Lifetime has an exciting roster of thrillers that highlight the depravity of human nature. ‘Psycho Yoga Instructor,’ initially filmed under the title ‘The Perfect Pose,’ is a perfect addition to the list. The premise follows Justine Grace, a woman who’s at odds to sort out her life. She tries to fix her marriage with Tom, her husband. Their efforts to reconcile go for a toss when Domenic, a handsome yoga teacher, takes an interest in Justine.
However, just as things begin to look up for Justine, who believes that Domenic might be the one, matters take a darker turn. It appears that Domenic wants to go far beyond what Justine might have anticipated, and the woman has to rely on inner strength to save her life and marriage from the sociopath trying to seduce her into a perfect pose. Naturally, the setting accentuates the thrill of the tale, which might make you wonder where it has been shot. We have the details and will introduce you to the cast.
