You may find that yoga provides a spiritual connection. Strengthening the body while quieting the mind helps cultivate a sense of awareness and inner peace. Developing a connection to your spiritual side through yoga helps you strike and hold a pose despite the obstacles or other circumstances around you. There are many ways to participate in yoga. Some might decide to participate in a yoga class at their gym, while others prefer a yoga class hosted by their local Jewish community center or synagogue. Some may also prefer to do yoga individually from the comfort of their own home. There is an endless supply of books, DVDs and online programs available to help guide you through yoga.
Whether you prefer to connect to spirituality through meditation and yoga, Psalms, a combination of the two or something completely different, there is not a right or wrong way to engage with spirituality. Connecting to spirituality is a personal endeavor, and it is important to find a path that is right for you.
