The health benefits of a meditating on a regular basis are numerous.

Meditation strengthens brain function by improving focus and concentration. It is also a completely natural, safe and painless means of relieving stress, anxiety and depression, lowering high blood pressure, aiding in weight loss, and reducing the risk of heart disease and other chronic medical conditions.

Just as there are many different styles of yoga, there are also different meditation techniques or methods. When first learning how to meditate, it is very helpful to focus on a particular technique or method.
