When you undertake a yoga practice, there is a lot to learn. As time goes by, your practice deepens and the lessons become more subtle. What can you expect if you continue your practice for decades?

Omega Institute Self-Therapy as Care, Not Repair by Thomas Moore
People get so caught up in the content of their spiritual enthusiasms that they may give little thought to the emotions involved. Some adults tell me that they still follow the values taught in the church where they grew up simply because their family believed in it so firmly. It’s the family that accounts for the strong faith, not the spiritual ideas. More
Omega Institute How to Make Your Yoga Class More Trauma-Sensitive: An Interview With Hala Khouri
An Interview With Hala Khouri
Omega: You have described how people can respond to trauma by being anxious and hypervigilant (stuck “on”), or by being dissociated and spacy (stuck “off"). How do you lead a class that accommodates both of these reactions to trauma? More

"My definition of learning is discovering that something is possible." —Fritz Perls Our planet began its passage between Mars and the Sun recently, which astrologers call Mars retrograde. That started April 17 and ends June 29. Mars is rarely retrograde, so this qualifies as a special event. It will be retrograde in Sagittarius and Scorpio. More
Omega Institute What to Expect From Meditation: An Interview With Culadasa
An Interview With Culadasa
Omega: What is the biggest challenge for beginning meditators? Culadasa: The biggest obstacle of all, without question, is establishing a regular daily practice of a reasonable length. The most important thing is consistency. I encourage people to meditate every day, no matter how long they can do it. Then I encourage them to work their way up to 45 minutes. And I don’t mean just sitting there and daydreaming—I mean actually meditating. More

An Interview With Robynne Chutkan
Omega: Your mantra is "live dirty and eat clean." What do you mean by that? Robynne: To “live dirty" means to restore our essential connection with nature and with the trillions of microbes that call our bodies home—and whose survival is inextricably linked to ours. To “eat clean” means to eat unprocessed food from nature (mostly plants) grown responsibly, without harmful pesticides, etc. Omega: What’s your personal recipe for feeling your best? Robynne: I feel my best when I hit this triad: More
Omega Institute What It Takes to Teach Yoga in Schools by Traci Childress and Jennifer Cohen Harper
Teaching yoga in schools is first and foremost about teaching yoga to children and youth. Being in conscious relationship with our students in this situation means being educated in youth development and able to adapt our teaching to the way children learn. All children do not react to the world in the same way, and we must educate ourselves about the many things that can affect our students’ experiences. We need to: More
Omega Institute Unlock the Body's Medicine With Yoga
An Interview With Madan Bali
Omega: Can you describe the basic principle of your yoga practice? Madan: I’ve been teaching, researching, and coming up with new insights since 1969. Yoga has much more to offer than we think. We have the finest technology available on this planet in our own body. The body writes its own prescription from moment to moment. Just think about when we go into deep sleep, there’s nothing to be done, nothing to be fixed. Everything is being done for us. More
Omega Institute Tune In to the Life You Want by Pam Grout
Reality ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it’s not a stretch to say that everything you think is real is not. Physicists, for going on 100 years now, have not known what to make of the fact that Newton’s classical view of the world has absolutely no bearing on the way the world works at its core. The subatomic realm so defies all reason and logic that most scientists, scared to endanger their academic credentials, have more or less ignored the fact that life is nothing like what we pretend it is.
