We captured this meditation during a weekend yoga retreat on video as part of series of online instructional Kundalini yoga films. The series was planned carefully, with a production plan and scripts prepared beforehand so that there was minimal disruption for the retreat participants. We left room for a few pickups and retakes, but essentially it was a simple one-camera shoot on location. We then edited the films, added captions and incorporated them online, with supporting materials such as downloadable worksheets and step-by-step .pdf guides, into a private members-only area of Sada Nam’s website – essentially they became digital products she could sell as a service to her clients worldwide.
