Omega Ramps Up Virtual Experience to Better Serve Growing Global Community & Increase Access


The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, a nonprofit in New York’s Hudson Valley that has provided omega-institute-for-holistic-studieslearning opportunities to more than 1 million people since 1977, has taken steps to reach a wider global audience with fewer barriers to access than ever before. With help from Savas Labs, a Durham, NC-based web design firm, Omega has launched a new responsive website with enhanced functionality, including access to online learning and a vast library of content that will deliver a rich, immersive educational experience to inspire and engage visitors at eomega.org.

“In the face of complex global challenges, the need for hope and healing is urgent, and the desire for connection and transformation is real. One of the important lessons of the past year has been that people near and far are hungry for the educational tools and inspiring resources we provide on our Rhinebeck campus,” said Robert “Skip” Backus, chief executive officer at Omega. “We are thrilled to be able to better translate our vibrant campus curriculum to online learning, and make it easier for people to access our robust offering of free content.”

Omega online learning opportunities range from short-format classes and livestreamed events to longer self-paced courses available on demand. Additionally, a library of free content includes nearly 300 mindfulness videos, 200 stress management videos, 50 yoga videos, 100 recipes, monthly horoscopes, an award-winning podcast, hundreds of articles, and more. The newly improved website allows for a more intuitive experience, making it easy to search topics, navigate workshop offerings, and browse content from any device.

While Omega’s virtual experience and membership are available 365 days a year, its campus in Rhinebeck, NY will continue to operate seasonally, welcoming guests annually between May and October for in-person workshops, conferences and rest and rejuvenation retreats.
