Yoga, Purpose & Action Intensive

This way, people who can pay more “pay it forward” by supporting those who can’t. Please consider what is truly sustainable for you, and choose a price that feels in integrity: $1,350 Supporter (support other leaders as well as yourself); $1050 Sustainer (pays for you); $750 Community (discounted fee). Scholarships are available.

Omega Institute 3 Yoga Poses to Help You Stand on Your Own 2 Feet by Colleen Saidman
All women, including models, yearn to discover their immense inner beauty and to find inspiration, as well as refuge, as gravity and time alter their outer bodies. Coming to a love of one’s self takes discipline, diligence, and dedication—all keys to being a well-adjusted woman in this crazy world. I aspire for every one of us to be real, to look in the mirror and say, “You are the bomb.” Models seem drawn to yoga in unusually high numbers. My guess is they come because yoga helps them find balance and a sense of self in a profession where outward appearances matter most. More
Omega Institute Resilience & the Yoga of Recovery: An Interview With Nikki Myers
An Interview With Nikki Myers
After her struggle with addiction, Nikki Myers founded Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR), a relapse-prevention program that integrates yoga with the tools of 12-step programs. Myers says that addictive behaviors can disconnect and separate you—from yourself, your loved ones, and your environment. In Sanskrit yoga means "union" and the practice can help restore balance and wholeness, especially for those in recovery. Omega: What does resilience mean to you? More
Omega Institute Moving Through Grief by Ana Forrest
Holding on to anger, fear, or resentment can cause physical pain, but when we heal our emotional pain, our physical pain often subsides. The emotions need to be in motion in order for us to be healthy. We've got to move them and feel them and let them express themselves. More
Omega Institute Secrets of Master Yogis
Yoga can be practiced by anyone, at any age. It helps young and old build strength, find balance, and stay flexible through low-impact movement. B.K.S Iyengar, one of the world’s most well-known yoga masters passed away in 2014, just shy of his 97th birthday. He started life with a frail and sick body but grew to be able to hold conversations while standing on his head, a level of vitality he attributed to yoga.  More

Omega Institute Living Jivamukti Yoga
An Interview With Sharon Gannon and David Life
Omega: You met as artists in New York City in the early 1980s. How did studying and teaching yoga transform your life at that time? Sharon: Yoga informed our life. It provided us something to do together, which was creative, the ultimate creative adventure: self-realization. David: My life transformed into being mainly interested in yoga, yogis, and yoga philosophy—consequently my interest in other things diminished. But most other things that could attract my interest seemed to pale in comparison to the immensity of yoga. More
Omega Institute 10 Ayurvedic Practices for Winter by Shiva Rea
Self-Care for the Quiet Season
1. Sneha—oiling the body, nose, and ears in the evening is nourishing and fortifying for the muscles and connective tissues. As our bodies are exposed to cold and wind, our pores and fascia tighten and roughen in response. Oiling the orifices of the head helps the sensory pathways stay balanced. Favor kapha massage oil, ashwagandha-bala oil, or sesame oil.  2. Do dry-brushing a few times a week to invigorate the tissues and move stagnant lymph and blood. More
