Beating the winter blues with the healing modalities of yoga and reflexology (and why it matters to your skin)

yoga and reflexology routine for winter - healthy skin exercises - gentle holistic wellness remedies

Guest post by Brooke of Blissfully Barefoot & Azalea Yoga.

I’m Brooke one of Azalea yoga’s certified instructors and a certified reflexologist. I’ve been teaching yoga at many different facilities for the past three years and working with reflexology clients for the past year and a half.

I am writing to you today about how yoga and reflexology can help benefit the skin.

  • Increasing blood flow during exercise helps to nourish skin cells by increasing circulation.
  • A full reflexology treatment with a certified reflexologist will also help improve circulation.
  • Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells of your skin. This helps carry away any free radicals from the skin which can cause damage.
  • These yoga movements and reflexology assist you can do on yourself will help to release stress.
  • With stress reduced or removed skin will also benefit, creating a calmer happier you and calmer happier skin.

Yoga + Reflexology Routine

  • Start seated (any comfortable position) close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Feel your spine lengthen on each inhale and yourself ground with each exhale.
  • Take the right foot first and find the solar plexus reflex point.
  • Location: the center point right under the balls of the foot.
  • This is the area we hold a lot of stress and negative emotion.
  • Press into this point three times.
  • Pressing in and slightly up as you inhale and releasing as you exhale. Repeat on the left foot.
  • After the reflexology steps above, continue on with the gentle yoga routine pictured below.
