'Namaste, Bitches' is the name of a comedic webseries that aims to expose the truth about yoga culture in America by examining the "underbelly of the yoga world." When drawing inspiration for the series, creator and star Summer Chastant sought to create something like an exposé that reveals the often cutthroat nature of the health and wellness industry in Los Angeles.

The series builds off of Chastant's own experiences where she witnessed inconsistencies between yogis not practicing what they preach. The six-episode series includes yoga teachers who encourage good health but smoke, sleep with students or even use drugs right before teaching a class.

In documenting the struggle of spiritual surrender in modern life, the viral series instantly became a hit with women who struggle, but strive to find balance in their lives.
