Sadhaka fundraising campaign

July 1, 2013

The  fundraising to complete the editing of Sadhaka: the yoga of BKS Iyengar, a feature documentary by my son, Jake Clennell, has less than 2 days to go. I was there in Pune with Jake when the idea was born. I have watched the video footage as it came back from India over a three year period, and I observed the pilot being edited. Go to to see the trailer, donate and be part of this wonderful feature documentary.
