Yoga is a quintessential anti-ageing antidote, the integration of conscious work between body and mind is the way to build a healthy and long life. Through inversion postures you can boost this effect by promoting deep breathing, relaxation of the internal organs and blood flow to the face and brain, a natural elixir of beauty and calm.
