Emma Balnaves | Australia 2019 | 64m | UOffering an experiential collage of action and stillness, light and darkness, sound and silence, Agniyoganaexplores the richness of traditional Hatha Yoga teachings. The film takes the viewer on a journey through time and space to rediscover the inner dimensions of Hatha Yoga and the true meaning of yuj (yoga).The documentary begins with a visual and aural initiation. The journey inward then explores the key requirements of Hatha Yoga: firmness of mind; the importance of faith; the necessity of a qualified teacher; skillful moderation; the methods to restrain the senses; and the practice of universal equanimity. Throughout the film the microcosm of the internal self is examined in relation to the macrocosm of the elements, seasons, time of day, and other external forces of nature. The narrative is woven together through commentary, wisdom, and insight from those who continue to uphold and live by the ancient ways of yoga. Throughout,Agniyoganaoffers rarely seen glimpses of traditional Hatha Yoga practices as expressed by modern day yogins.Agniyogana is a meditation.We are delighted to welcome Susan Neal who will give a short introduction to the film. Susan is a Yoga Scotland qualified teacher following the tradition of the Himalayan Institute.
