Township Yogi

Through the stories of six residents who become yoga instructors, Township Yogi documents the surprising flourishing of yoga in the townships of Kwa Zulu-Natal. Life for all six has been a struggle for basic survival, given joblessness, government incompetence, crime and the ravages of chronic diseases. Despair is close to the surface. But, despite some church opposition, yoga serves as a source of salvation, renewal and personal growth. Yoga now plays a complementary role in treating HIV, tuberculosis and addiction and is a life-affirming practice in that rather challenging world.
