One thing I love about yoga is that it’s not just exercise — it’s great for your mind, body and your skin. 

Yoga requires a lot of deep breaths that deliver more oxygen to your skin, and is known to help increase circulation to help flush out toxins. 


Doing yoga also improves flexibility, energy and posture, and builds core strength in a low-impact, relaxing way.  It even helps with stress and immune system function, and has been linked to lower cholesterol. 

Best of all?  You can do it in a studio or right at home!  There are great videos, websites, and even apps to teach you the positions, and you don’t need anything more than a mat to get started!
