Product Description

Striving for the ultimate inner beauty can be deadly. Six gorgeous women from different walks of life decide to check into a high end YOGA studio with extremely strict rules. They follow the extreme rules as best they can to eventually gain the ultimate beauty. Strange and scary events begin to happen in this unusual place and the women begin to wonder why some of the other students go missing. Did they simply drop out of the class because of the rigid rules or is there some other evil presence killing the YOGA class one by one. Who will ultimately survive this horrific adventure to become the world's most perfectly beautiful woman?

When I first saw an advertisement for this movie on the internet I thought it looked kinda - well - dumb. How exactly do you take something like yoga and make it exciting? I suspected that the concept would be fairly shallow and that there would be too much dead weight and/or uninteresting filler material to make it an entertaining film. In addition, I had reservations about what kind of horror sequences could possibly be implemented. Needless to say, I skipped out on a blind buy for a while but eventually took the plunge when curiosity got the best of me. Most fortunately, "Yoga Institute" (2009) turned out to be an enjoyable horror film.

The way it does this is to implement a very interesting main theme: vanity and the striving for perfect beauty. In some ways "Yoga" is similar to films like "Dumplings" (2004) and "Time" (2006) because of their shared amalgamation of vanity and horror, as well as their common focus on communicating the lengths to which some will go to obtain beauty. Of course, the protagonists in "Yoga" are not quite as crazy as the characters in the aforementioned films, but they do have their moments of instability within the confines of the privately owned institute that they visit to perform their week-long series of intense yoga training. While none of these characters are especially complex, they are sufficiently developed to earn the viewer's interest.

Another important scriptwriting decision that makes "Yoga" more interesting than it should be is the introduction of a form of witchcraft.

Yoga is about a young woman,Hyo-jung, who works for a TV network making commercials for lingerie. Hyo-jung is also drawn between the love she feels for her kind but poor boyfriend and social pressure from her friends to marry a rich man. One day our hero is kicked from her job as the network have found a model to take her place and then the cute but normal looking Hyo-jung just is not pretty enough. In desperation to attain perfect beauty Hyo-jung takes the advice of a strange friend to sign up at a mysterious underground Yoga academy, several other girls sign up at the same time, each of whom have their own reasons for seeking perfection, and the girls are promised the chance for eternal youth and perfect beauty if they complete the course, however mysterious and frightening things soon start happening at the academy.

Yoga begins great, it is atmospheric, have some good acting and it it both traditional enough to give you that good feeling of anticipation over sitting down with a good Asian horror flick, and it is different enough to feel original, the story movies around nicely and half way through this movie I was really impressed, then however all went to the hounds. I am not sure what happened if the producers went out of money or what but the last part of Yoga is confusing and sloppy, the ending is anti climatic and unsatisfying and allot of elements are just left hanging, like for example Hyo-jung boyfriend, we never get to see what happens to him. Also the final explanation of what is going on is very confusing and all in all the end of this movie just felt rushed.

Vain women get together in a crazy house that promises the secret of beauty through yoga. The headmistress puts them through a nightmare week of hell and rules that they all end up breaking because they're knuckleheads. It's very boring at first, but hits you in the face with insanity about halfway through. It can be incoherent and implausible from start to finish but that's fine because I've just come to expect that from K-horror. This is definitely one of my favorites in the genre.

This is a rare category. A Korean chick-flick by a chick director with an all-chick (primary) caste. I felt left out. A lot of what transpires is female-oriented.

...and I'm not being sarcastic here....

The film is never as scary as it wants to be. Actually it is never scary or rewarding overtly to me, but I guess to some it apparently is, judging by Reviews. It seems to be mainly concerned with female youth, beauty, acceptance, envy, duplicity (the double-cross), and success in a consumer-society.

While the acting (as always in most Korean films) is stunning and brilliant, the director has filmed this work in what I will call Relentless Shadow Vision---or constantly dark, dull, and claustrophobic. This director shows flashes of raw power and control in framing and picking certain shots, but, sadly, it does not predominate this work. Also, some of it is just cinematically trite or already been used a zillion times.

...okay, so maybe my German Pinscher puppy did interrupt me about 137 times but I think there are plot points missing here or just not explained. Such as: exactly What is the exact deal going on with the yoga-school propriator's eternal beauty, why was the director (in the movie) killed, and the beauty-girl and the Tv girl (i'll avoid a few spoilers here), and a few other things.

...okay so the puppy interrupted me 392 times in a half hour, but I still think the plot needs clarification, especially as a detective (me), I need facts :)

This film is kind of: Yoga Meets Voodoo Meets the Exorcist Meets Envious Betrayal.

I do recommend it for some, and-or maybe those interested in such paranormal horror phenomena; you will be rewarded, I am sure. It's a heartfelt, carefully crafted, stunning work.
