YOGA TOWN is a mockumentary comedy about small group of employees challenged in many ways to run their financially struggling yoga studio. Willow, owner of Yoga Town, relies on her staff, made up of her angst ridden teenage daughter, Amber, and her sensitive, star instructor, Chas, to create an environment of ‘real yoga for real people’. Unfortunately, Karma isn’t paying the bills. When a mobile yoga company ‘Go Yoga’ parks in front of their studio, the ante is raised. Willow is forced to go to battle with Elijah, the Pied Piper of Yoga. Everything she can do, he seems to do ‘better’. Willow does what she can to include bringing in a life coach to help indianize the studio. Watch Willow navigate the land mines of life and make every attempt to become a better yogi, studio owner, and parent. The question is, will she? An all-star Vancouver based cast includes Lori Triolo, Jay Brazeau, Vincent Tong, Veena Sood and Ingrid Nilson.
