History of Yoga, directed by Ramji Om and Deepika Kothari is a English documentary of 98 minutes. The film traces the origin of yoga in the Harappan civilization, and its subsequent development in Vedic, Jain, Buddhist and other doctrines. It makes references to hatha yogic practices of medieval times wherein the focus of study and practice was to conquer disease, aging and death. The film’s journey in time comes to a halt in the 19th century where modern science acknowledges the potential of yoga in a new light. Besides views from eminent scholars on the subject, the film includes historical and archaeological evidence filmed at 80 archaeological sites, relics and wall paintings from 35 museums and also glimpses of rare manuscripts.
