An unconventional biography by Oscar-nominee Paola di Florio and Sundance winner Lisa Leeman about Hindu mystic Paramahansa Yogananda who introduced yoga and meditation to the West in 1920 and authored the non secular basic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” which grew to become the go-to e book for seekers from George Harrison to Steve Jobs.

By personalizing his personal quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles alongside the trail, Yogananda made historical teachings accessible to a contemporary viewers. This documentary examines the world of yoga, previous and new, East and West, and explores why thousands and thousands in the present day have turned their consideration inwards in pursuit of Self-Realization.
