Yoga did not arrive in the western world until the late 19th/early 20th century, but still did but gain prominence until the 1980s. Yoga is more than physical exercise; it has a meditative and spiritual core. One of the most widely proclaimed benefits of yoga is improved circulation. Healthy circulation is crucial for healthy, luminous skin, something we’re proudly passionate about. Consider these three low impact, all level yoga poses that can not only boost your skin health but also improve respiration, energy, and vitality and help balance metabolism.
