  "Great acting and a fantastic script..... a funny, brave comedy to shake up hard-nosed, yoga enthusiasts....The main character fools the audience into believing that her teaching motives aren't entirely ethical but as the plot unfolds, she reveals hidden depths and sad truths that ultimately make it impossible not to warm to her ... a definite must-see!"  "Great acting and a fantastic script..... a funny, brave comedy to shake up hard-nosed, yoga enthusiasts....The main character fools the audience into believing that her teaching motives aren't entirely ethical but as the plot unfolds, she reveals hidden depths and sad truths that ultimately make it impossible not to warm to her ... a definite must-see!"-Julia Sinclair  ,MassageTherapist 

Face it ! Took the Buddha seven years to reach the 'state of Nirvana'-but that's without planned engineering works.(Srhi Srhi )

 

 

 This show is a multi- media , hilariously funny and sad  play written by  new writer Mahny Djahanguiri and quite  possibly Britain's first   EVER  yoga  dark comedy .

Sold out at last years Camden Fringe, and featured in Yogamagazine this show is for everyone! Highly Commercial and Controversial the play studies Americas obsession with 'Self-Help' versa  Britain's more passive approach  to ' fancying a cuppa ?' 

Set in an London gym during the Bird Flu and recession , L.a. yoga Guru Shri Srhi Samnahta,Sarvangasana aka Sam , is faced with a half empty class of burnt -out city bankers and desperate housewives .Heir newly developed - eight -step yoga program doesn't seem to impress her new -found students .As her anal gym Manager is threatening to  cancel her classes she is forced to find the key as to what makes Britain tick.

After a brief but over exerting  shopping spree at Selfridge's  she finds herself stuck on the Central line next  Freddie ,a washed- out twenty something tube poet who gives her pearls of wisdom far greater then shed ever expected.

Her classes become full as each week she extracts more pearls of wisdom from her new found friend.But Freddie has other matters on his minds , and decides to jump onto the train tracks at Moorgate.

She saves him by a hair split second but  continues to ignore the warning signs of her subconscious mind striving forth to become the first living female saint with a Balenciaga bag. She deceives her class into believing that her mom is terminally ill.Donations come flying from all corners but Karma cleverly awaits her in the wings.
