The Wrestler's Cane film screening

Explore the ancient art form of pole yoga in collaboration with Indigo Eye Productions

Tuesday 9th April 2024, 6:30PM


The Nehru Centre is delighted to present a very special evening themed around Philippa Frisby’s new documentary, ‘The Wrestler’s Cane’, which explores the ancient art form of pole yoga, also known as Mallakhamb. We will see a 4 minute version of this documentary feature.

Our host, yoga devotee, lecturer and broadcaster, Daniel Simpson, will then discuss the connections between ‘Pole Yoga’ Mallakhamb and ‘Hatha Yoga’ with the sport’s pioneering champion and guru, Shri Uday Deshpande and Baluji Shrivastav OBE.

However, before that discussion takes place, we are thrilled to be hosting a sitar recital by the world famous multi-instrumentalist and celebrated composer, Baluji Shrivastav OBE, who is in the film and learnt Mallakhamb with Uday Deshpande.
