Halle Berry has noticed a change in her general wellbeing since taking up yoga.

The Monster's Ball actress took to Instagram on Friday to upload a black and white photo of her performing a headstand in a garden while wearing only a pair of bikini bottoms.

In the caption for the image, Halle explained that she's become much happier since adopting regular yoga and meditation sessions into her regime.

"Today, let's talk not just about yoga poses, but also about the meditative aspects of yoga," she wrote. "Many argue that some of the happiest people are those who spend time each day meditating. I can tell you that I've felt happier and more like my best self since I started."

The 51-year-old went on to state that she believes she has become more intelligent and creative since taking up the holistic practices. She also urged her 2.5 million followers to try and take a minute out of their busy days to pray or meditate.

"I've learned that meditation helps to balance your left brain and right brain, and as a result, I feel more creative, I can absorb information faster and I experience better emotional health," the mother-of-two shared. "Meditation also helps me stay in touch with my 'little me', that little girl who keeps me curious and open to the newness of each day and every new experience that comes my way.

"Meditation keeps me connected to God, Mother Earth, a higher power or whatever you prefer, and reminds me that while we are all on a solo journey, we are never alone! So today, if you don't already, try to find 20 minutes to meditate or pray. If you can make this ritual a part of your dailies, watch how your life will transform!"

Since January, Halle has been sharing her fitness tips on Instagram alongside her new personal trainer, Peter Lee Thomas.
