Seems we’ve been saying it a lot lately, but really, we knew it was only a matter of time.

With our city’s reputation for a yoga studio on every corner next to a coffee shop, we’re surprised that it has taken a local theatre company this long to take our fascination with Bikram, Hatha and Ashtanga to the stage.  Vancouver’s The Chop Theatre is doing just that with a production of Through the Gaze of a Navel, part of Boca del Lupo’s Micro Performance Series.

A performance in the form of a yoga class that audiences can either participate in or observe, Through the Gaze of a Navel  is led by self-proclaimed advice expert Emelia Symington Fedy, a woman who has consumed every new-age pop-psych medicine she could get her hands on.  And to prove she knows of what she speaks, Fedy reveals exclusively to Vancouver Presents the top ten ways over the years in which she has tried to heal.

Namaste, but hold the java!

Through the Gaze of a Navel plays the Anderson Street Space (1405 Anderson St, Granville Island) April 23-27. Visit http://bocadellupo.com for tickets and information.
