– George Rennie, Lost in Theatreland

“a masterful performance”

– Holly O’Mahony, CULTUREWhisper

“gloriously funny”

– Randall David Cook, FringeReview

a hilarious cleanse of the chakras

– Greg Stewart, Theatre Weekly

One of the “Top 50 Shows to See at Edinburgh Fringe” in 2023

– the Guardian

“Yoga with Jillian is as funny as it is cathartic, an honest and accurate representation of where many (most?) of us are right now. Work through the pain and go see it: it’ll be good for you”

“Played with both comedic flair and genuine pathos, by Michole Biancosino”

– ThinkingTheater

“Promises to give your chuckle muscles a good workout.”

– BWW Scotland

“Quickly, we learn Jillian isn’t exactly the peaceful yogi who’s going to guide you through a gentle sun salutation.”

“The play is funny.”

“The show is about our strategies to cope with a world that seems to be getting more unhinged by the day.”

– Jenn Jarecki, Vermont Public

“Teaching yoga at height of pandemic ripe for comedy in new Colorado Springs solo show”

– Jennifer Mulson, The Denver Gazette

In this immersive play, yoga teacher Jillian plans to take the audience through an amazing, incredible, fantastic, one hour yoga journey. But the past couple years have been tough, am I right? As Jillian tries to teach again in our changed world, the shiny, happy yoga teacher attempts to keep the class, and herself, from completely imploding. 

Audiences – feel free to bring your mat or watch from your seat! Yoga is encouraged but never 
required. We promise you’ve never seen a play like this before.

Yoga With Jillian was developed at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury, VT, Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington, VT, and at Pittsburgh City Theatre as part of Momentum Festival 2022, premiered at A.R.T./New York Theatres in June 2023 as part of Project Y’s 8th Annual Women in Theatre Festival, and toured internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe.
