Omega Institute Dancing Meditation 101
What it is: Dancing meditation helps you cultivate a sense of oneness as you focus on the music and rhythms of the dance. The practice can be quiet and meditative or ecstatic, rhythmic, and trance-inducing. Some forms of dancing meditation encourage you to interact with others, sing, or make noise as you dance.   More
Omega Institute Seeking Higher Self by Beryl Bender Birch
The Journey Within
Yoga is simple. It only takes a little attention, a little practice every day, and soon we realize we have developed a regular practice. We meditate for ten or fifteen minutes every morning; we do a regular asana practice. We use the breathing exercises or a yoga nidra recording to relax and calm the mind. More
Is Your Yoga Really Working? by Hala Khouri
You know your yoga practice is working when your life gets better, not when your yoga gets better. You know who I’m talking about. Maybe this was you; maybe this is you—the mala bead wearing, namaste talkin', slightly arrogant, super neurotic, I-never-eat-meat-refined-flour-or-nonorganic-food type. The person who looks down on anyone who doesn’t do yoga, isn’t vegan, has “negative energy,” or has a corporate job. More
Omega Institute Back to Yoga Basics by Rodney Yee
Anytime you want to reboot your practice, you can come back to the yoga basics. When considering which poses to choose, I thought: If I had a group of beginners, which poses would I focus on that would be foundational poses for the rest of their lives and why? These are my choices: More

Omega Institute Field Notes from a Katonah Yoga Class
I thought I knew what to expect when I arrived (on time) at Abbie Galvin’s class. I’d read about the Katonah Yoga practice and heard other yogis speak highly about the New York City studio. But as I made my way into the bright, clean room, I wondered if I was in the right place. The room was full of students resting in a deep supported back bend as if they’d been in place for some time. I checked my watch: 10:01 a.m. More
Omega Institute Yoga & Breast Cancer: What the Research Shows
What the Research Shows

Omega Institute Bringing Attention to the Small Stuff: Yoga Class With Rodney Yee by Suzanne Boothby
Yoga Class With Rodney Yee
It’s 8:55 a.m. and the subway from Brooklyn into Manhattan is paused on the bridge. I’m late for yoga class, a not so unfamiliar feeling, but this morning I don’t want to be late. I’m attending class with a teacher I’ve “known” for years, thanks to his instructional yoga videos. More
Omega Institute Pause and Absorb by Colleen Saidman
In 2006, Rodney and I had the privilege of taking a few classes with B.K.S. Iyengar. When it came time for headstand, I informed the yoga master that I didn’t do them—I have a seizure disorder, and I always felt it was aggravated by headstands. He told me, in no uncertain terms, to stand on my head now! And I did. I stayed up, and only came down when he said it was time. More
