How To Find Your Perfect Yoga Flow, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

By | June 8, 2019

You don’t have to be a professional yogi to know that the ancient practice comes with some serious benefits. Improved strength and flexibility, reduced stress levels, a better sex life... just to name a few! But if you’ve never managed to stick to a yoga routine for more than a week at a time, you may be feeling like it’s ‘just not for you.’

But don’t dismay, chances are you just haven’t found the right type for you! Yoga isn’t a one-size-fits-all activity—there are various types to suit different tastes and personality types.

And if you ask us, there’s no better way to find out which type might be right for you than by looking to the zodiac chart. Because, regardless of whether you believe in them or think they’re ‘woo woo’, you’ve gotta admit that star signs can be scarily accurate!
