Small Adjustments to “Better Our Best”
Micro-resilience isn’t about weakness. On the contrary, small adjustments help us “better our best” and perform closer to our world-class capability. Repeatedly working to the point of collapse isn’t going to be good enough to get the job done at the level we need. Our bleary eyes and foggy brain eventually bring us to the point of diminishing returns. We begin to introduce errors and inconsistencies that require even more effort to repair. Conversely, strategic recoveries along the way allow us to achieve a new and higher level of the all-in commitment we value so highly. More
“Papa, what’s your battle plan?” My granddaughter Natalia has asked me that question for the three years we’ve been having imaginary galactic battles. Her army is mainly Pokémon, popular characters that come to us from Japan. They have strengths and weaknesses, and the capacity to “evolve” and gain in ability and talent. Natalia is also aided by the usual assortment of additional friends: fairies, ponies, and favorite stuffed animals all lined up on the side of goodness and truth. 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. More
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
Blank Billboard advertising itself
An Interview With Jean Kilbourne
Omega: Today the average American sees 3,000 advertisements a day. What’s the impact of that and how do we respond? Jean: Advertising is hugely more important than most realize—it’s the engine that drives mass media. Television, magazines, websites, and newspapers are all rounding up audiences to be sold to advertisers. That’s their business model. That’s the point. More
AWAKENING THE BEST IN THE HUMAN SPIRIT…for almost 40 years, these words have guided us at Omega Institute in everything we do.
