URBAN YOGIS is a unique documentary series featuring stories on the transformative power of yoga and meditation.

Beautifully shot, inspiring, and heartfelt - the series delves into the lives of cancer survivors, inner-city youth dealing with violence in their communities, recovering addicts, artists, youth in detention facilities, and more. Comedian Russell Brand, Grammy-nominated musician Moby, "yogi" businessman Russell Simmons, and author/doctor Deepak Chopra also share their stories and insights. Renowned yoga teacher Eddie Stern serves as our host and guide to the stories of these urban yogis.

  • Yoga for me has been up till now and still going on a fulfilling lifestyle of concentration, contemplation, mediation. Body, mind, soul become a unity that will keep one whole, a wholesome healthy entity, full of life and creativity :)

  • The Youth Develpoment Center in NC where I work has recently added yoga for voluntary student participation. I am encouraged by the initial interest and the facilitator has inquired about DVDs by black yogis thinking this might stimulate a little more personal committment. Can you recommend names or programs to contact? Thank you very much!

  • Yoga is great in that it creates that mind-body connection which so many of us lack in this day and age, I hope that it can also transform my life!

  • Yoga is pronounced as `Yog` in India which as noun means `Sum` and as a verb means `to add`. It is an art of adding your consciousness with anything of your choice. Once added you and the target thing becomes one. But Maharshi Patanjali define Yoga as the `Negation of entanglements of mind`. Negation makes your mind free to get added with target. Yoga is the science of the soul. Any one can experiment with soul even if he doesn`t believe in it`s existence. It has nothing to do with whether you are theist, atheist, urban or rural creature.

  • I started doing Yoga intensively about a month ago and it`s been such a friend to me. I do Bikram, Jiivamukti and Ashtanga yoga - I love the unique benefits that they each give so I do them all! I turned to yoga because I was feeling depressed and also I wasn`t happy with my body. Yoga has allowed me to channel negative energy into something positive - ultimately it has sculpted me both mentally and physically - I feel strong :) I just wish more people could discover how brilliant it is!!
