Launched in 2014 as a collaboration between Omega and the Yoga Service Collective, the guidebooks uplift the field of yoga service by sharing the insights, experiences, and knowledge of leading teachers, researchers, therapists, medical professionals, policy makers, and others working to make yoga and mindfulness practices equally available to all. The works include:
Yoga and service have always been core components of Omega’s offerings, and continue to serve as transformative tools for cultivating personal and collective resilience. Yoga service, a growing field, supports individuals and organizations working to make yoga and mindfulness practices community-centered, culturally-sensitive, and inclusive for all, regardless of circumstances.
