Breathe in faith, breathe out fear.

I’m obsessed with yoga.
When I can go to class 5 days per week, I feel amazing.
Problem is I’m often working 60-80 hours per week, and just can’t get to class. And I barely get time to practice at home.
But I am convinced that the regular practice of yoga is one of the greatest beauty tips ever.
5 Reasons I Love Yoga

1. The Zen Factor.
In a hectic, fast paced life, that hour or so of controlled movement and breathing is heaven. A peaceful, zenned out, stress-free face is a thing of beauty.
2. Breathe it on in, love it on out.
An hour focused on breath is a wonderful thing. (90 minutes is even better). Total focus on the breath helps get oxygen to every cell in your body. Every cell in your body benefits from oxygen, and with yoga breathing your skin glows and you feel wonderful.
3. Shapely Shoulders
Consistent and faithful practice of yoga gives you lovely, shapely arms, shoulders and upper back, and everything looks great with nice shoulders! Dresses, blouses, tanks and tee’s all drape beautifully from and look gorgeous with nicely shaped shoulders. Even if you are packing a little extra junk in the trunk, you can offset it and draw all the attention away from it with a lovely upper body.

4. Posture Perfect.
Constant practice of yoga naturally gives you lovely posture.
Your shoulders square, your strengthened core holds you upright, your tight hips and pelvis loosen, your new sense of balance changes the way you move.
Great posture speaks to inner confidence and calm, both of which are incredibly alluring.
You never see a truly stunning woman with bad posture. Virtually every major celebrity, model, and fashionista carry themselves with regal bearing.
5. Anyplace, Anytime
You don’t have to go to the gym or to a yoga studio to practice yoga. At any time in any place you can drop and stretch, center yourself, calm yourself, give yourself balance, and get relaxed.
