Awake: The Life of Yogananda

“For followers and for those interested in knowing what yoga is truly about. Hint: It’s not about six-pack abs.” (LA Times)

The surprise sensation of the season! Hindu swami Paramahansa Yogananda brought his yoga and meditation teachings to the West in the 1920s, introducing millions to the practice through classes, lectures, and the classic Autobiography of a Yogi (said to be the only book Steve Jobs had on his iPad). This entrancing portrait examines the varied worlds of yoga—modern and ancient, East and West—and explores its appeal to the many students who have turned their attention inward in pursuit of happiness and self-realization.

3 screenings! 3:00 pm, 5:00 pm, and 7:00 pm
