In previous articles I have shown how we can implement a greater sense of Spiritual Wellness in our everyday lives. Spiritual Wellness all starts in the mind. There's a tried & true saying that goes: What we take in is what we'll give out. This goes for food, lyrics to our favorite songs, thoughts, and positive/negative energy. To elevate our spiritual being we must understand that it's a mindframe that you have to be in and preserve. "All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
"The mind is everything. What we think, we become." -Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Transcendental Meditation. A popular way to center your mind in through yoga and meditation. Dr. Andrew Newberg, M.D. (specializing in brain imagery research) has shown that during Yoga and Meditation there is an increase in the activity of the pre-frontal cortex of our brain. This area of the brain is associated with love, creativity and conscious thought.
The practice of Yoga and other mediation methods are so powerful and unique that classes are being offered everywhere; even in the church.

I have tried Yoga, and outside of it being physically challenging (haha) I found it very relaxing and self-centering. When enhancing your Spiritual Wellness being in a positive atmosphere and mindset is very important. Spiritual Wellness is about living life in perfect balance within our body, mind and spirit, and Yoga can definitely enhance that experience for you.
