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.Read more ›
Answer: The movie Yoga: Mind, Body and Tortured Souls.
In Yoga: Mind, Body and Tortured Souls vanity is the insanity that's going on here - the competitive vanity of anyone looking to be perfectly pretty or attractive in this world - thinking that this worldly possession will make them truly happy and eternally satisfied, better than someone else - the outward flesh giving them the power and love they want. The problem here with these women is that their concept of beauty is mercenary, grasping and close-fisted. Of course real yoga has nothing to do with this kind of thing - but here in this movie, where wounded searching souls come looking for answers down this false path of so called "yoga" things are not what they seem. Real yoga is like real beauty - is open and free, non-competitive.
This dark supernatural cautionary tale of envious/commercial vanity and your soul packs a formidable and frightful punch.
Not rated, but some language, no sex or nudity, has some scarey and or bloody images - so PG-13 or R?
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.Read more ›

My husband and I had seen this movie as a preview and so I ordered it. It was a good movie, but the preview made it look more exciting, on the edge of your seat type of movie. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Heidi
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.
