Yogi is a person who, through years of isolation and self-transforming exercises, has developed extraordinary control over mind and body. The Tibetan yogis featured in this film took unprecedented risks. Once vowed to secrecy to maintain the purity of their practice, they agreed to be interviewed in order to preserve for posterity their vanishing culture. This documentary presents footage never seen before and not likely to be seen anywhere ever again.
For the first time, the reclusive and secretive Tibetan monks agree to discuss aspects of their philosophy and allow themselves to be filmed while performing their ancient practices.
