From The Mat To The Modern World:
Ancient Wisdom To Help You Achieve
Anything You Want In Life.
A 4-week online yoga philosophy course with Sara Intonato
It’s ok to admit that life just isn’t working right now.
Yes, I said it.
Behind that caffeinated smile, that overloaded, ultra coordinated schedule and the “I got it handled” persona, can we talk about the bone-drenching stress that you feel?
One more request and it feels as if everything could shut down.
I get it.
We have all been sold a lie about how to live.
We have been browbeaten into believing that busyness and burnout are badges of honor, that overwhelm equals success.
After all, doesn’t everyone feel like this? Aren’t productivity and multitasking the holy grail of battling the increasing barrage of noise?
It’s ok to step away from the crowd and re-define
your sanity, your health, and your life.
I know you are brilliant.
In fact, you are just like me – a high achieving, committed, motivated, ambitious human being. I also know that you believe another way of living is possible.
I want you to know this – it’s not only possible, it’s available for you easily.
And no, you don’t need to clone yourself to make this happen.
Maybe you have been exercising, eating well (between caffeine hits), and even tinkering with mindfulness.
Here’s where it gets tricky; without accountability and proven tools that bring about lasting change, and easy access for the busiest of schedules, implementing what you need soon hits a dead end.
(Just take a look at the abandoned books and goals lists around you for some proof).
Here’s the thing. Maybe you have tried yoga already. Maybe you are a devoted practitioner, even. You go to class and feel great. Then, life happens and you come crashing down again.
You know what I’m talking about.
You leave your mat feeling like you can conquer the world. Until…
- your car gets rear ended.
- your flight is canceled.
- your best employee quits.
- someone close to you suddenly falls ill.
And boom! You feel like you’ve lost all you have learned.
So I’m going to say what nobody else is saying.
If you feel like getting on your mat is not enough, it’s because it’s NOT.
Yes, you read that right.
You need something beyond the mat to help you carry that sense of calm and centeredness into your life every day.
Yoga philosophy is your secret weapon.
Far from being another fad to throw on the pile, this is a practice that goes back 2,000 years, although I bring it to you with a New York twist and a side order of life experience.
So what do I know about all this, anyway?
I suffered from paralyzing anxiety attacks.
I constantly compared myself to others….and felt inferior.
No matter how strong, pretty, intelligent, or successful I was, it was never enough.
I thought to be busy would make me feel accomplished, but it didn’t.
The anxiety worsened and my confidence tanked.
But here is what I did:
Deep down, I knew there was a better way.
So, I increased the frequency of my yoga practice.
I humbly began meditation.
I took my first pilgrimage to India, immersed myself in yoga philosophy, and everything changed.
Once I chose yoga as a LIFESTYLE, all the answers I had been seeking found me.
So I hear you. I know, I really KNOW how you feel right now.
Why take this step for yourself now?
Because things have changed.
We are bombarded with more stimuli than any generation in history, and our insomnia, disease and unused vacation days prove it.
As if that’s not enough, the state of our world our world is overwhelming. People are angry and paralyzed by fear.
As John Naisbitt said, “We are drowning in information but we are starved for knowledge.”
Imagine what is possible for you if you receive the knowledge you really need right now?
Because you’re tired of reason XYZ (political climate, finances, family issues, etc) standing in your way.
You no longer believe that busyness and burnout are badges of honor.
You are DONE waiting to live the life you want.
It’s your time and you’re ready for the next step NOW.
Why yoga philosophy?
Far from being another fad to throw on the pile, this is a practice that goes back 2,000+ years. It’s still here because it works.
After 14 years of teaching yoga, 8 extended trips to India for higher learning, and applying these ancient teachings to life every day, I am living proof that they work during good times and bad.
Like you, my life is busy and imperfect. Yoga practice and philosophy allow me to navigate running my own business, being hands-on wife and mother of two, advocating for my special needs child, and handling the twists and turns of life while still keeping it together.
Make no mistake, without yoga practice and philosophy, I’d drown.
I’ve walked in your shoes and I know how you feel. I give you permission to stop settling and find the better way you’ve been seeking.
Purpose, connection, and peace CAN be at the heart of what you do. Every. Damned. Day.
Imagine having a REAL conversation with your partner instead of rattling off to-do lists over hurriedly eaten meals.
Imagine having so much fun that you forget about your phone all day.
Sleeping soundly at night and waking up refreshed and full of gratitude isn’t just a trite post on Instagram – it’s a reality, and it can be yours, too.
