People always want to know that, can spiritual fitness be gained with physical fitness. The answer is yes. Yes, Spiritual fitness can be gained through physical fitness. Both are part and parcel of each other. More you are physically fit the more will be your spiritual condition. You want to know how? It simple, read carefully and you will find the truth.
What is the purpose of exercise? It doesn`t only provide you physical fitness, but also, the spiritual fitness. Let`s talk about stretching, what it does? When we stretch, it relaxes our muscles. Their whole body feel relax. It produces the same effect, which is produced after shedding tears. The whole body comes with state of peace. Peace is something spiritual as well. Whenever the body is relaxed, it will provide spiritual peace. The more you are active; more you will feel relax spiritually. It means physical and spiritual fitness are not two different things, they are one. They are related to each other.
Yoga is also a kind of exercise, but not exactly the same. There is much difference between yoga and ordinary exercises. Yoga is more spiritual than physical. You will think, how. It`s not a joke or shot fired without any direction or aim. The people, who have gone through yoga, can understand it more easily. Actually in yoga, the first thing, which you have to do, is to bring your mind in a state of rest or peace. You have to wait until your mind is fully in a state of rest. Once you are at peace spiritually, you can proceed further. Lapping without thinking for 10 to 20 minutes is a common example of yoga.
So spiritual fitness is possible, with physical fitness, in fact, I should say that both are one. It will be no exaggeration, to say so.
