- Benefits

Unique to the individual. Noticed in myself and others a deep sense of gratitude and compassion. Not because we 'SHOULD' feel that way but because it becomes glaringly obvious, it is the most logical way, the most accurate. A desire to forge meaningful connections with others, an awareness of one's speech... to communicate with honesty and integrity.


The mind influences the body and the body influences the mind. Many find physical relief from physical ailments.

Sharper sensory perception

Master the mind rather than succumb to it

Calm perseverance in the face of challenges

Greater patience with others, less judgment

More developed back muscles
