Omega Institute Measure Your Success By How Much Fun You're Having by Gabrielle Bernstein
For the past two years I’ve made the intention to measure my success with how much fun I’m having. I came to this intention after living in the opposite way and hitting bottom. For a while I was measuring my success based on my level of stress, but then I surrendered to the fact that true success must be based on happiness. More
Omega Institute The Secret Life of Kirtan by Krishna Das
People ask me, “What is your experience when you chant?” I don’t know what to tell them. What I do is a little mystical and mysterious, even to me. I can’t explain it. When I sing I start to release my thoughts and feelings and the stuff of the day. I start to get quieter inside.

You can engage in a series of practices, described below, to help align you with the fresh energy of morning and carry those rhythms into the rest of your day. More

108 Important Sanskrit Terms
Originating in ancient India and considered to be one of the oldest languages on Earth, Sanskrit is still relevant to yoga practice today. Sanskrit is, quite literally, the language of yoga.
