Recommended minimum donation of $20.



All monies raised will go to fund the making of a feature length yoga documentary film by Emma Balnaves.
Filming has already started and is due for release in 2019.

"The film is an eight part journey of reconnection to a fully sacred science that will allow new and existing yoga students to delve deeper into the origins of yoga, and clear up some misconceptions about yoga in contemporary culture.

Our story begins in Nepal at the heart of the Pashupatinath temple where Goraknath, one of the forefathers of Hatha yoga opened up the practice to all in the 7/8th century.

Goraknath believed yoga should be made more accessible to people from all walks of life and emphasised that the ‘Search for Truth’ and ‘Spirituality’ should be a valuable goal for all people.

The footage weaves through 8 chapters and covers the facets of yoga that need to be understood for someone new to yoga or already on the path of yoga.

It explores topics such as firmness and having faith in one’s own undertaking on life’s path, the benefit of having a guide, the significance of moderation, mastery over external influences, and the spirit of universal equanimity.

We want our film to inspire a deeper look into the origins and roots of yoga, allowing yoga students and those who are thinking about studying yoga to have a better understanding of the true potential one can have on the yogic journey which is beyond just the physical practice.

Our film will offer guidance of what is involved on the path of Hatha Yoga and modern day living."
