Five unforgettable women. One beloved yoga studio. A million tales to tell.
Lee is a caring yoga teacher who changes lives and inspires friendships. But a year after the breakup of her marriage, she's struggling to raise her twins and make ends meet at her small studio in LA's trendy Silver Lake. The California yoga scene is dominated by celebrity teachers with agents, publicists, and other trappings Lee has rejected. When she's offered a teaching stint at a high-profile yoga festival at Lake Tahoe, she has to choose between standing by her principles--and those of the man she's just started dating--and the lure of becoming a "star." It would be an easier choice if her four best friends could join her, but each has problems of her own.
Katherine, a masseuse with a troubled past, is being evicted from the only real home she's ever had.
Graciela, a dancer, is in New York trying to hide her affair with a famous baseball player from her volatile boyfriend.
Imani is a TV actress coping with motherhood as she's struggling to make a comeback in film.
Stephanie, a screenwriter, is trying to come to terms with a very unexpected relationship.
Head Over Heels explores the burgeoning world of commercialized yoga with the warmth, humor, and insider knowledge that won Rain Mitchell's Tales from the Yoga Studio raves from critics and yogis, and made the book an international success.

"The five friends from TALES FROM THE YOGA STUDIO are back on their mats. It's a year after the end of that book, and a lot has changed. Lee is coping with the demise of her marriage, the expansion of Edendale Yoga, and trying to figure out why David Todd, incredibly elusive (and attractive) teacher, is not returning her calls. When Lee's new manager signs her up for a teaching stint at Flow and Glow, a yoga and music festival deep in the California mountains, she hesitates. The world of celebrity yoga teachers and expensive yoga fashion is not exactly her scene. But can she afford to turn down the chance at becoming a "star," especially when she learns that Kyra Monroe, her longtime rival, will be in attendance? It would be more tolerable if her friends could join her, but commitment-phobic Katherine is dealing with her boyfriend's desire to move in together, Imani is deep into the difficult shoot of the film Stephanie has written, and Graciela is in New York, trying her best to fend off the advances of an internationally famous baseball player. Rain Mitchell explores the burgeoning world of commercialized yoga, celebrity teachers, and Woodstock-like yoga gatherings with the same warmth, humor, and insider insight that made the Tales so special"--
