With the yoga movement becoming the ‘religion of choice’ for the urban chic, YOGA TOWN, has become the ‘church of choice’. Just like any ‘movement’, the followers give the leaders ‘hero status’, as if they are impermeable to imperfections. The reality is that these characters are anything, but perfect. And, the competition is fierce. The idea of following a path towards enlightenment is the farthest thing from this World, although everyone is on the road to YOGA TOWN.

When yoga speaks to me it sounds like ET when he says “ET go home”. I’m never sure if it’s just the voices in my head acting up. Yoga says I’m supposed to lead to liberation, what the fuck happened? I’m an animal in a god damned cage. Kinda like me.
