Just as physical fitness conditions the body, spiritual fitness nourishes the soul.
Meditation, visualization and relaxation can help you improve stress-related conditions such as anxiety, hypertension and insomnia. Proper breathing forms the basis for successful meditation and visualization. We suggest you begin with breathing exercises, especially if you’re new to this spiritual experience. The more often you practice these exercises, the more adept you will become and the more you will benefit.

Breathing:

Make correct breathing a part of your life and possess a powerful tool for relieving stress.

Meditation:

Meditation is a coming home to the quiet place within us, to where and when we are very relaxed, still and calm. Meditation is focusing on the simple, relinquishing the racing, analytical mind and allowing the moments of stillness and calm.

Visualization:

The images in our minds eye can be powerful tools for influencing our physical and emotional world.
