You might already have a meditation practice, or you might be looking to start from zero or you might just be looking for more... In any case, you are in the right place!
The results can be seen in as little as 6 weeks of self practice. Benefits include: improve sleeping and rest, more productive and creative mind, blood pressure, mental health, emotional strength, self-empowerment.
Other techniques are more like a massage therapy for relaxation. Mindfitnes is more like going for a run or a session of cardio but for the mind. Although it reverts all sympthoms of stress, it is more a technique to shape the mind.
Combining Mindfitness with other techniques is great but you can practice Mindfitness exclusively and still see amazing result. Mind Fitness works using mental techniques; these mechanical conscious techniques drive the attention to the deepest part of the mind and refine your focus in order to stay there. These techniques are completely self-sufficient. They are simple, easy and effortless. Any current belief remains intact and any foreign belief is not required. No positions or breathing exercises are needed. This is not a belief system. In fact, your own ideas and beliefs remain intact. This practice is ultimately the best method for stress relief available. Mind fitness addresses and deals with stress from two angles: eyes open and eyes closed.

HISTORY OF MINDFITNESS
This meditation technique comes from enlightened monks who have been preserving ancient teachings that are at least 2000 years old. The origins of this type of meditation come from the Vedas, which are ancient texts from India. In the 18th Century these techniques arrived in the west.
In the 1960s, Transcendental Meditation was brought to America by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi where he taught celebrities such as the Beatles. By the 80’s, meditation became popular around the world. Then in the 90’s, Transcendental Meditation got simplified to make it easier to learn and practice.
In 2005, Moris was introduced to meditation by Devi, an enlightened monk that was directly connected to the traditional lineage of ancient teachers. This included Moris as part of the chain of wisdom transmitted by teacher to student from generation to generation. In the same year, Moris took vows in that tradition and became a monk. From this time, Moris has been continuously teaching meditation as well as leading retreats.
In 2007, Moris left the organization to pursue a career in the corporate world as a Human Resources Professional. He became a senior employee at the Government of Ontario in Canada, and a college professor teaching Human Resources. Then in 2010, Moris obtained a certificate as a Yoga Teacher and started teaching in combination with Meditation. During this time, Moris managed to adapt the ancient meditation technique to the high standards of the government and world class corporations to ensure diversity and inclusion is a priority. At the same time, Moris simplified the technique even more by implementing modern methodologies related to adult learning and in particular professional adults. This new meditation technique is known today as Mindfitness.
In 2018, Moris became certified in Mindfulness by the University of Toronto and completed a training in modern psychology taught by a professor from Princeton University.
Today, Mindfulness works as a relaxation practice while Mindfitness is a workout for the mind. Mindfulness meditation has a similar path to Mindfitness. Both techniques come from the ancient Vedic Philosophy. The difference is that Mindfulness comes from the teachings of Buddhism and Mindfitness comes directly from the Vedic literature.
