Omega Institute An Energy Medicine Yoga Exercise to Release Shock by Lauren Walker

Omega Institute What Yoga Is & Isn't: Overcoming Misconceptions About Yoga & Yoga Therapy by Timothy McCall
Overcoming Misconceptions About Yoga & Yoga Therapy
Many people who could benefit from yoga shy away due to misconceptions about what it is and isn't, or who can do it and who shouldn't. Here are some common misconceptions about yoga and yoga therapy. Yoga Isn't...Only for the Flexible & Fit Some people avoid yoga because they think it's only for people who can bend like Gumby. They think it's for the young, strong, and athletic—and if you look at pictures in magazines or sample some vigorous yoga classes you could easily get that impression. More
Omega Institute 5 Sutras for the Aquarian Age by Snatam Kaur Khalsa
Have you noticed that things seem to be moving faster and faster and it takes a certain kind of mental flexibility to keep up? Have you noticed an inherent awareness within yourself that knows the truth? Have you sensed that you don’t really operate as an isolated individual, that your actions are interconnected with everyone? The yogis tell us that we’re experiencing all this because we are now in the Aquarian Age. As you might guess by its name, the Aquarian Sadhana was developed specifically for this time period. More

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
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
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 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
