Omega Institute Field Notes from a Katonah Yoga Class
I thought I knew what to expect when I arrived (on time) at Abbie Galvin’s class. I’d read about the Katonah Yoga practice and heard other yogis speak highly about the New York City studio. But as I made my way into the bright, clean room, I wondered if I was in the right place. The room was full of students resting in a deep supported back bend as if they’d been in place for some time. I checked my watch: 10:01 a.m. More

Yoga Class With Rodney Yee
It’s 8:55 a.m. and the subway from Brooklyn into Manhattan is paused on the bridge. I’m late for yoga class, a not so unfamiliar feeling, but this morning I don’t want to be late. I’m attending class with a teacher I’ve “known” for years, thanks to his instructional yoga videos. More
Omega Institute Pause and Absorb by Colleen Saidman
In 2006, Rodney and I had the privilege of taking a few classes with B.K.S. Iyengar. When it came time for headstand, I informed the yoga master that I didn’t do them—I have a seizure disorder, and I always felt it was aggravated by headstands. He told me, in no uncertain terms, to stand on my head now! And I did. I stayed up, and only came down when he said it was time. More

Omega_Institute_How_to_Start_a_Sadhana_Practice
If you’re craving a deeper connection to yourself and the divine, one way to cultivate it is through a daily spiritual practice. In the yoga tradition, the Sanskrit term for this kind of spiritual practice is sadhana—and its benefits are worth considering. More
Omega Institute Yoga & Mindfulness for Kids by Jennifer Cohen Harper
What 10 Years of Research Reveals
Yoga and other mindfulness practices have been the subject of an increasing amount of research as they have become more popular in the West. For example, science now supports many of the benefits traditionally associated with yoga practice, including decreased stress and increased physical and emotional wellness. Recent advances in neuroscience confirm that contemplative practices, such as yoga and mindfulness meditation, can change the physical structure of the brain, effectively training it to work in more positive and productive ways.
