Meditation is a part of Yoga. Yoga combines both physical and mental aspects in it while Meditation is only on the Mental aspect. But physical fitness is required before you sit for meditation. You can meditate better if you practise Yogasanas and Pranayama with that. So start with Asanas, then to Pranayama and later to meditation.
There is not fitness method which can challenge Yoga.

I ve had Fibromyalgia for about 25 years now and am doing so bad it s scary. I ve changed my diet over the years and eat really well, vegetarian, no nightshades, all organics, well balanced. I meditate and do Yoga and started pool therapy but I become a wreck, even when I take it easy. My mind is going. Memory loss and confusion and balance is awful. About 4 years ago I had a fall and got Complex Regional Pain Syndrome to go with it. My chronic sinusitis has become unbearable with roaring in my ears and insane sinusitis. At 58, I m getting scared my mind days are numbered. Sincerely, R. Jane Gagner
