Come see why Tracey Paleo from Gia On The Move calls THE ANTIYOGIUnequivocally, the BEST show at the Hollywood Fringe this year

A “yogi” is not a skinny woman in Lululemon, but someone who renounces worldly life in pursuit of truth. Embark on a journey with Mayuri and the Goddess of Death, Kali, as they investigate absurdities of Western Yoga culture. As a yoga professor, Mayuri finds herself in a twisty identity crisis as she navigates teaching a practice that’s supposed to be her “thing”. What can her purpose be beyond educating people about yoga? Will the formidable Goddess Kali clear her path? Through a unique blend of dance, dramedy, live percussion and poetry, The Anti “Yogi” gives a much needed voice to Yoga, calling out its recolonization in the West and nationalization in the East. This show peels back the yoga mat to reveal the true ethos of Yoga, through a sensory immersive experience!

PS. You don’t have to anything about yoga to see this show ;)

Note: This is a wheelchair accessible venue.
