"Enlighten Up" the Movie

A filmmaker is determined to prove that yoga can transform anyone. Her plan?

  • Select a subject.
  • Immerse him in yoga.
  • Follow him until he finds a practice that transforms him.

Her subject? Nick Rosen -- a skeptical, 29 year-old journalist living in New York City.

Before he can say OM, Nick finds himself twisted up like a pretzel surrounded by celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks, and entrepreneurs. The more he investigates yoga the more contradictions he discovers, straying further from the filmmaker's plan.

They circle the globe talking to mystics, gurus, mad men, and saints searching for the true meaning of "yoga," encountering things they never could have imagined. They not only find answers to their questions, they find much more.
