Find of the Week: French Hatha Yoga Video from the 1950s


The narrator’s voice in this French Hatha yoga video is not soothing, nor is the music. But the yoga certainly looks familiar.

Check out this amazing video from the 1950s of people practicing Hatha yoga in France. Unfortunately, I don’t speak French, but it seems that the video is telling people that if you are stressed out, just perform a few moves and you’ll feel better.

The best part about these old videos is that it proves that good things, like yoga, last forever. And not a lot has changed in 60-plus years. Except, perhaps, the yoga attire. The video isn’t exactly NSFW, but it may be PG-13.
