Finding Warrior Pose

Jaya Gupta is having a bad week. Her dating prospects have fizzled, she has just lost her job, and her traditional Indian-American family expects her to get married.

When her grandmother uncovers the deed to a long-lost plot of land in India, now the home of a world-famous yoga ashram, Jaya is intrigued. Sent on a six-month sabbatical to learn yoga, Jaya is pulled into a new global backpacking scene.

She meets Josh, a fellow traveler, and the all-powerful Panditji, the head yoga master. But when she stumbles upon Panditjiā€™s long-hidden secret on the night of the Shiva Moon Festival, everything changes. With Josh at her side, she sets off on a freewheeling, romantic adventure to find the mysterious source of an ancient secret. In a race against time itself, can Jaya find the inner strength to reach a higher level?
