Perfect synergy of mind and body to communicate with God at regular and defined intervals is best done by regularly reading the Qur'an in a language you can understand and then putting this into practice.
The ritual namaaz was not taught to the Messenger as he only had the Qur'an as revelation and the ritual is not in the Qur'an.
2:177 [One consequence of this schism is their pre-occupation with rituals, with each sect leaving the revelation aside and taking delight in its own set of dogmas they call religion. 30:32] Righteousness and exponential development of the ‘self’ (‘al-Birr’) depends not on whether you turn your faces to East or West. But righteousness is that: (1) One has conviction in God, and (2) the Last Day, and (3) the Angels, and (4) the Book, and (5) the Prophets. And that one gives of his cherished wealth to: Family and relatives, orphans, widows, those left helpless in the society, and those whose hard-earned income fails to meet their basic needs, those whose running businesses have stalled, the ones who have lost their jobs, whose life has stalled for any reason, the disabled, the needy wayfarer, son of the street, the homeless, the one who travels for assistance, those who ask for help, and those whose necks are burdened with any kind of bondage, oppression, crushing debts and extreme hardship of labor. (And righteous are) those who strive to establish the institution of Salaat, (2:3, 2:153) And help set up the Economic System of Zakaat. They are true to their pledge whenever they make one. And they remain steadfast in physical or emotional distress and in times of peril. It is those who have proven themselves to be true, and it is those who live aright. [Belief in Books 4:136, 2:4, 3:91-92. Yateem, Miskeen, Ibn-is-Sabeel, Fir-Riqaab, carry all the meanings rendered above. Please note that this verse gives us the well-known Five Articles of Faith. But belief in Taqdeer = Predetermined destiny, has been interjected in the fabricated Ajami Ahadith as the sixth article of faith by ‘Imams’, making Muslims fatalistic in their thought and behavior. The Qur’an nowhere mentions Taqdeer or the predestined fates of individuals. Qadar or Taqdeer always denote the laws, the due measure of all things appointed by God. And man determines his own destiny by following or defying those laws]
30:32 Those who split up their religion into sects with each sect delighting in whatever beliefs they have. [2:213, 3:104, 6:160, 23:53, 42:13. Sectarianism is invariably based on taking humans as ‘authorities’]

Deen = System of Life = The Divinely Prescribed Way of Life. In a loose sense, ‘religion’ equals ‘mazhab’ i.e. individual efforts to please God with rituals. ‘Religion’ even with a capital R may scarcely come close in meaning to the term ‘Deen’.
Salaat = To follow closely, like a runner-up (Musalli) follows the winning horse (Saabiq) = To follow Divine Commands.
Aqimussallat = Establish the System that facilitates the following of Divine Commands.
