Furthermore, Ramdev also highlighted how yoga can help in slowing down the ageing process in the most natural and apt manner. Yoga does not just make you fit and healthy physically but also makes your mind more active and strong. It improves your immunity, gives you a toned body, flushes out the toxins, improves circulation of blood and has many other health benefits. This low-impact practice stretches and strengthens your body. It is also effective in making your skin healthy and ease wrinkles. There are many yoga poses that will slow down the aging process and make your body look younger, stressed Swami Ramdev.
