Yoga Town Episode 1 – Willow’s Lament
In Episode 1, Willow, our fledging heroine and owner of Yoga Town is facing financial ruin. Our karmically-challenged owner really is trying to do all the right things, but falls short in the karma plate every time. She offers ‘real yoga for real people’. Willow tries, but she really doesn’t know how to run a business. She figures good karma will ‘lead the way’. Too bad the World doesn’t really work that way.
In her efforts to providing ‘real yoga for real people’, her World keeps getting messed up, by people she trusts, including her “I hate Yoga” daughter, Amber; and her overly loyal and lustful instructor, Chas! Stubborn Willow isn’t about to abandon the few clients she has! After all, they need her! So she thinks. Reality hits when Elijah, the ‘pied piper of yoga’, moves in with his mobile Go Yoga truck and sets up shop. The fight is on! Doing real yoga for real people has never been so tough.
In this episode we really get to know Elijah’s persuasions in this one, as well as learning about passionate Chas and his reason for teaching at Yoga Town. Did you know that Chas was once in a reality show called ‘Real Pool Boys of Vancouver’? Unfortunately, he was first voted off the pool deck! Our protagonist, Willow, is pushed to the edge when her competition doesn’t ‘level’. Elijah with his Go Yoga truck is funny fat man who won’t go away. His charm seems to have won over Amber who is enamored by Elijah’s seductive ways and can’t wait to taste his butter chicken! Willow is disgusted and comes up with a plan to get the fat man to ‘leave’! But, will it work? We’ll find out!
