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
Do Your Own Work & Own Your PartSean Corn   There are many ways to become an effective game changer, but in the context of spiritual activism, committing to your inner work and transforming your own limited beliefs is primary. More
Omega Institute Yoga for Getting Free by Ram Dass
Since we all spend so much time in our relationships, why not turn them into a yoga for getting free? Living a spiritual life is a strategy for working on yourself for the benefit of all beings. That’s another way of saying that the optimum thing you can do for someone else is to work on yourself—not out of some idealistic sense of altruism, but because getting to oneness for yourself means resolving your sense of separateness to where we’re all family.

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 Which Meditation Is Right for You?
You’ve probably heard that meditation can reduce stress, boost your immune system, and make you a happier, more focused person. But, there are so many types of meditation it can be hard to know which one will meet your needs. 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
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 Nazareth College Leads a Yoga Revolution
Leading members of the Rochester Yoga Service Network (RYSN) were overjoyed to receive news of being awarded housing for six students to attend the 2015 Yoga Service Conference.
