TOP RATING! “Comic nirvana … an uncommon comic electricity.” – San Francisco Chronicle

At the top of their game, yoga apparel giant Jojomon is hit with a terrible scandal that sends them into freefall. Desperate to recover their earnings and reputation, newly hired CEO Joan stakes everything on an unlikely plan. Yoga Play is a journey towards enlightenment in a world determined to sell it.
