POSTURE is a documentary by Daniel A. Nelson and Nathan Bender. This is the story of professed cultural
misappropriation, a founder disgraced by sexual harassment charges and the dream of being recognized as the
best yoga practitioner in America. POSTURE goes behind the scenes with three yogi athletes in the adult women's
division of the 2016 USA Yoga Federation National Championship as they pose their way toward a shot at the
national title. Each athlete has more at stake than just a congratulatory medal. From chronic illnesses to prosthetic
legs, these yogis bring more baggage than just a yoga mat. They also seek victory against those who oppose
legitimizing yoga as a sport. For the skeptical yoga purists, the competition is seen as an insensitive detachment
from the practice's spiritual roots.
