• Yoga for Anti-Aging

    My name is Matteo and I have just started Yoga in this Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh. I will turn 35 this year and I can say that my body is not in the same shape than 10 years ago (even less). I am certain that a daily practice of asanas will help me to manage my first aging.
