who owns yoga

The ancient practice of yoga has been packaged and commercialised in a myriad of different ways over recent decades.

But while this has enabled it to reach millions of people, it has also brought with it the pitfalls of operating in a modern capitalist world.

In this film, we explore the obsession with yoga and the impact this is having on one of the world’s oldestphysical and spiritual practices, and ask: Who owns yoga?

Produced for Al Jazeera English’s Correspondent series, starring Bhanu Bhatnagar. Find out more at
