It's Friday night, you've just finished a beautiful yin yoga class to end the week and you want to vege out on the couch - we got you! Here we've compiled a list of the best things to watch on Netflix for yogi's! So put on some comfy pants...oh wait, you're probably already wearing your yoga pants, make a big pot of chai and some moringa popcorn and enjoy the show!
1. NANETTE - Hannah Gadsby
Honest, articulate, intelligent, open and real are words that come to mind after watching this intense yet inspiring comedy set. Hannah speaks beautifully about connection, about connecting through love not anger. A truely emotionally inspiring story.
2. INNSÆI – THE POWER OF INTUITION
Do you find it hard to find work/life balance? Do you feel on the verge of a breakdown? Then you need to stop. Take a breath and watch this. Awaken your intuition and bring awareness to the here and now. I was so inspired by Marina Abramovic that I delved into a wormhole.
Iris Apfel, the rare bird of fashion, is an inspiration! Fearless not just in fashion but in life. I love her! Her joyous celebration of life is so inspiring, you'll spend the whole movie with a smile on your face.
4. Ram Dass, Going Home
"I am loving awareness". I didn't know Ram Dass, the American spiritual teacher, author of "Be Here Now" prior to watching this documentary, but was so inspired afterward that I went down a Google wormhole, scribbling down many of his famous quotes such as, "we're all just walking each other home" and "the gift you offer another person is just your being."
We had to throw in a little bit of easy feel good entertainment and Lunchbox is exactly that. I love this quote from the movie, "sometimes the wrong train will get you to the right station."
6. Naga, The Eternal Yogi
Take your yoga practice to the next level with this study of yoga and it's origins.
7. Wild Wild Country
If you're in a need of a good binge-worth series look no further. I was very familiar with many of Osho's quotes but not of the controversy surrounding his life.
“Take hold of your own life.
See that the whole existence is celebrating.
These trees are not serious, these birds are not serious.
The rivers and the oceans are wild,
and everywhere there is fun,
everywhere there is joy and delight.
listen to the existence and become part of it.”
8. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odessy
After listening to an interview with the charming Neil deGrasse Tyson (listen to it here), I am totally hooked on this servies. For those days, when I'm a little caught up in the trivial everyday matters, Cosmos helps to give a little perspective and reminds me of how incredible this world is!
9. Planet Earth 2
This was highly recommended to me this week and it did not disappoint! Nature is so flipping amazing! This world is so full of wonder, as yogis, as humans, we really need to take care of this Earth and its inhabitants.
In celebration of the Mexican artists 111th birthday yesterday, and because her strength and resilience is an ongoing celebration, we had to add this to the list!
