Do dr. Sayoga meditate himself?
“Yes, I meditate on a daily basis because the practice leads to holistic health. I apply meditation as the foundation of my life to help me go through my day-to-day activities. Meditation is an individual experience and should be done alone. I believe that meditation should be a part of every step we take and every breath we breathe – the basis of our daily lives just like eating, sleeping, drinking and taking a bath.”
