Yoga Meditation Benefits Balance, Strength And Peace of Mind

There are many yoga meditation benefits that are less obvious than physical health. Sometimes life just deals us a particularly difficult hand of cards to play. Having a sense of being centered within ones spiritual and physical person can help us play that hand of cards best. Ellie Chamberlain found yoga meditation to be a source of health and strength after her husband of 30 years passed away. Read more about some of Ellie’s experiences as written by Chava Wiebe for the Bellingham Herald.

In February, Chamberlain’s husband of 30-plus years, Bob, died after a seven-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Fortunately for her, her late husband’s three children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren all live nearby in B.C.

Important advice: A counselor at Alzheimer Society of Washington, a support and education group, offered this guidance: “Keep yourself healthy.”

Chamberlain took the advice to heart and began taking yoga classes more than two years ago. Yoga offered her a peaceful feeling and an outlet for stress, both especially helpful as she dealt with her husband’s illness.”Yoga was a holistic, physical and mental release for me during an incredibly difficult time,” she says.

Yoga also has helped Chamberlain improve her balance, flexibility and strength. “I’ve had balance issues that many people my age have, such as having to hang onto rails,” she says. “By stretching and keeping yoga a consistent part of my life, I’ve found my muscles don’t ache as much, and I have more energy. It motivates you to keep moving, and helps you keep a positive, healthy attitude.”

The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, the language of ancient India. It means union, integration, or wholeness. It is an approach to health that promotes the harmonious collaboration of the human being’s three components: body, mind, and spirit.
