OM City: The Online Yoga Series You Need to SeeYogi Approved

 "What makes OM City really gel is Jessie Barr’s performance. Barr is like a toned-down Sarah Silverman and makes Grace an incredibly likable character that you can't help but root for."- The Culture Files

"No web show blew me away quite like Om City did this year. Not only is the clever yoga dramedy heartwarming and refreshing, but its production value rivals even the biggest budget online productions the web has to offer."- Decider

"Heartfelt and hilarious...Between Barr’s gal-next-door appeal and the series’ superb production value and soundtrack — not to mention its slew of guest stars, including Chris Messina, Maryann Plunket, Mike Godere, and James Waterston — it wouldn’t be surprising to see Om City picked up as a longer form series in the very near future. At the end of Season One’s seven episodes, we’re reminded why cable networks (a la HBO and High Maintenance) are adopting these short form gems as their own." - Decider

"Equal parts funny, charming and real..." - Yoganonymous
