What People Are Saying About Chakra Power
“Geri’s workshop was amazing and fun! In an afternoon, she took us through the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of the chakras in an informative and experiential way. Under the loving and wise hand of Geri Arnais, I felt like I was being initiated into each of these seven aspects of existence. Patanjali couldn’t have done it better!”

“Geri walks, talks and looks the perfection of which she teaches. Her knowledge is an accumulation of her many years of traveling around the world seeking perennial wisdom and returning to teach others. Learning from Geri is straight forward, lots of fun, and definitely very keen –truly insightful.”

“The seminar was informative, revitalizing and centering. Geri has a beautiful gift of bringing science and spirit together showing how they support each other in a way so easy to understand. She allows you to take time to embody the power of yoga, breath and movement, revealing the powers of healing.”
Yoga Instructor, Malibu, CA.
“Instantly in the presence of Geri, I knew I was where I was supposed to be. Daily stresses melted away and everything looked brighter and clearer just as she proclaimed everything in this moment is perfect! In one afternoon, I peeled away layers revealing my true self and discovered how changing my life is within my power the moment I tune into it. The next day, I felt tremendous calm, yet felt energy bursting from every pore of my body. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with Geri.”

What People Are Saying About Geri’s Thai Yoga Massage
“Geri’s massage pulsated a renewed life force through every cell. My body was twisted, shaken, turned this way and that way, pushed, pulled, and pressed with fingers, palms, elbows, knees and heels. At the end, I was relaxed, yet very much alive. The mind tried to follow the intricate technique for a little while, then became blank. Every now and then a question would pop up, “How does she do that?” but it was a lot easier to just empty the mind than to look for an answer. The soul, in a state of bliss, seemed to have disappeared somewhere between the body twists and the mind folds. I emerged recharged, content and whole.”
IT Consultant, Thousand Oaks, Ca.
“Geri’s intuitive wisdom and consummate skills were so apparent as she manipulates the body, gently stretching, softening tight places and making all my joints more flexible. The level of complete relaxation and feeling of renewal was a glorious gift!”
Symphony Music Conductor,
& Yoga Instructor, Brentwood, Ca.
“I found Geri’s massage relaxing and invigorating, as though I had a Yoga stretch class and a massage at the same time. I particularly loved the feeling of stretching in ways I could not do by myself, such as the outward stretching of my feet and legs, the abdominal work and the assisted backbends. Of course, my feet are still feeling the benefits of the massage. I’m sure a combination of that kind of bodywork and Yoga leaves me totally balanced.”

“My session with Geri was a most extraordinary physical and mental experience. Geri exudes the grace and professional distance that allowed a very intimate and sensual experience wherein I felt my body surrender to its own deeper health and physical possibility. It can only be described as an innocent dance between two bodies that she confidently leads through unexpected territories of both physical and mental reinvigoration. Geri’s enormous energy, vital spirit, and talent for manipulating the human body comes from an intuitive knowing and sensing of range of function and limitation combined with remarkable empathy and strength that lets you know you are in safe hands. This is a unique and unforgettable gift Geri expresses through her art and natural affinity. She takes you on a memorable journey; that in my case, left me physically exhilarated and eternally grateful for this remarkable practitioner of the healing arts.”
