Yoga of Awakening – Wake Up to Find the Peace You Long For
5-Week Course
with Geri Portnoy

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
– Joseph Campbell

Do you sense that there’s “more to life” than what you are experiencing right now? Are you going through some kind of transition or transformation – a change in your life where something is falling away? Are you hungry to find relief from the constant unpredictability and pressures of life? Are you ready to wake up and know Who You Are? (Even though you might not exactly know what that means, you are curious!)

For thousands of years yoga has been a system for relieving human suffering and cultivating spiritual awakening. It arose when human beings started to feel how painful it was to live as a “separate self.” A longing arose to be more unified, whole, complete, and “connected” to all of life. Spiritual Awakening is the next stage of human development. And unlike thousands of years ago when awakening was available only to a rare few, now spiritual awakening is available to everyday people like you and I. Join us for this life-changing journey! It is your birth right to wake up and Know Who You Are!

  • Come together in a supportive community with others who have a deep hunger for transformational awakening
  • Learn, Practice and Embody the deeper inner practices of yoga which lead you into direct spiritual awakening
  • Collapse the split between your “spiritual life” and your “everyday life” — discover the thread of spirituality woven into the tapestry of each moment of your life
  • Find relief from worry, anxiety, fear, and rumination and take refuge in the unchanging Ground of Your Being
  • Shift from Self-criticism and blame and cultivate a deeper more compassionate relationship with yourself and all of life
  • Move out of the hamster wheel of your thinking mind, and wake up to the peace, power and clarity of finally Knowing Who You Really Are
  • Experience more love in your relationships with your friends, your family and your world
  • Cultivate Emotional Intelligence to respond to life in new creative and empowered ways
