Yoga Tips for Glowing Skin and Stress Relief

November 2, 2021 |

Read Time: 7 minutes

At its core, Yoga has always been about observing one’s own actions and reactions to different situations. In this era of mental health crisis, observing your own actions and reactions, especially to stressful situations, is vital. During the first 18 months of the COVID19 pandemic, 74% of Indians reported suffering from stress. Daily yoga classes can benefit them all and make them better stress managers. Better stress management will inadvertently improve your physical, mental, and skin health.

Yoga is all about practice. Students must be ready to invest their time. Unfortunately, many Indians choose to invest their time and money into extravagant beauty products for skin rejuvenation. Currently, Indians spend an average of ₹700 on skincare products. Will these products guarantee improved skin health? Maybe. But, do you know what will guarantee improvements in your skin health? Daily yoga classes!

Sri Krishna Wellness Yoga Centre is a pioneer in the art of improving health via Yogic techniques. We offer live-online yoga training and free pre-recorded sample videos. Our in-person yoga classes in Bangalore attract thousands every year. But, if you can’t make it to Malleshwaram, no worries. Our Asanas and Yoga techniques will rejuvenate your skin and make it glow as no skincare product can.

Here are some fundamental Yoga techniques for skin rejuvenation students learn in our online yoga classes

Deep Breathing for Skin Rejuvenation – Why is it Important?



Most people use the upper parts of their chests to take small shallow breaths. Making this technique your standard way of breathing is very unsafe. In our curated yoga studio in Bangalore, this type of breathing is not allowed. Short and shallow breaths make people feel impatient and unaware. Such emotions end up attracting other negative feelings like insecurity.

Unlike short or shallow breaths, long and diaphragmatic breaths are good for the heart. We teach students diaphragmatic breathing that compels them to use their core muscles. Such breathing fills up their lungs wholly, reducing their average respiratory rates. The better your respiration, the clearer your skin. The risk of developing black spots or wrinkles reduce significantly when you improve your breathing.

Which Yoga techniques are the best for skin rejuvenation? For beginners, our yoga instructors recommend Pranayama (deep breathing exercises). Once students learn deep breathing, they can learn advanced Yoga techniques like Bhastrika (Bellows breath) or Kapalbhati.

How Does Pranayama Improve Skin Health?


Pranayama is a set of deep breathing exercises. Simple pranayama exercises can give practitioners the extra doses of oxygen they need to make their skin glow. Here’s how pranayama exercises improve skin health –

  • Deep breathing burns fat. Unlike diet-based fat loss programs, this form of healthy fat loss doesn’t strip the face of its glow. Instead, it rejuvenates different parts of the skin.
  • Deep breathing also balances out the hormones in the body. Improved hormonal health can have a powerful effect on your skin.
  • Effective breathing also boosts blood flow to the neck/face regions. When these parts of the skin constantly receive highly oxygenated blood, they look vibrant and glowing.
  • Deep breathing improves the student’s posture, which indirectly cures their neck/back problems and discourages distorted or shallow breathing.

Overall, Pranayama improves the integral aspects of our students’ postural functions. In our yoga classes in Bangalore, body postures are treated very seriously as they influence our muscle performances. Deep breathing gives the muscles in our bodies (especially the ones in the diaphragm area) the space to move freely. That’s why many asthma patients are recommended Yoga practices by Western medical experts.

Bad posture restricts their movement, leading to reduced oxygen supply in the bloodstream. The cure to skin health issues lies in improving our blood circulation. At our holistic online Yoga classes, students can learn all the breathing techniques they need for blood circulation improvements.

Which Yoga Techniques Will Improve My Skin Health?

Students can learn different types of Pranayama exercises at our online or in-person yoga classes in Bangalore. Here are some special Yoga poses and techniques that can significantly improve your skin health –

Bhujangasana – The Cobra Pose

Attaining the Cobra Pose enables practitioners to strengthen their back muscles. As they straighten and stretch their spine and back muscles, more amounts of oxygen pass through their bodies. This increased level of oxygen in the body is guaranteed to add radiance to the skin.

Matsyasana – The Fish Pose

Even a beginner can pick up this technique. Just like Bhujangasana, Matsyasana improves skin health by boosting blood circulation in the body. These basic back-bending poses will make your skin and internal organs more flexible. The risk of wrinkles or facial skin bloating reduces significantly when you practice Matsyasana every day.

At the Sri Krishna Wellness Yoga Centre, you can learn these skin rejuvenating Yoga techniques and more in detail. Learn advanced breathing techniques like -Parivrtta Sukhasana, Pawan Mukta Asana, or Bhastrika in our classes. We also offer four live sessions on the Krishna Wellness Yoga Centre digital platform.
