By Hannah Mallorca Published Jun 21, 2021 8:40 pm

In an ideal world, we have the time and motivation to commit to a fitness routine—but, we don’t. We get so caught up with our jobs and other everyday activities that we forget to let our mind and body relax. Luckily, yoga exists. 

Yoga is a life-changing exercise that connects your mind, body, and spirit. It helps you stay fit while boosting your mental health. From traditional classes like Ashtanga to slow, deep yin yoga, there’s a form of yoga that works for everyone.

Discover the benefits of this holistic exercise on International Yoga Day with the help of these Pinoy celebs who are yoginis at heart.
