Not all aggression looks the same. Any act, word, or gesture that pierces through into someone else’s personal space and causes the other to feel unsafe, threatened, or hurt is considered aggression. That could be a look, shouting, pulling a gun, or ignoring someone. More

An Interview With Jon Gabriel
Omega: How did you transition from being a chronic dieter to finding a more holistic approach to weight loss and life? Jon: I came to a place of desperation, where I was 400 pounds. I was exhausted.

I thought to myself, “Here I am killing myself and the universe just gave me a second chance.” More
Omega Institute Standing Meditation 101
What: Standing meditation encourages you to tune into your body—and the present moment—while standing up or holding a specific standing yoga or tai chi pose. Some teachers may invite you to focus on the physical sensations of standing while tuning into the world around you. Others may encourage you to focus on your breathing and/or an internal visualization. More
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
