Some of the most popular “eastern” wellness practices have made a permanent impression on the western physical fitness scene, including the practices of Meditation, Yoga, and a nutrient-dense, Plant-Based Diet.
Meditation has been associated with increased focus, and tension relief, while Yoga is widely recognized as a practice for building muscle, increased joint flexibility, and a way to relax the overactive mind.
