I See You
Filmmaking brings us in contact with problems of diversity and inclusion constantly: image-making and storytelling are unavoidably about representation. It struck a chord when we came across an essay by Libby Nicholaou about why she was starting a new kind of yoga organization.
When you look at yoga fashion brands, publications, festivals and marketing they often highlight one specific body type — the thin, white female body. If you only looked at mainstream narratives of yoga, you would think that this is the person who makes up the yoga world.
Setu was born out of this observation. An inclusive yoga community where practitioners of different nationalities, races, gender identities, body types, and life stories are welcomed and respected, Setu is a resource for anyone who has ever wanted to find a teacher who might look like, sound like, or feel like a little more like them.
