A new web series called Om City debuts in the fall starring actress and yoga teacher Jessie Barr.
In a series of episodes that range from about five to ten minutes, we see harried New Yorker Grace scrambling around the city, from yoga class to private appointment to very occasional social engagement. Barr, being an actual instructor, knows the terrain and the tone, and so is very convincing in the role. If you've ever wondered about the realities of this profession, "Om City" gives a gently funny but pointed look behind the scenes. It also specifically addresses the kind of thorny issues (including lecherous male clients) that female yoga teachers deal with on a daily basis.
