Dear Iyengar Yoga Teachers and Practitioners,

We’re writing with some exciting news about the release of the new documentary Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, and the Student’s Journey directed by Jake Clennell.

As never before, the film brings you into the asana hall during Guruji’s personal yoga practice, watching him continue to refine his yoga well into his nineties, even as he passes on his knowledge to his granddaughter Abhijata. Featuring never-before-seen interviews with the Iyengar family including Geeta, Abhijata, Prashant, and Guruji himself, as well as long-time students and friends, the film explores his legacy and wide-reaching influence among yoga practitioners and shows how his teachings have been adopted for the social good, leaving audiences enlightened and inspired.

We think you will be excited to see and share this film!

Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, and the Student’s Journey is being released via a platform called Theatrical on Demand®, which allows passionate individuals to set up premieres of the film at their local movie theater. These “Movie Captains” can choose the date and time of the screening (and attend for free) and are encouraged to turn it into an event for their local community. The premieres only move forward if enough people RSVP to attend, so it’s important to get the word out by inviting your friends, telling your students, sharing in your studios, etc. The film’s team will provide Movie Captains with all the materials they’ll need for a successful premiere.

We’re reaching out today because we need your help!

We believe this film has the potential to reach a wide audience, but it’s passionate folks like you who we need to sign up to become Movie Captains and help spread the word. The premieres can be used as fundraisers for 501(c)(3) charitable organizations or as promotional or community engagement events for yoga studios or other local organizations. You can customize the premieres however you want to best benefit your community. In addition, a portion of the proceeds of the film’s release will go to the Bellur Trust via IYNAUS to continue Guruji’s charitable works in his hometown in India.

What if there’s already a premiere set up near me?

So far, there are 24 premieres (and counting) set up across the U.S. If there’s already one near you, we’d love your help spreading the word about it. You can email us at the address below to be connected with the premiere’s organizer. If the date of the existing screening doesn’t work for you, feel free to set up another one! We fully expect the film to play in each city multiple times.

We believe this is a vital opportunity to spread the word about Iyengar yoga and Guruji’s teachings and one from which we can all benefit. We hope you agree and will consider becoming a Movie Captain and bringing the film to your community!

To set up a premiere, visit iyengarmovie.

Thank you,

Wendy Walters
