know about the awesome gift you have given by making, "Y Yoga Movie"!
I teach yoga to women in prison. Every now & then I am allowed to bring a movie to the prison, if I can explain how & why the Yoginis would benefit from seeing it.
Yesterday, March 18th, I had permission to show Y Yoga to the women. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. One Yogini said, that now she knows she can finish her time in prison, "one breath and one downdog, at a time."
Some said that they were blown away by seeing a part of this world living in harmony; different faiths, different cultures, different backgrounds, all practicing in loving kindness with each other. Some said that after seeing this they may even find a way to forgive themselves.
Humbly I bow,

I can definitely recommend this movie to anyone who has practiced, planning on practicing, or even thinking about yoga. Arthur takes the viewer on his personal six-year journey in discovering yoga while incorporating the stories of other yogis and yoginis creating a true sense of how yoga is being used and viewed in the world today.
From kirtan musician Dave Stringer to a new mother to wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, Y Yoga shows just why yoga is becoming more and more popular through their easily relatable, yet very personal stories. There is not much about the technical practice; Arthur mainly focuses on the spiritual aspect of yoga and how it can be a positive tool in anyone’s life.
The movie was enhanced by stunning artwork by Robert Sturman and a great soundtrack featuring Donna De Lory, Girish, Dave Stringer, Spring and many more talented artists.
Y Yoga really captures the benefits yoga brings to anyone’s life through accounts of others who’s lives have been changed by yoga. It really answers the question “why do yoga?” and makes the viewer want to start, continue, or do more. This is definitely THE movie to see!!

Thank you for creating this film Arthur. It really deserves a big audience, in my opinion. I feel the essence of yoga was delivered in a well-rounded and artful way, and that its potential audience is pretty large. The world needs to see this! I think some Bonus uncut interview footage would be yummy too, one day ... Wished it could have gone on forever! Love to see it grow and get seen, far and wide. :) Namaste, jessa

My friends / Yoga studio owners here have your video and we watched it yesterday. I was touched and inspired by the film and thank you for presenting such an open, balanced and muscially delicious perspective to the world of Yoga.
Thanks for the work and spreading the word.

Namaste, Arthur / \ Y Yoga Movie is an amazing piece of work, thank you so much for this beautiful offering back to the yoga community. Our little teacher training group watched it together last night in Naples, Florida and the response was a resounding "Aum." 3~' Shanti, Alan

Thank you Arthur, I so enjoyed watching Y-Yoga.
As a 57 year old who's been doing Yoga in Los Angeles for 20 years it was simply delightful to watch a movie about our joined experience, students, teachers, friends, family. When I say "our" I refer to the connection we have all made, that has been such a joyful part of our yoga practice.
I think that the "ah ha" experience or epiphany experience that we discussed the other night, that arises from inspired teaching in the group setting is love-ingly documented in your film.
With each interview I smiled with my heart, and many times with tears to be blessed with the knowing and connection that has accompanied me on my personal yoga journey. Thanks to so many of the amazing teachers, musicians, writers, thinkers, artists, and lovers of life that make up this amazing community of yogis and yoginis, I can not help but spill-over with gratitude to be a part of it.
I kept thinking about Woodstock, and being a part of the "Love Generation Revolution" back in the 60's, and how our favorite musicians and their music came together to create a blast of inspiration that lasted and kept us going for 50 years. Now we have yoga and the yoga community to take us to the next level....., a clean world....full of peace for all. The dream still lives.
PS...Perhaps your movie should never end and it should just keep getting bigger :0)

This was a really fantastic movie!
I feel so inspired after watching it and I recommend it to everyone!
Thank you Arthur for making/sharing it!!!
— Justin Quinn, Boston, Mass
I'm usually not much on the email -- sorry you seem to be getting a barrage!! I finally watched your movie. An excellent accomplishment with a powerful message and very impressive list of resources -- a plethora of talent! Great job connecting with so many that have such unique insight. Lots of love and light!
I personally also enjoyed seeing instructors I recall from yesteryear still in it, happy and reaching out to others to spread the gift around. I practiced yoga at Germukh's studio with first husband Brian when we were just babies in our 20's. On occasion, I went to her home to practice (I think her husband made really yummy cookies sold in health food stores, if memory serves). She recommended a doctor who delivered Dillon into this world--a small world at that.
Thanks, I enjoyed watching your movie today!
— Kate Rice, Santa Monica, CA
Love it! The movie really captures the benefits of Yoga, both physically and mentally. I can watch it over and over again!
Arthur, Thank you again for the blessing the world with your film and helping spread the light of yoga. Every time I watch it I find a new inspiration for my practice which now includes the completion of my 200hr training. Your film inspired me to pursue teaching by featuring so many yogis, including yourself, that are truly making a difference in this world. It also was nice to chat briefly with you via Skype before the viewing at Yoga Mandali and am looking forward to your first visit here. It's obvious to me that you are the real deal, and the next time somebody gives me the finger in traffic, I'm going to think of you and bow to that person in namaste!LOL! You rock Arthur! Keep being the light that you are!

Hi Arthur, Bryan recommended your movie last time I was in Santa Monica. I just finished watching here in New Jersey and WOW, you got it all on film. You captured the feeling of yoga on film! Amazing! Namaste, Michael

I watched "Y Yoga Movie" this am. My bladder (or the moon) woke me and I just had to watch it, beginning to end, through all the namastes. I'm typing to you under my covers with a gorgeous glowing full moon shining through the french doors. The beauty of being a creative communicator is skill and exercising the courage to reveal and express yourself to anyone listening. Thank you for inspiring me to honor that creative warrior in me and for making a piece I can show my friends and family in Wisconsin, marine cousins, fitness fanatics... Those are the boundary walls I've experienced, and haven't known how to reach or teach them. As the moon dips into the treeline beyond my balcony, I feel blessed and guided that I am on my path of living yoga and I saw this full moon from the warmth of my bed and your movie! I'm thankful there are male yoga instructors, business men, and filmmakers getting "the word" out in the west. Be yoga.
So many yoga studios are full of women... Let's turn on a few more good men and activate the emerging yoga community as citizens of a better world.
Ps. In 4 years of living here, I've never seen the moon set from my bed. Namaste
