A sparkling new series introducing five unforgettable women who flock to yoga at turning points in their lives and find the gift of lasting friendship.
The yoga studio is where daily cares are set aside, mats are unfurled, and physical exertion leads to well-being, renewal, and friendship. An aggressively expanding chain of Los Angeles yoga "experience centers," has Lee and her extraordinary teaching abilities in its sights. They woo her with a lucrative contract, a trademarked name for her classes, and a place for her handsome musician husband. But accepting the contract means abandoning the students at the homey studio Lee runs in L.A.'s Silver Lake district- and leaving behind four women whose friendships are suddenly more important to her than retirement benefits and a salary increase.
Tales from the Yoga Studio is an insider's look at the current obsession with yoga, told with enough humor, wit, and warmth to charm and delight readers, whether or not they've ever done a Downward Dog.
Yoga pants are optional for this slow series setup revolving around L.A. yoga teacher Lee and four devoted students in her orbit Hollywood deal maker Stephanie, dancer Graciela, ex-druggie Katherine, and actress Imani. Each comes with her own personal career and romantic melodramas, but fear not: yoga will bring them together, and though it doesn't get full credit for straightening out their jumbled lives the friendships forged by this diverse gaggle of L.A. gals does that it helps sculpt great bods and peaceful souls. Mitchell's debut is straight out of the hobby-as-salve-for-the-soul playbook, but with yoga mats instead of knitting needles. If sweet tales of friendship, bonding, and downward facing dog are your thing, this should be an agreeable diversion.
