Yoga, Purpose & Action Intensive

Intensive Price Tiers: One of the ways Off the Mat stands for equality and access for all is by creating a pricing tier structure that invites participants to pay based on their income level.

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).

To register, please call 877.944.2002.

Educator Linda Lantieri argues that teaching kids mindfulness and social and emotional learning practices could someday result in doing away with standardized testing in schools. But to get there, she warns, we need to understand that these practices aren't just for managing behavior—when practiced deeply and steadily, they produce a change of heart from within that can lead kids to become more kind and compassionate people.

There's a question going around: How do we convey the social unrest in our nascent era of protest into a sustained movement? There are a lot of problems in the country and in the world that need addressing—and it would seem the powers-that-be are not so interested. It's up to us. I want to take this up as a spiritual question—that is, as a question of the inner life. More

An Interview With Joan White
Omega: Having studied extensively with both B.K.S. Iyengar and his daughter Geeta Iyengar, what have you observed about the role of women in yoga? Joan: One of Mr. Iyengar’s legacies—we call him Guruji—is that he was the first one that taught men and women in the same class. It had been forbidden, but he broke through a lot of Indian taboos in his introduction of yoga to the West, and now everybody can do yoga if they want to. More
An Interview With Florence Meleo-Meyer
Omega: Can we be mindful or present without knowing it, or is it something we need to practice? Florence: At its core, mindfulness is the innate human capacity to be aware. All human beings come with this capacity to know what’s happening as it’s happening, but we are not trained to access that capacity. It takes continuity and discipline to access what’s already here. This capacity to be aware requires you make a choice to be awake in the present moment with whatever is showing up. More
An Interview With Elena Brower
Omega: When you first started teaching, you've said you were afraid to speak from your heart. How did that change for you? Elena: That fear resulted from the fact that I wasn’t being honest about the life I was leading. I was teaching yoga, and breathing, and sitting, and wasn’t always practicing. It was painful to teach the work so well and not be practicing myself.  Omega: Why do you think so many people hide their true selves? More

An Interview With Bizzie Gold
Omega: How did you become an entrepreneur? Bizzie: If I look back at my childhood, I grew up with an “it’s okay to be a boss” mentality. My dad really instilled that in me since I was very young. I can remember being a child and ordering at a restaurant. At four or five, I would have to order for myself and use my manners. My dad always helped me put communication at the forefront of everything that I did. More
8 Best Practices for Teaching Yoga in Schools
Childhood, especially ages 2-10, is a time of exploration, experimentation, and curiosity. It’s a natural period of learning when children attempt to make meaning of their outer and inner worlds. Yoga can help children harness the enthusiasm and natural curiosity of this time to befriend their body and mind, develop a sense of agency and competence, and self-regulate and manage their emotions.

7 Guidelines for Establishing a School Program
Adolescence is a time of tremendous change for children physically and can be particularly intense emotionally. It is also a time when they are deeply engaged in self-discovery and exploring the inner workings and capacities of their identity. More
Uranus Conjunct Eris
Anyone can see that we’re in an extraordinary moment. While there are many facets of astrology to describe, one of them stands tall, which is the Uranus-Eris conjunction. You might say that this conjunction has the theme of choosing whether you want to be in your body or not. This conjunction last came at another revolutionary moment, the dawn of the mass media age in 1927-1928. This was before Eris was discovered in 2005. Now the conjunction is back. Its peak is through 2016 and 2017, though add on seven years to either side for the full span of its effects. More
